Reflection and GTD

Just watched the u-tube video of David Allen talking about Getting Things Done - excellent and really helpful in thinking about how to organise myself better in my new job.

His ideas about distributed cognition and GTD were interesting - getting stuff out of your mind in a way that makes them more manageable, resonates with conversations I was having with Digby at Londonmet about reflection.

Effective action requires requisite attention - therefore we need tools to free up attention. If I have a range of effective reflective mirrors to give me information about what I am doing and how effective I am being - that is less to think about and more attention I can give to my action.
