My first time
Hi all, I've just joined. I'm a 56 year old doctor, working full-time (but fortunately not out-of-hours) and caring for my disabled husband and three cats. I started a new job in January after 20 years in the previous one. This has involved moving 170 miles from London to South Yorkshire. The job's great but any hope I had that starting with a clean slate would help me not procrastinate has gone out of the window - 10 weeks in, and I've got an embarrasing backlog of reports to write.
I've been using Getting Things Done to help me get organised at work, and at least now I know what I need to get done - it's the next step that's the problem. And it's even worse at home e.g. I've got a pile of papers where I need to send them our change of address, an overdue income tax return (witha £100 fine already due), and cat hair everywhere as I hate doing the cleaning.
Finding this website has made me realise that it's not just me being lazy. I know I'm a perfectionist, and a chornic demand resister. I also know some of the reasons why I'm like this. I'm hoping that I can use this great resource to try and break the vicious cycle.
with best wishes from the UK
