I found myself at the start of my weekly review this morning with a long list of new projects from a meeting that finished late last night. The first task of my weekly review is to proces my inboxes and I normally, using the GTD definitions, Process and Organise as I go.
Today's list was too long for that. It felt like the time spent Processing and Organsing would eat into too much weekly review time. But then, how would I have a complete list of projects for the later steps...?
With this in mind I decided to scan the list for emergencies and put aside time later today to process it.
This all got me thinking. When people "Process" their inboxes for a weekly review to they:
- process = identify next action/file/trash and categorise, or
- process = identify next action/file/trash
Most of the time I tend to both process/organise, process/organise, ... each item as it comes out of the tray.
I'm interested in what you all think?
