The title says it all! It also explains why those of us who become GTD (Getting Things Done) fanatics tend to stay that way. While a number of online postings suggest endorphins may be the cause, various psychological texts and articles are rather equivocal. Anecdotal evidence of satisfaction from completing tasks is overwhelming, so I’ll confine myself to the purely existential, empirical observation that it feels wonderful to have gotten a bunch done today. All very mundane – catching up on my inbox, cleaning off my desk, paying bills and the like – but it has been wonderful to have some time to get everything in order before the new year.
