Swamped but Coping

I'm neck deep in tasks. Or am I really ? Do you ever get that feeling that you're running and running but not really going anywhere ?

How do you cope ?

Patrick a few weeks ago introduced me to emergent task timing . The idea, it seems, is to force yourself to be aware of the time you spend on tasks by checking in every 15 minutes. There is flash application with a time sheet you can mark. It sounds an alarm every 15 minutes to remind you to mark the sheet and to adjust your tasks accordingly.

Does it work ? I'll find out soon.
