key object in Getting Things Done
any thing we want to accomplish in this world eventually has to manifest itself in an intentional physical activity... Like a lot of you, I've struggled with how you turn "thinky work" into physical action widgets, but here are a few of my favorite task-verbs: web-research; Brain Storm; email/call (seek outside input/advice); assemble questions; Writing. You'll notice I left off the verb you were really casting about for here, which is almost certainly "decide". Deciding, as I hope you learned today, is actually a kind of project outcome. Decisions can only be delivered after you've nourished them with timely and thought-provoking information. Once the fetal decision has consumed these sufficient data, a bouncy baby outcome cannot help but be born.
