Capture, Clarify, Organize at the Same Time Antipattern


capture, clarify, organize at the same time antipattern

Sometimes, when stuff come to us, we tend to want to deal with them right now. Yet, when in the cognitive state to capture, you are likely not in the cognitive state to to the other steps. Also, you are likely to be in the middle of something else that you would have to put aside.

Therefore, I think the separation of 5 steps of gtd is above all a way to split those into separate time frames.

Somehow, I think that this is related to the capture and forget antipattern, because separating the steps needs to have a system to support those and you might only have time to capture.
