Knitfisher's GTD project
This is my project to Get Things Done. (The book is by David Allen here)
PA helps me overcome the fear of things not done, things I avoid, things that are scary and helps me to stay on-track and avoid distraction. It gives me a safe place to discuss how I'm getting on and the small victories where I know people will understand.
I hope that GTD can help me keep track of all of those things. And by bringing them out in the open where I can see them, I will worry about them less in the subconscious. (Well that's the idea) However, putting things you'd rather forget about front and centre is difficult, and the tendency is to let the lists slide and to try and avoid those too.
GTD isn't for everyone. There's a risk you get bogged down in the organising (as with many other systems and ways of thinking) and forget that the whole point is to keep DOING and DECIDING. Also the lack of prioritisation is a worry for some. But sometimes, especially if you procrastinate, you have to concentrate on doing something, anything, because if you're always looking for the right thing to do, you might not do anything at all.
Shall we see how I get on? My minimal goal is to look at the list at least once a day this week. I worry that I will crash and burn, and give up on it like I did last time. But with the forum here and the encouragement (silent or otherwise) of my fellow PA-ers, I think I can make progress.
