In Genesis, the Bible let us know that after getting things done, God rested on the seventh day.  In our busy lives, work and personal commitments rarely subside enough for us to rest, let alone focus on the not-so-critical stuff.  Here’s what David Allen had to say on a recent GTD Times post:

Every once in a while, schedule a day for the not-so-critical stuff. Otherwise the got-to’s can eat up your whole life, and the secondary things then become annoying got-to’s later on, or just create a frustration factor that mounts up.

David Allen

We might not get our full day of rest, but it makes sense to block out a 14th day or 21st day to knock out some of those lingering “Next Actions” that our eyes skip over, and over (and over.)
