GTD and Mega Millions

With all the news leading up to the Mega Millions $640 million jackpot, lots of people have been asking each other, “What would you do if you won the lottery?”

Along a similar line, David Allen recently asked in a tweet, “With nothing left to do, what would you do?” Some people have leveraged that question to consider what they would still choose to put on their to do lists, even if all the items that they have to do because of money were no longer there. Of course winning the lottery could mean you’d have a whole new set of financial projects and actions. But for the moment, set aside financial management on the runway to 20,000 levels. Assume your new fortune is on cruise control, and you can put your attention anywhere else you choose.

How would winning a jackpot change the way your to do list represents your goals and purposes in the higher levels of the horizons of focus model? And is there any of that you can start moving forward on, even before you win the lottery?
