Not Sure Where To Start

I'm starting this not knowing where to start.

I'll keep a diary of my progress, in hopes that I'll have some sort of breakthrough - big or small.

I chose this class because I have a lot of work and responsibilities. I get a lot done during the day, but I feel like I'm barely staying ahead of some tasks. 

QUIZ RESULTS

I took the quiz, and it's worse than I thought...

THINGS & EVERNOTE

Interested to see why I should use Evernote and Things. I'm not skeptical, I just haven't used both in depth and want to learn how to utilize them to make things more simple in my life.

ANSWER: Task Manager (Things) and Reference Container (Evernote)

OPEN LOOPS

I have 34 open loops off the top of my head. Not to mention the replies needed in my inbox. 

MISC NOTES

Process top item first. 

Don't put things aside - decide upon looking at it. 

If you don't have time to make a decision, don't look at it.

1. What is it?

2. Is it actionable?

NO / NOT ACTIONABLE:
1. Trash 
2. Someday/Maybe (vacations you want to take, etc. - things that you want to do but aren't actionable right now)
3. Reference (Menus from favorite restaurants, Family notes or pictures, etc - things I don't need to take action on, but want to keep)

YES / ACTIONABLE
1. Send it to your task manager.

Actions: 

What is the next physical action? Write those out in your to-dos.

PROGRESS

I still need to close the loops on my emails. 

On Phase 4 of 5. More to come...
