Writing a task description

We draw parallels from the product management world. When building product, we need to focus on critical tasks that contribute to a milestone with short deadlines. We need to know 1) who we're doing it for, 2) to produce what result, and 3) for what purpose.

Who are we doing this task for?
We need to keep track of your preferences for doing a specific task. Like Airtable? Let's use Airtable. Prefer CSVs exported and emailed? Done. It's our job to advise how these workflows can be improved as well.

To produce what result?

  • What is the tangible deliverable that the assistant will be giving you?
  • For document preparation, I'll give you a compiled PowerPoint for a business presentation
  • For job searching, I'll consider my task finished when I've successfully appled to 100 jobs

For what purpose?

  • This is also important as well. Even though the main goal is for you to save time, usually, some tasks block other tasks from being completed
  • By knowing the context of what this task is in your general workflow, we would be able to predict how the current task can be transformed for future needs, and be able to priortize tasks that you give us a lot better

To set a deadline for a task, you can set a limit for the amount of hours or minutes worked. You can also set a deadline at which the task needs to be done by. We prefer our deadlines to be short over longer deadlines.
