Ideas from books, articles & podcasts.
We often feel overwhelmed when we have too many tasks floating around in our heads. One way to calm that feeling of anxiety is to follow productivity guru David Allen's advice: You really should capture your open loops.
An open loop is any kind of commitment or task that's hanging around your life, but you haven't been able to deal with it. The birthday gift you need to send, that idea you had about a community garden, your desire to visit the pyramids.

Open loops act as a drag on your attention. It pops up at the wrong time, or leave you worried that there's something you're forgetting.
Select an app, or open a text file, or use a physical notebook, and dump every open loop that you can think of in one place, not in multiple apps. Add new items as soon as they float into your mind.
