Two of the most valuable questions GTD has provided me are 1. what is the desired outcome? and 2. what is the next action? I have recently wondered if there is a clarifying question that may help me to decide what to do in the moment while reviewing my calendar/lists. It may take the following form: What do I want to do now that will provide the greatest payoff? What next action is most valuable to do right now? What do I feel like doing now? Which action is most on my mind right now? I think the (presumptuously) official answer per GTD is: "Given my contexts, energy available, and time available, which action do I want to take from all of my options, while considering my projects, goals, areas, vision and purpose (or rather than taking an action, do I want to define my work or respond to work as it shows up)?" ...but that is a little unpractical, albeit somewhat accurate answer. I wonder if I practiced using a go-to question each time I decide what to do next, it may better help me to consciously and thoughtfully make a choice. I use my next actions lists often, but sometimes I know I don't do what is the highest priority (i.e. greatest payoff). Does anybody have a question they've devised that has helped them make the "follow your intuition" admonition when deciding what to do next?
