Meta-organizing is the art of procrastination through constantly refining your system by adding the latest pen, tweak, life_hacks, PDA, organizer, or toy.

The act of constantly revising your system means you feel occupied and busy, but your actual productivity suffers because you're always organizing, not Getting Things Done.

David Allen describes something similar to this in his book Ready for Anything (page 122) in the section "Too Controlled is Out of Control".
