This time of year, with the holiday madness starting to spin up, there's a good reason to adopt the carpenter's equivalent of "measure twice, cut once." When we get busy, it's hard to stay focused so that items on our list get done properly rather than having to go back for rework.
In juggling work projects that need to be finished before the end of the year with a long list of "to do's" at home, try to prioritize then give each of those tasks the right amount of time so that you don't end up with what I call a "do-over."
And while you're at it, take a more objective look at that list of priorities once you've laid them all out. You may find that you can eliminate at least half of them if simplification is a goal.
