Basic GTD: "Big Picture" Reviews

A core concept of GTD is that the control of our daily activity (task and project management), to make sense and be done efficiently, it must be governed by a broader perspective (responsibilities, goals, vision and life purpose).

At some point you must clarify what you want, what your principles are and what long-term goals are those that drive your decisions.

It is a serious mistake not to do this thinking exercise. And it is also a mistake to do it only once and believe that things will never change. Set an appropiate frequency for your “big picture” reviews, and do not avoid them. In these reviews you should include questions like:

  • What do I want to achieve in my work?
  • In what situation I would like to be within two or three years?
  • What is the life-style that is most fulfilling to me?
  • Am I doing what I really want or I need to do?

The purpose of GTD is not simply getting things done; it is about developing a more meaningful way of life, in harmony with your personal challenges.
