The problem is you can always collect and process more than you can do. And at this stage in my journey I'm realizing that there is a certain place I must come to in accepting/resigning myself to that reality.
Todd, your journey sounds somewhat like mine. I've come to the point where I can collect and process without responding to each item instantly in a knee-jerk manner as a must-do, which results in anxiety and panic, but rather as an enriching part of my stock, or bank, of things I can choose from in the future (or perhaps never). (Maybe this is one way of moving more things to the S/M list??)
