Hi and Getting Things Done (GTD) question
Never posted here before... maybe it's just another way for me to procrastinate. ;) Then again, maybe some folks with experience can help me. Found my way here via the procrasination book on wikipedia and was looking at the article on time bingeing and thought it fit me to a great extent. Actually, for me I think the issue is a combination of procrastination and escapism... they always seem to go together for me. It's a chicken/egg scenario. I might try the bookending thing too... I kind of do that myself sometimes but with no audience, there is no sense of accountability.
Now too, I was wondering whether any of you had any thoughts on the GTD book. I read it 6+ months ago and was following many of his suggestions but fell off the wagon after 2-3 months. The thing is, I was accomplishing more but I constantly felt like even though I was doing more, I was also constantly stressing about the things that weren't getting done. I also felt like I was getting lots of little items checked off at the expense of the big picture. It got to the point that I almost refuse to look at my PDA because it makes me sick to see all 3 million things I need to do in one place. :barf: I couldn't really concentrate on where I was or what I was doing because there were so many other things I felt like I should ALSO be doing.
Has anyone else had this feeling after working with the book? Any ideas or comments on how to deal with this?
Ok, now I am going to work for a half hour on this problem at work that has me totally stuck. I really don't want to but here I go...
