Your Unprocessed Tasks list shows you all tasks that you entered but have not yet processed. When you add new tasks, they should always appear here, with the most-recently-entered tasks at the top.

Collecting to your Unprocessed list is easy. Just add a new task, type in a name, and type in notes to clear your mind.

Processing the list is exactly as taught in the Processing lessons, except the tasks are already in the Unprocessed Tasks list. No need to triage. Follow the Processing Flow Chart to move these tasks from your Unprocessed Tasks (a collection point) into your task list (not a collection point). You are really only doing three things:

  • Deciding what the project and next steps are (if you haven’t already done so).
  • Scheduling the task for later.
  • Assigning contexts for this particular step.
