Author David Allen shows us how to use the Reflect stage of Getting Things Done® to set aside time every week to review what really needs to be done, and what doesn't.
- Well, now that we've captured what's got your attention,…clarified what they mean, and actually organized it,…ya can't just leave it there.…A lot of people maybe make lists,…but then they don't look at them…and don't engage with them…and they're still using their head again.…So the strange thing about this…is you actually have to engage with your mind…to be able to get things off your mind.…What do I mean by that?…Step four, reflect, review.…Step back and take a look,…you know, fairly simple.…Now, review and reflect happens on multiple levels,…all the levels that we have our commitments.…
