@Ship69: I think it's worth asking yourself why you're having trouble getting to the more important things. Is it your approach to productivity, or is there another reason why you're gravitating to the less important tasks? If you're unclear about your priorities, or unconsciously resisting certain tasks for some reason, adding more layers to your life management system will be akin to rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. I recently played around with time-blocking after reading about @Longstreet's success with it. I haven't found it as useful as he has, but I think he and I would agree that it is only useful to the extent that you've made a rock-solid commitment to the thing you've blocked in your calendar. For example, I've taken up competitive running. I've already decided that I love it, I know why I'm doing it, and where it fits into the higher-level horizons of my life. So I schedule times during the week to run. It works because I'm already 100% committed to running. Scheduling it is just a tool to prevent other people from grabbing up my running time. My point is, whether you look into Franklin-Covey, kanban, time-blocking, Deep Work or something else, they won't help if the internal commitment isn't there. They'll just create more things to undermine your self-confidence and create frustration.
