David Allan has been very explicit: most people have more to do than they can possibly do. Active projects can always be done a bit better, there are old projects that we could do but for money/time/energy, exciting new projects, urgent projects, et cetera. Ultimately, we must choose what to do and be comfortable with our choices. If you have an area of focus where a standard is "my home is beautiful" and an area of focus where a standard is "I provide care for the people I love when they are ill" then you may have competing claims for your attention which may only be resolved at the level of your life goals. Our most important job at all levels is to say "this, but not that, not now" and know why we are consciously making our choices. "Know thyself" is the great commandment behind most of gtd.
