  • Do you pre-choose next action to do?

    I don't know how to make a poll so would provide options here. When do you choose a Next Action to do: first thing in the morning, at the current moment or in the evening for the upcoming day. Would be interesting to know when David Allen does it himself.

    Most of my action choices are made in the moment, but regular (especially weekly) reviews of my system guide my intuition behind the choices.

    There can be value in choosing a handful of actions to do at the start of your day (there's a habit called making an MIT (Most Important Tasks) list in ZTD (Zen-to-Done, an offshoot of GTD), but you need to be able to recalibrate that list in a moment's notice if your world changes to the point where that list no longer has the highest priorities on them.
