Collect Process Organize Review Do
Gather together all your loose bits of data: post-its, scraps of paper, ideas floating in your head, brochures, etc.
1. No Action Required 2. Action Required
It’s trash or can be deleted It should be in a “someday/maybe” pile It should go into a reference pile (for brochures, general info, stuff you might be interested in later on)
Fewer than 2 minutes Just do it. More than 2 minutes mark where it needs to go next.
Big Projects – for ongoing tasks Library – to look up Phone – to call Computer – to Calendar – to log in Desk work – to read, write, draw, etc.
Sort your “Action Required” scraps into your categories. Prioritize within your categories, and try to estimate how long each task’ll take you.
What worked that week? What didn’t? Do I need new categories? Re-categorize tasks as they move through the stages.
CONTEXT – can I do it here, now, with what I have? TIME – do I have enough time? ENERGY – if not, do something smaller to make you feel accomplished PRIORITY – do the more important tasks first (obviously)
