I’m a fan of David Allen’s Getting Things Done.  His book spawned an entire industry.  It also causes a lot of stress.

A few years ago David was speaking at a conference and folks asked how he managed to get things done:

1) Nothing gets done until I process everything.  No cheating. 

2) When I have time, I process everything into a single “Trusted” place.  Some folks use a journal.  Others use software. 

3) I review my potential work weekly and decide if I still need to do it.

Remember -

Nothing added to your list is more important than tasks already there.  Processing everything together will reveal the best path.  Stay focused, my friend.
