[QUOTE=leebo;105058Can I get some tips on what to do next? [/QUOTE]
Grab a stack of smallish scrap paper, say 1/4 of a letter sheet or the backs of cartoon a day calendars. Make some time, about an hour where you will focus on this task.
Sit down and write on the scratch paper, one thought to a page, absolutely everything you think you need to do, every thing you can think of that you wanted to do,and everything related to fixing something you keep forgetting. Basically do a huge mind sweep. Use the guided mind sweep from GTD connect for ideas. I think you can sign up for a 2 week trial and see it.
Then another day, but ideally within a day or 2 of the mind sweep gather your pile of papers with ideas and sort them into logical categories.
This is then the start of both your projects list and your next actions. SOme of the notes will become projects. Decide if you need to do them no or not. If not put those notes into a folder marked Someday/Maybe. If yes then write the project name on your projects list and decide what the next action is. If you have clear contexts for some of your items (only in town, only on the computer with Internet, only phone during business hours) great, those become your first contexts and you can start putting your actions into those lists.
If you want to stay with paper, then look up how to set up a paper GTD system, again on Connect. If you plan to go electronic then create a project "Find an acceptable GTD list manager". Notice I did not say a perfect list manager, There isn't a perfect one. Your choices will be limited by what electronic tools you have at your disposal. Spend a reasonable amount of time looking at the options, pick one and start. I can almost guarantee that you will change it at some point but the big factor is get started. For example, if you know you will have hundreds of projects, lead a very complex life with lots of different contexts and use a mac then I'd suggest Omnifocus, even though it has a large learning curve. Someone with more modest needs may be happier with something else. In any case start somewhere and make Refining your GTD practice" an area of focus or at least a project.
GTD is a process, it takes years to get comfortable with it. So first, get the ideas out of your head and onto paper or into an electronic system, then decide what ones you will focus on and create next actions.
