What I actually bother to enter as a task into Taskwarrior is somewhat arbitrary, but generally, it's one or more of these things:
- It will take significant time.
- It will be painful.
- I might forget about it.
Looking back at this list, I probably feel like not much got done because a lot of it was "defense" — stuff that's important but isn't in any way "deep". Even things like building a music web site are sort of defense. You're not actually making the music when you do that. Nor are you making music when you send music you've already made to sites that have a small chance of being interested in it.
I'm a classic defense procrastinator, though, so I guess I just have to live with this until I'm caught up on being reasonably "defended."
