Be frugal with things that repeat in your task management system!
I’ve made this mistake dozens of times, using my task apps as coaches, expecting them to nudge me towards being more productive. For a while this works, but sooner or later I start resisting. This distracts me from the most important things on my Today list which means my defensiveness is slowly me down.
Scheduling recurring tasks (think: calendar) works better for me and helps keep noise out of the task mix.
