GTD and job search
I was laid off late last week due to budget cuts. I was working for a non-profit that assists people who are doing job search. And now I find myself looking for a job. The previous week I was on vacation using that time to start fully implementing GTD. Now the lay off seems to be a mixed blessing. It seems like I have much more to do than when I was employed. Dr. Martin Luther King originally used the phrase "The fierce urgency of now" in has famous "I Have A Dream" speech. I fully understand those words. Since my employer was a faith-based non-profit agency, I cannot receive unemployment benefits. My severance pay was minimal. The bottom line is that I need to find employment in my field ASAP. I am sad and somewhat scared. At the same time, I am also feel like I am on track with my job search and optimistic. People are finding employment and there are jobs out there. This is all happening, of course, in a very difficult economy. The lay off was only four days ago and it is amazing how many next actions that are associated with job search. Some examples:
* Go online and update resume
* Send resume on 9/20 to D... T...... at XYZ Company
* Go to barber and get hair cut
* Take suit(s) to dry cleaners
* Call P... G..... to get okay to use as reference
That is all for now...
