Well, my point with the 2-minute rule items not being written down was that they get done right then and there (as you are processing)... so, there is nothing to not forget.Originally Posted by dbobfish
You don't necessarily do your 2 minute items as soon as they arrive; You pick up the item from your inbox while in process-mode, realize that it could be done in less than 2 minutes and wham... you do it and it's done.
Now, you won't necessarily have two points of reference (paper & pda) if you're writing stuff down on paper and then tossing it into your inbox. If you're processing regularly, the NAs on the scraps of paper in your inbox will be transfered to your pda. So, you only will have one point of reference.
Keep in mind that the intent of "projects & NAs" is to remind you of your commitments. The NAs need to be specific enough so that you don't have to rethink what it is that you have to do... You don't have to think because you already thought...
So, don't make your NAs TOO big, you know?
