David Allen on attention and daily activities.
Question: How do we know if the way we are handling our daily activities is right or wrong?
David’s answer: It’s not a matter of right or wrong—it’s simply, “Am I appropriately engaged with this and my commitments about it?” So you only need to pay attention to what has your attention. Only things that are not on “cruise control” are grabbing your attention. So you need to decide what you need to do about them, and park the results of that thinking, especially the next action required, in an appropriate place or with an appropriate person.
