I’m having difficulty with completing my Weekly Review. The largest culprit is attempting to DO versus just Process, (this is due to imitation 2 minute tasks…Looks like a 2 min task turns into something larger) so as a result I am not getting completely through the Weekly Review. (and ultimately not receiving the total payoff of GTD)
I know I have read over and over the key to success with GTD is to keep the 5 Phases of Workflow separate. (Collecting, Processing, Organizing, Reviewing and Doing)
Another issue is keeping Processing and Organizing separate. When it comes to Processing isn’t the end step going to dove tail into Organizing? (I use a Palm Pilot and Outlook as my main collection bucket) I probably have read some info about it, but if others have some clarifiers / techniques that help keep them on track and FINISHING their Weekly Review I would appreciate the feedback.
PS I liked the example in the “Ready for Anything” about looking at your work through different view points, (Vice President, Executive, Manager)…But I would like a little more on this if it is possible.
