Four months using GTD and I've only just started doing a proper "Mind Dump", the Empty Your Head stage of the Weekly Review. I thought I'd been doing one before but this time I have used DA's Incompletion Trigger List which has made me think much more thoroughly about what needs doing and what is at the back of my mind. The trouble is that it has sent me scurrying off in all directions actually completing jobs rather than handling them in a more controlled way, with the Weekly Review taking another couple of hours. I suppose I'm doing things now because I don't trust myself to do them later.
Does anyone have any advice on how they do a more controlled Mind Dump than I am doing?
