I’m a big fan of David Allen’s “Getting Things Done.” Unfortunately, I’m nowhere near as consistant with it as I should be. But trying to hop back on the wagon today, got me thinking about priorities in WoW.
I’ve always struggled with priorities in general, both in game and out. But I guess part of it is trying to figure out in general, what I want to do.
I obviously have set priorities with achievements. I tend to post those every Tuesday. But there are so many competing interesting things vying for my play time, I jump around on what I want to do.
Generally, my priority most days starts with my daily random for frost. I almost always get that done. And if there is an opportunity for a raid, that usually comes second. Lately after that come working on Master of Wintergrasp and The Loremaster. Oh, but then usually you can throw playing with the auction house alt in there. And then there’s fishing to get Dragonfin Angelfish for my raid buff food, because it’s better for me than the Fish Feast. And there’s still at least one upgrade I could use out of Halls of Reflection, but I haven’t been seeking out those runs. And then the Battered Hilt is a pretty significant upgrade for me, but I can’t tell you the last time I ran one of the new instances when it didn’t pop up as a random. The hilt and gear and fishing all aid in raids which are a higher priority for me than working on my achievements, but I haven’t been touching those.
Oh and there’s still upgrades I need for tanky gear. And working on my PVP set.
(Can you see why I have no non-bank alts?)
And then there’s the ad-hoc things like when guildies are looking for someone to run something with them, which I feel guilty about doing less than I should lately to help them out. Oh, and there are definitely upgrades in VoA for both PvP and PvE, but I haven’t been running that either.
Gah! How do you juggle it all?
