Hi, I'm a GTD newbie, and this is my intro post
I have a really dumb question.
I understand that one can do any of the five stages of the GTD methodology at any time, and that it's very important to clearly define hard edges between the various stages (Collect, Process, Organize, Review, Do).
Now, I understand all the distinctions between the stages, except for Processing and Organizing. I mean, how can you process without organizing? Except for filing, of course. DA says you can engage in any single stage all by itself. I can see that you can just Collect, just Review, and just Do, but how can you just Process without Organizing at the very same time... again, except for filing.
Whenever I process it seems to me I also organize... which leads me to believe that I don't understand organizing or processing or both (hard edges).
I realize there's a very simple answer that I just can't see, but, hey, I'm a noob
Thanks in advance!
