Chapter 6 focuses on the components in the workflow diagram’s center column, i.e., all the steps involved in processing and deciding your next actions. Of note, the author recommends you to
read through this chapter and the next one, on organizing your actions, before you actually start processing what you’ve captured in ‘in’.
There is the book, the website, the blog, the podcast, and many other resources online to help you implement the Getting Things Done method. While I am currently going through the book, I am still looking around for more info…
Did I get overwhelmed with too many things to capture? Did the
stacks around the in-tray fall on me? Did I lose track of time in the process? Is there so much stuff on the floor that I cannot even find the book anymore?
Just gathering a few more things than you currently have will probably create a positive feeling for you. But if you can hang in there and really do the whole capturing process, 100 percent, it will change your experience dramatically and give you an important new reference point for being on top of your work and your world. Let’s dig into chapter 5 to see how to fulfill this promise…
The first chapters of the book were about the method – the
conceptual framework, as David Allen put it. While the workflow seems quite straightforward, its implementation is another story. Fortunately, in chapter 4, David Allen
provide[s] a logical sequence of things to do, to make it as easy as possible for you to get on board and glean the most value from these techniques.
Most projects […] need no more than a listing of their outcome and next action for you to get them off your mind. They don’t need to go through
the full planning model described in this chapter. Phew! However, for the remaining 20 percent of projects, you may want to consider reading chapter 3.
The basic purpose of [the GTP] workflow-management process is to facilitate good choices about what you’re doing at any point in time. Workflow? What workflow? Read on if you want to
move from hope to trust in your actions, immediately increasing your energy and effectiveness.
A gold mine of insights into strategies for how to have more energy, be more relaxed, with more clarity and presence in the moment with whatever you’re doing, and get a lot more accomplished with much less effort. This is the promise of the book Getting Things Done by David Allen.

According to Wikipedia,
abstention is a term in election procedure for when a participant in a vote either does not go to vote (on election day) or, in parliamentary procedure, is present during the vote, but does not cast a ballot. In keeping with Wikipedia definition,
voter turnout is the percentage of registered voters who participated in an election (often defined as those who cast a ballot). No matter how you call it – abstention or low turnout – this
is attributed to disillusionment, indifference, or a sense of futility (the perception that one's vote won't make any difference).
