Everything on my action lists is for getting done as soon as I can—otherwise they wouldn’t be on the list. – David Allen

This is a big “Aha moment” nugget! Those people complaining about “action list” being unrealistic don’t actually know what “action list” really is! It is “for getting done as soon as I can” – keyword there is “I Can”. Or do. Something doable in the next closest opportunity.
David shares his actual lists during seminars and my reaction to seeing them was, “That’s It?”.
Seemed too easy and too simple. Oh yeah, that’s the point.
Got it, thanks David.
This is news to me. Everything on my action list is for getting done, but when did “as soon as I can” come in?
Is there somewhere I could see an example of David’s lists?
David’s live public seminars are the only place to see his lists, that I can recall.
