"ADOS" and help with GTD
A friend of mine told me that he did not have ADD he had ADOS which stands for "Attention Deficit- "OH SHINY!" Which is definitely me as well. I bought the GTD book over a year ago and was able to pick up some great tips that I have integrated into my daily life. Most importantly my email organization.
However, I am having a lot of problems actually getting things done so I was hoping for some advice. I work as a creative at an ad agency and don't have any problems in work related scenarios because I have other people managing projects etc. My problem is that I have a million ideas for side projects and separate business ventures but I am never able to really focus on one of them long enough to finish them - Classic ADOS. Obviously, GTD can't solve everything but I was looking for some pointers or best practices advice from other people.
My Set up:
Things for Mac
Iphone with Things
Ical for dates.
Here is where I need help:
1. Techniques for using the system on a regular basis. I used to have a daily alarm set up then I just started ignoring the alarm. Right now I am going back to that but any suggestions on other techniques for creating reminders would be helpful.
2. Reminder alerts. From what I understand GTD isn't about creating dates, but I really need a way to remind me that a specific task is do. I am probably going to start using To Dos in iCal but if anyone has a better suggestion let me know.
Thank you very much in advance,
