Sometimes people can get too caught up in a GTD mindframe. Each and every task which comes in they will write down on their to-do list, and take the appropriate steps to complete it. However some tasks can be done right away, avoiding stress at a later stage.
For me, if something actionable will take less than 5 minutes to do I will do it right away. The task does not get added to my to-do list. Instead, it gets done as soon as it reaches one of my data collection points, and it doesn’t cause me to procrastinate – which means no stress.
However, some tasks are too large to apply the “Do it and it’s done” method to, which is why I enjoy publishing productivity related posts – to help you manage these larger projects and tasks and get them done in an efficient manner.
Do it and it’s done. The phrase to keep in mind – I recommend you print it out and stick it on the wall behind your workstation.
