Beware Too Much Process

Beware Too Much Process

Claire Tompkins has a different approach to getting things done. She jumps in first, and then works from there.

  • Try the easiest way to do something first and see if it works before you go on to something more complicated
  • Don’t get caught up in the process and lose track of what you’re trying to accomplish
  • Divide up work into chunks small enough and clear enough so that you can actually get to work on them

It’s an interesting reminder to step back and consider the end before instrumenting the middle of every process with our GTD tools.

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
