"Over the past 30 years, I've developed a sort-of-guide by which I gage the importance of tasks assigned to me.
1. If it's on fire, it's an actual emergency
2. If blood is spouting from it, it's an actual emergency
3. If a spouse is using "that tone of voice", it's an actual emergency
4. If neither (1), (2) nor (3) and a project manager is involved, it is not only an emergency, but the work will become easier if you let it sit for a few days
More often than not, it works (at least for me). "
