What is the Focus list?

I have some questions about the focus list below:

  • What is the focus list is for?
  • How does it work?
  • How can it help me?
  • Is the focus list detailed in the Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity book?

Thank you.

With the focus list you can choose what you want to focus on.
It’s also used to implement the GTDish deferring of items but it’s not purely GTD but it’s good helper when your lists get to long and it’s possible to implement your bring forward file.
You should also read Scheduling | Everdo Help

Additionally the focus list is used to implement the start and the due date functionality. When the start date hits, the item is moved from scheduled to next with a star. So if you look at the focus list you won’t miss items that reach the start date or are due.
