Commitment in advance, increased chance of completion. Scientific study.
I hope someone may be able to help me with a question.
I read GTD and Making it all work a while back, excellent books with some truly great thinking.
I believe it was David Allen that quotes some research done with students over the Christmas break and their increased tendency to complete if they made a commitment ahead of time to the paper that the study was based around.
I am trying to find the writing on this / the original study as it' something that I want to look at in more detail.
I haven't been able to find it in the books and I am wondering if actually it wasn't David Allen that was writing about this.
if anyone can shed any light on this I would be most grateful.
