You Don't Have To Do Everything
When I got introduced to GTD, one of the wrong assumptions I made was that if I capture something then I must do it. But, slowly I'm learning to look at my “captured” list as an “options” list.
These lists give me an overview of my commitments and I have the option to do something about them. i.e. engage or eliminate. This was such a relief!
Now, when I review my tasks (including the projects list), I ask myself – “Really? Do you still want to do this? Be Honest, Ridwan!”
I get the answer straight away and trust my intuition. This helps me either engage or eliminate the item. I hope it helps you too.
