Hello Folks :
I just finished the GTB Book, and I'm looking forward to implement it, but before that I want to make sure I trully understand the GTD process to certain "reasonable" detail (it sounds, based on the forum feedback, that practice makes perfect ...), so I have two main doubts related with the general concepts of GTD :
- How often should you process the "in" basket (including you email inbox) ? The GTD Book explains quite good the process from the start, but I feel it is not clear "how life should be after that start" : the review process seems to be the prefered place to empty the "in" basket once a week, but it doesn't provide suggestions on how often to process the incoming things on the "in" basket for latter processing ... should this things wait a week for attention ? Should I start processing / organizing daily or when time is available ? Does it makes sense ?
- Difference between PROCESSING and ORGANIZING : is a bit confusing still to have both phases of GTD separated : is it critical to manage ALWAYS both phases of the process separated ? do they tend to mix when you manage the process regularly or that is not the best practice ? if so : why ? What should not be done as part of PROCESSING that must be addressed in ORGANIZING ?
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
