Greg Knauss writes about dealing with back-log:
My entire life has devolved into an endless, grinding slog through my back-log. Everything I do is about catching up, doing the stuff I didn't get done the day before, plowing through some other goddamned thing that needs my attention. Ending the day without actually adding to the total aggregate is a victory. There are times when it piles up faster than I can shovel it away.
And ends with:
You're on notice, Entirety of Human Knowledge. You get a week. If you can't get my attention in that time — and it's plenty of time — then you're tossed, junked, thrown away and forgotten.
There are times when I wish I could do the same 😉
