This is probably over-thinking, but I run across it often. Following the outlined workflow I pick up an item and ask "What is it?". The system is running smoothly so far. Now I ask "Is it actionable?" The answer to that question for basically every item is "Yes." My next action may be to throw it away, but that's an action.
To add to my confusion in following the workflow, if I answer "No," then it can still wind up on a "Someday/Maybe" list for future action--even though I just said it was not actionable.
It seems just asking "Is it actionable?" leaves out a temporal element and an element of my commitment to the item/action.
Any thoughts? Or am I just crazy (which is probably "yes")?
