Excerpt from getting things done by David Allen, it's likely that you also have more internal commitments currently in play than you're aware of. Consider how many things you feel, even the smallest amount of responsibility to change finish, handle or do something about. You have a commitment, for instance, to deal in some way with every new communication landing in your email, on your voice mail and in your in basket. And surely there are numerous projects that you sense need to be defined in your areas of responsibility as well as goals and directions to be clarified, a career to be managed and life in general to be kept in balance. You have accepted some level of internal responsibility for everything in your life and work that represents an open loop of any sort, anything that does not belong. Where it is, the way it is, is an open loop pulling on your attention.
