Yep, Roger, you still have to do the doing. GTD just makes the doing a lot more doable.
So, I hate shredding. It's loud and time-consuming and should be left to the professionals. And it's on my project list.
So here's how I tricked myself into doing it:
Next action: Move shedder to family room.
That's it. No other expectations. My next action after that would be to pull out all of the full sheets I'd stuffed into it's big cavity, and, again, that's it. No other expectations.
Break it down into tiny bites.
But here's what happened:
When I got it into the family room, well, the power outlet's right there... I'll just plug it in. "Hey, I wonder what's on Netflix... Grumpy Old Men? I love that movie!" And by the time Jack Lemmon and Ann-Margret had gotten married and Walter Matthau was on his way to the VFW dance, I was FINISHED!
So, sometimes the doing sneaks up on me. But I still have to do it, Roger.
