How to effectively use your mind

Date: Friday, September 24, 2010 by GTD Times Staff

“Use your mind to think about your work, instead of thinking of it.

Your mind does not remember or remind very well, compared to what a good system can manage. What it does do well is review options and available information and then put together “how-tos.” It’s not free to do that if it’s trying to remember and remind. Without an airtight system, it must work at a lower level than it should and becomes a misused resource.”
