Any tips for training myself out of 24x7 processing and into something more controllable?
I've been working with GTD for a couple months now, and I love the feeling of a clean inbox and clear mind. But I find that I've developed a bad habit - love a clean inbox so much, that when I receive an "In" item that takes less than two minutes, I'm tempted to just jump in and do it immediately, regardless of whether the thing I was already concentrating on is more important.
This, of course, leads to a lot of task-switching and inefficiency, and with even just a few of these tangents, my larger goals don't end up getting as much attention as they should.
Anybody have suggestions that will train me to just jot it down, stick it in "in", and stay on track with what I'm supposed to be working on at the moment?
