Earlier in the week, as you can see by the above red spike, I started falling behind again.
Today, I started with a big rock, a research paper that his been sitting around for months, waiting for me to just edit it and mail it in. At this point, I need my coauthors to reread it. That means that I can now shift it back to Friday.
Next, I worked on a few minor tasks that were due yesterday and Monday.
I also rescheduled a few overdue tasks into next week. Is that cheating?
