GTD MIND SWEEP TRIGGER LIST PDF

But in the normal course of your day, there are many other things that demand part of your attention. Projects started, not completed. Waiting for… information, delegated tasks, replies, petty cash, ordered items, decisions of others, etc. The fact that collecting is the first stage does not mean that you should do it only once, at the beginning. You turn on the heating and soon you get the room at the right temperature for you to work.

Whether you learned GTD from the book or heard it from The David himself via one of his excellent seminars , you know that the vital first stage of Getting Things Done is Collection.

As laid out in Chapter 5: Basically, everything is already being collected, in the larger sense. Not coincidentally, this is almost always stuff that represents some kind of incompletion, functional fuzziness, or procrastination on your part.

Get it on paper As I tell my coaching peeps, anxiety unexpectedly becomes your best friend once you start to make a list, so try starting with a single sheet of printer paper and a pencil, set a timer for 10 minutes, and just begin scraping every conceivable anxiety and "open loop" from the corners of your brainpan.

You need them out. Work the anxiety Remember, this is your big chance to reward that overly sensitive constitution of yours by converting the fuel for flopsweat into items that can later be made actionable or deferred or delegated or killed etc. Reading that list sends my own head into paroxysms.

Relentless, exhaustive, and focused For the sweep to really do its best work, you must call upon extraordinary willpower to stay in collection mode. Remember the day you finally "got" how GTD worked by firewalling your planning time from your doing time? Same idea here. No straying. Staying focused on, as DA says, quantity of items captured is paramount. Be slavish about constantly returning to capture and follow every mental rabbit hole as far as it goes.

Relief is at the other end. So, now what? Did anxiety or a feeling of being overwhelmed contribute to avoiding proper planning and execution of these items? Might there be holes in my system that have made it easy for some of these items to escape and resist subsequent capture? Has my work, home life, or general focus changed in subtle ways that might make me want to rethink best use of my planning time?

Are there interesting clusters within these projects that suggest opportunities and imminent change? What sorts of tasks and projects are causing the biggest pain for me now?

And how can I evolve a system that helps to compensate for that? Do you need more collection or can you proceed to processing? The point is, capture the first time you think of it and you can rededicate that mental processing cycle to more interesting creative work. Have you had good luck using Collection and mind-sweeps to get back into Getting Things Done? Got an inspiring tip to help other folks get back in the swing via smart Collection?
