Yeah, I agree with what Paul wrote - thanks!
For me, it gets difficult too if it's not really my own heart's desire but actually what someone else has been pushing me to do... Or if there are other emotional (or RL) obstacles..
My biggest mistake was maybe thinking if I do GTD things will magically do themselves Or that I would know which things to do, which not.. (when actually GTD is just a grid that assumes you know what to do and what not..)
I was obsessing about things like size and form of folders at first too, and about any other tools, both paper or computer etc.
The pull between what I want and what others want and what is actually possible and what to actually DO is still a big question and learning lesson for me, especially if one is going into 'new teritories', of what hasn't been done before (locally or at all), intuition and research can only get you so far sometimes.. dilemma can be 'what do I really want to commit to' and then there can be health problems or 'outside' circumstances... (like RL events or world catastrophes etc that can sorta change things like your worldview or motivation/inspiration again)
So I think a big mistake was neglecting the emotional aspect of doing things, or not acknowledging/dealing with possible obstacles in a constructive way, I could write a list and then not wanna do it.. And I didn't block off 'RELAX' time etc.
