He recommends assigning priorities (immediate, within two weeks, other), and
then throwing out the "other".

Some of us work on long-term projects that last more than two weeks. I've
got four major documents on the go right now. The first draft of one is due
by the end of this week; one first draft is in client review right now, and
I'll get it back by April 15; the other two are in progress, and first
drafts are due by May 30 and June 30.

Many items on my to-do list are due several weeks away. Some tasks require
setting aside a significant block of time; those tasks are marked in my
calendar as such. Other tasks (and they are legion!) are small but
essential; each one might only require an hour, so I keep them on my running
list and cross off each when I can.

BTW, my list is about 12 pages.
