It can all be done simultaneously. I'm working on a couple of
those items along with a few others simultaneously.
I can't dedicate all my energy to one item, though. I often need
to work on something, and then step away from it for a while. I
then work on something else, and when I get back to the first
item, I see with greater clarity.
Also, sometimes I have to wait for others. For example, I submit
a DIP, and I need to wait for it to go through the process.
While that's happening I work on something else.
And then, sometimes, I just don't have many cycles left at the
end of the day. But I still find it therapeutic to work on
trivial things; it relaxes me.
There's no reason any and all work that moves D forward shouldn't
be encouraged. If bool is clowny, and someone's willing to do
something about it, why discourage them from doing so?
