Processing and Organizing - Separate Steps?
I recently heard someone I admire in the GTD community saying on a podcast that Processing and Organizing are to be done separately. I must be confused. When I process one of my inboxes I identify what the item is and what is to be done with it. I immediately then put it where it belongs whether it is setting it up as a new Project or an action in my preferred tool, delegating it, etc. I don't understand why I would go through the 50-100 work related items in my email inbox each day and process them but not organize them. And then go right back and go through everyone again and organize these items. Just an example. The same applies to going through a stack of stuff in a paper inbox and then throwing everything back in the box and going through again to organize. I really think the problem here is me. I must not understand. Thanks for any feedback.
