The experienced designer's unsaid rules for getting work done
by Tobias van Schneider
It may not be common advice, but with time, every designer learns this is the only way to manage creative work.
1. The thing you’re avoiding is likely the thing you need to do first.
2. If you can hand it off to someone who will do it faster or better than you, hand it off.
3. If you have a full day and someone gives you a new task, ask them: "Which task would you like me to complete today?" This puts the responsibility on them to prioritize the task for you, and for themselves.
