The mind is for having ideas not holding them. — David Allen (GTD)
The faintest ink is more powerful than the strongest memory.
Ever made a mental note … and lost it?

Every commitment unfinished is an “open loop”; and when it is tracked in your psyche, instead of your system, it will require energy and attention to track and maintain. Once the open loops are captured, you can manage completion by using an external system that takes much less energy than keeping it in your head. Every commitment unfinished requires management in a trusted system until it is done or discontinued. — David Allen (GTD)

The river of information flowing toward us – about people, about God, and about all we have to do as pastors continually threatens to overwhelm us. How can we get our chaos under our control? [1]
