Please read the previous post before you read this one - Are you filling your treasure chest with plastic trinkets?---.
Your choice of whether you will do the plastic, zircon, emerald or diamond activities will depend on whether the actiivites are "urgent" or "not urgent".
"Urgent" plastic and zircon activities are distractions that will pull you to focus on them and do them.
"Urgent" emerald and diamond activities usually gets done.
It is the "not urgent" emerald and diamond activities that have a major chance to get neglected.
Keeping this model in our mind will help us to understand why we behave the way we do.
The questions to ask yourself are from two angles;
Is the urgency forcing you to choose the plastic and zircon activities?
Is the lack of urgency causing you to neglect the emerald and diamond activities?
These are very important questions for everyone of us to ponder over.
