🔗 Doing more only makes a to-do list grow longer

A to-do list isn’t a catch all. It’s not a list of tasks that could be done. It’s a ruthlessly prioritized list of tasks that must be done.

Each and every item on a to-do list must earn its spot. If a new one is to be added it must at least be better than the bottom item on the list.

A set of criteria I’m apt to adopt. I’m great at the capture step of Getting Things Done methodology. The act of capturing is not enough proof of worth. Catch and release is an available strategy.
