"Getting Things Done," a book written by David Allen, emphasizes that people cannot focus on bigger goals unless they are able to accomplish their tasks on a day-to-day basis. He proposes the development of a system that defines and clarifies a regular day, inclusive of work and personal time, to help reduce clutter in the mind and focus on larger things. The ideal situation is where a person has created enough space to make his mind as clear as 'water.' This will help develop perspectives on the following 'six horizons of focus.'
1. Current projects.
2. Current actions.
