Getting things done:The 4-Criteria Model

4-Criteria Model for Choosing Actions in the Moment (Getting Things Done – David Allen)

1. Context : Location, access to enabling resources influence what can and cannot be done in the moment.

2. Time available: The key is when do you have to do something else? You can’t fit a 20-minute task into 5 minutes.

3. Energy available: Starting a task that requires a lot of creative energy when you are challenged to keep your eyes open is not such a good idea.

4. Priority: Given the 3 above, choose the action that gives you the highest returns.

  1. This is a good summary, I discovered your weblog doing research google for a related topic and arrived to this. I couldnt come across to much additional details on this piece of writing, so it was good to locate this one. I will certainly end up being returning to look at some other posts that you have another time.
