Should I start now or later?
I am new to GTD, I actually haven't even started it. I am having a problem with that and was wondering if I could get some advice from people already using the system and know how much it helps.
Here is my situation... I live in a house with my husband that we are rebuilding. I live in michigan and it is getting really cold. Currently my husband is going to school and doesnt feel like he has time to help with the house, so I am installing the ductwork for my furnace so we can have heat (right now we are relying on an electric heater for the small upstairs we are "living in" in our house), mudding the drywall so I can finish the walls and paint them, installing the siding on the outside of the house to keep heat in better and make the house look 100% better, tiling the walls of our shower so we dont have to take baths in the "cold" downstairs bathroom (since we dont heat down there right now), and hundreds of other smaller projects that aren't as important as these 4 I mentioned.
My problem is right now we have everything in one area, bed, tv, dining table, microwave, office stuff, workout equipment, all of our food, clothing, and everything we use day to day, and no place for a desk or devoted spot for an "office".
My main plan of what to do is to finish the ductwork to get heat everywhere in the house so I can finish mudding the drywall in the extra bedroom downstairs, paint it, and set it up like an office and then start using this system for the chaotic life I have.
But by then it will be to cold to do any siding on the house because it becomes very brittle in the cold and I am sure I would break it more than I would install it... AND I would be waiting another week or two to start GTD because I am not an expert on any of the work I do, I have just never been able to hire people to do things for me so I have learned how to do them and done them myself, but it takes me time.
I guess my question is do i start GTD now without making the desk area and possibly make the system work against me or just keep learning and thinking about what I am going to do when I can start it and get a starting area made first? I dont know if starting it now will help or hurt my situation. Any suggestions would be appreciated greatly!
