David Allen’s Two Minute Rule

David Allen (author of Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity): “If you determine an action can be done in two minutes, you actually should do it right then because it’ll take longer to organize it and review it than it would be to actually finish it the first time you notice it. If you don’t avoid the question about what’s the next step, lots of two minute items could be done right then”- 1-on-1: David Allen’s Two Minute Rule
