Capture Everything: Capture anything that crosses your mind. Nothing is too big or small! These items go directly into your inboxes.
Clarify: Process what you’ve captured into clear and concrete steps. Decide if an item is a project, next action, or reference.
Organize: Put everything into the right place. Add dates to your calendar, delegate projects to other people, file away reference material and sort your tasks.
Review: Frequently look over, update, and revise your lists.
Engage: Get to work on the important stuff.
