Discuss all things Remember The Milk.

For the procrastinators (like me) out there

I tend to postpone certain tasks over and over in a vain attempt to avoid them. To address that I occasionally schedule some time to face those tasks head on. I do this by using an Advanced Sort.

When in the desired task list where the often-avoided tasks are buried, click on the gear for the Sort drop-down and choose Advanced, then New and use these settings:

1st sort by: Postponed, descending
2nd sort by: Priority, ascending

Your list will be sorted with the most-avoided task at the top. If you are curious, you can see just how many times you have postponed a task by clicking the small case "i" near the upper right corner when viewing task details.

My worst one today was postponed 24 times....

Awesome tip! (Although I'm a little afraid to look at this sort... :)
