ABC codes or gut feeling?
In his last e-letter, David Allen wrote: 'Before you spend another minute creating yet another list with ABC, 123, or high-medium-low codes as a way to define your priorities, read my essay this month. You may discover there's a more natural path for getting you what you need to get the right things done.'
I create the list in the evening for the next day. That allows me to do my top priority projects first (aka most important tasks, big stones, etc). When I'm allowed to choose in the moment I tend to choose easier tasks instead of doing my priority.
Are you agree with David Allen statement?
Static and dynamic prioritization.
I think David Allen is right that static 123/ABC priority codes are not productive.
But Most Important Tasks lists and "focus" lists for the next day and GTD "doing" phase prioritization are all dynamic one level only "systems" that are adaptive and simply work!
