Ever Get Burnt Out From Doing GTD?
I have to say that today was a very productive day for me. From the moment I woke up I was tackling things on my available actions list.
The only times I wasn't getting things done was when I took a break to eat, but even then I was doing some research online for a term paper.
I'm impressed with myself though at the same time exhausted. Of course the available next action list never ends...well, until I die. But that's life.
So, I'm wondering if perhaps this "Ever get burnt out from GTD?" thought is just pre-falling off the wagon..
Like you, have falling off the wagon numerous times and hate having to pull myself back up. Especially in terms of processing everything that wasn't during my downtime.
For the past week (almost time for my weekly review this Sunday) I've been productive during my days and when I come home or have 15 minutes to spare will do some processing, getting things out of my inbox and created into projects...but today, I'm spent. Not physically tired, but maybe mentally. It's 2am now for the past 2 hours have been mainly just listening to music and watching some TV; feeling as if I deserve it.
Iono, rather than me dragging this on I feel this topic/thread is more open to interpretation as i'd like to believe i'm not the only one that has felt this way.
Of course, all GTD'ers here will hopefully think: "Well, what's your successful outcome here?" & Personally I'm thinking its to continue to be productive even after being really productive. Reflecting back at the times I've falling off the GTD wagon, it's usually been after being very productive; perhaps subconsciously insinuating that I deserve the downtime after being sooo productive.
I'm all ears.
