4 criteria model for choosing what to do didn't work!
I was disappointed with GTD last Friday. I have my system set up and lined up. It was early morning when I needed to start doing something. I used 4 criteria model for choosing what to do. I was in my car so I limited my contexts to @Calls-chat and @Calls-meetings. I had time and energy available to shoot out all the calls! Great!
My Friday, Monday and Tuesday now filled with meetings I had to do. Today I had a weekly review. I discovered that in my @Computer list there's a Next Action to write an essay for the magazine. And my days are filled with meetings already! What a disappointment!
Now I know that I have to scan so called ASAP action lists daily in the morning not to miss what have to be done. The 4 criteria model doesn't work as it works inside of a given context and doesn't look across all contexts you have in your system. Why not to exclude a context limitation and state LOOK THROUGH ALL OF YOUR CONTEXTS carefully not to miss an important action?
