A logical 5-phase approach to manage our week
While the first framework, Focus, is a strategic look at our life, this second approach is a tactical look at how we deal with the things coming at us throughout the day.
In the first phase, we will capture everything as it comes to us, into tools that we trust (hint: the worst capture tool is our memory).
Having captured it, we need to clarify its meaning – processing it and determining the next action.
If we can’t action it immediately, we will then want to organise the results into a system that reminds us of what we need to do, when we need to do them.
The fourth phase is the critical success factor, building time in our schedule to review and reflect on all of the things we’ve not yet being able to do.
And in the final stage, we need to engage with and trust our systems as we choose what to do in any given moment.
