GTD and constant anxiety about missing something
I've been doing GTD for about 3-4 years now, read the book several times and did my best to implement the system. I consider myself a successful person relative to my peers, thanks, in a large part, to GTD. It is wonderful to be able to set high-level, year-long goals and then actually creating a workable plan and seeing it through until the very end, while keeping balance across all areas of life.
However I am rarely in the "mind like water" state. Instead, I'm constantly anxious that I have not collected something. I'm constantly trying to picture my whole life and trying to see how my activities in a given moment fit into this picture. Sometimes I consciously know that something (such as an Outlook appointment reminder) is completely insignificant, yet my brain continues to nag me about it until I have thought it through completely to validate that it is, indeed, insignificant. I get painful stabs of fear about missing something that should be in my system. It feels like the perfectionism inherent in GTD has triggered a mild case of OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder).
All this angst wastes a tremendous amount of mental capacity and is very disconcerting. I know that I _should_ be feeling organized, clear about life goals and harmonic, instead I'm happy but tormented by anxiety.
What gives? Anyone having similar feelings?
