how to work everyday tasks into GTD?
I've been trying GTD for the past few weeks, and it's going pretty well so far.
Here's my question:
How do I fit tasks like paying bills, getting the dog groomed, buying groceries, etc. into the system? These things that happen every week or so are not really 'projects', are they?
I am wondering the same thing...
and beyond that I have numerous tasks that are actions every single day. It doesnt make sense to keep adding them as actions to be completed and then as soon as it's completed it would need to be re-added as an action again.
Thanks for asking this question and hopefully we'll get some answers soon.
"I'm not stupid to have to read the manual..."
That's exceptional! I know very few people that read appliance manuals. The others just keep trying and experimenting and then complain about the poor quality of devices. If you tell them to read the manual first they will always answer that they are not stupid, they have no time, the manual is unreadable and the appliance should be easy to use and foolproof.

Must admit, I didn't used to. I've been converted. A friend convinced me to treat things with care and maintain them. Sure enough, things work better and longer. Live and learn! I do remember that in the early days of imported electronics in the US, the manuals were unreadable. But they have gotten much better.
