Yeah pretty much. I don't like flipping pages when I am trying to get things done--maybe it is partially a holdover from the old style ToDo lists.you are using some contexts like Agendas, Errands and Waiting For. So, other than those, you keep all your next actions together?
I will have to think more about what contexts would be left, but all I can think of at the moment would be @phone, @computer, and maybe a separate for @internet, but since at home I have access to all 3 and when I am out, I have no computer, it just doesn't seem worth having another list. I will have to hunt up my previous incarnations and see if I am missing any contexts.
Yes and no. When I actually sat down and DID it, it wasn't hard to complete but I just often didn't feel like I needed to since I wasn't having problems getting things done. Those successful at GTD really seem to value their weekly reviews and I just didn't. I really value my family meetings and weekly reviews together with hubby, but I just didn't value it the same way when it was me meeting with me about what I was trying to get done.You also mentioned that you had a hard time completing your weekly review when you first tried to implement a GTD system.
A big part of the reason I didn't try harder with GTD is because things weren't/aren't falling through the cracks. My system is working well enough to get the stuff done that NEEDS to be done with the natural drawback that my head is always full of 'stuff' instead of being like water. My main goal in doing this is to get runway things out of my head so that I can work on the areas of my higher focus which is where I feel there has been some lack over the last year.
I spend so much time doing and tracking 'stuff' that some of my big goals/projects aren't getting sufficient attention. I really want to work hard this year on seriously expanding my Spanish, entertaining a lot more, working out more & helping my parents who are starting to hit an age where they can't keep up their home alone.
We don't want to grow the business. It is providing well for us as is and any more work would require extra employees and we've decided against that headache at least for now. I spent a lot of time setting up business systems this year, so that is mostly set barring a huge shift in our client needs. This year I want to focus on personal and family goals.
Thanks for your thoughtful questions!
On the plus side, I cleared out my physical inbox before bed last night, and probably 80% of the electronic one too
