Strategies for using GTD to stop stewing about an issue?
Hello! I was just wondering if other people had handy tips/tricks for using GTD methodology to get your mind off an issue.
Example: I have an employee who is wanting a raise - he's talented but the reasons he's asking for a raise are not very valid and has also recently gotten one. He is also resisting hiring an additional team member because he's worried it will affect his ability to get a raise, which I find highly frustrating. I am trying to placate him plus also make recommendations to HR. I keep stewing about it in my head - what I should say to him, what I WANT to say to him , what I should say to HR, etc. I cannot stop thinking about it and it's driving me nuts. (Can't sleep, etc.)
Has anyone used GTD to solve these kinds of issues? I'd love to put it on a piece of paper and have my brain relax, but am not sure exactly what I'd write down.
I am prone to anxiety and know that sometimes my brain gets into 'anxiety loops' where it latches on to a topic and won't let go, even if it's an unimportant topic. Anyone use GTD to help overcome this?
