David suggests to use 4 points model to choose a Next Action in the moment. I don't feel like fully understand this model. I assume the model should limit my options. Reality shows it doesn't. At least not always. Can you correct me or advice what's wrong in the example below:
1. Context. That allows to filter out 4 out of 40 Next Actions that I can't do @Work. Actually I can do them as well if I change the context itself. For example, I have a Next Action to brainstorm with my wife her birthday party. I can do it @Work over phone or take my car and go home to do that there instead of waiting when I get into @Home context to do that. Don't you think this filter (Context) is artificial?
2. Time. I usually have 1-2 hours blocks of non-scheduled time. It allows me to choose any of my Next Actions. So how do you apply that filter???
3. Energy. That's the most interesting and useless one for me. First of all, I have quite middle energy level through the whole day. Second, my boss or customer doesn't care if my energy level is low; or if I had a bad weekend; or anything else that caused energy loss. The work must be done - that's why I was hired. How can I use that filter in these conditions where other people define my work?
4. Priority. That's the last chance for me Take the most important one. That's clear at least. But I find it difficult to sort through 36 Next Actions left after 1-3 points filtering...
Does it mean the model is not working for me or I just use it wrong???
