When using “My Tasks” What I really want is for Asana to “zoom” (zoom = move to and highlight the term.) (Like Excel or Word does)
LESSON: If I search for a task and don’t get “zoomed” to the task I can’t drag the task to prioritize it.
Asana currently shows me a result, but I need to drag that result “further up” the “my tasks list”.
GOAL: drag “high-priority” tasks further up the list.
LESSON: If I can’t see it, I won’t get to it.
If the task is too far down the list (“de-prioritized”), I won’t get to it.
My job scope is too large. Therefore I get too many tasks to actually complete.
I can’t do all tasks, but I can:
- “DOC (document) all tasks”. (I can put them in Asana)
- Prioritize those tasks “real-time”.
a. DEFINITION “real-time”: At the moment I receive a task I can
i. “doc” the task
ii. prioritizing the current task against Previous tasks and Expected future tasks
Prioritization occurs through “x” methodology (different for every person, position, and business)
How prioritization occurs is the same for all people.
a. Capture the task
b. Categorize the task
i. Apply it to the correct project
ii. Prioritize it among the “my tasks” list (one-off, ad-hoc, and short tasks that don’t belong to a larger project)
HERE IS THE POINT:
Most of my tasks are these SMALL one-off tasks.
I prioritize these tasks by dragging them up and down the “my tasks” list.
If I search for a task and don’t get “zoomed” to the task I can’t drag the task to prioritize it.
