Feel Confident Not Doing What You Are Not Doing


  • External reference:

See also procrastination.

A recurring phrase in gtd.

I think it means that you build the trusted system so that your brain can relax, because it knows something has captured the task, project commitments… anything that generally produces cognitive load.

Then, you decide to do something, you take a look at the system to realise how you feel not doing what is in here. If you feel confident, then do it. If you know that the stuff in your system are more important, you should hear that voice that says « this is actually more important » and decide to do it instead.

If you think you have forgotten what is important, take a look at your horizons of focus.
