Too many to-do's in different places
Hello, nice to be reaching out for some support and knowing there are other folks as interested in GTD as I am. I'm in a bit of a pickle...the past few weeks I've been setting up the GTD system, listening to webinars on GTD connect and adding to-do's to lots of lists. Lists such as someday/maybe, errands, calls, online, and various inboxes (iphone, evernote). Now I have lots of lists. I named a few projects and put a few next actions on them.
Apparently, I have skipped a step....now that I have a better sense of the overall picture, it looks like I've been doing a mind sweep in many different places. Instead of having one list of unprocessed to-do's....I have added next actions to many different lists.
If this is making sense, would anyone have an idea about how to combine all this and move forward in the GTD way, or in another simple fashion? It seems like I have doubled my work and need to start over. I'm guessing that I now need to gather up all of these next steps and put them in one big list then go through them in the GTD way, asking myself what requires a next action, etc. Do I have that right?
I look forward to your feedback. I put a lot of work into this and would like to stay encouraged about the benefit.
