How do you strategize when assignments are largely not urgent? I had several files that were longer-term and I had a long time to work on them, but I just wasn’t motivated to do so and kept working on shorter term things instead, and now they’re all coming due and some are blowing up because I didn’t organize/prioritize well. The next few weeks are going to be a crazy amount of catch-up. Any advice so I can avoid doing this to myself again?

Home office revamp recommendations:
1. Autonomous standing desk: honestly the best desk ever! Order arrived in 3 days, even better quality than I imagined. I got the L shape one, fits 3 monitors and a laptop comfortably on one side. Now I stand while taking calls. I wish I had it last year during busy season. Oh I have a promo code if anyone is interested: R- 200les
2. Steelcase gesture office chair: same chair as PwC office.

In your honest opinion, do you believe PwC's org. is structured in a way that allows us to be competitive in the market and retain talent? I sometimes feel we have too much of org. 'fat' embedded.
