Imagine an important grant application deadline approaching next month, delaying the submission for
a couple weeks, but then a critical incident happens (perhaps, something like a pandemic) that diverts
attention for weeks, months, or much longer. The routine tasks that require action are not performed in
a timely manner, and the deadline for that grant application is now gone. Developing some small habits
like prioritizing would have significant effect on productivity and effectiveness of response and
recovery efforts for a future crisis.
