Algorithms to Live By: No Yaks

I am currently reading

Algorithms to Live By: The Computer Science of Human Decisions Book by Brian Christian and Tom Griffiths and in particular the section on scheduling.

The book spends a while talking about tasks which initially looks like they are low priority jobs, but they hold up a higher priority jobs. The book talks about priority inheritance, but I know this by a different term: Yak shaving
