Help! I've been away and am returning to GTD.
Somewhere along the line, I lost my way with GTD. I think I never properly set up my "system". While I always believed GTD was the right approach, it just never worked for me. After trying too many methods to mention, I've made the decision to come back to GTD.
My challenge is that I want to set up the proper system. At work, we use Outlook for all email and calendars. I also use Toodledo. I also use paper. A problem for me is that I feel as if my organization is too spread out. Away from the office, I use an ipad that has DGT to link to Toodledo.
I think I have failed to stay dedicated because my basic setup was never complete. I have done a decent job of weekly reviews but find I always focus on the newer stuff and lose sight of older, ongoing projects.
When I do my capturing, I try to think of every step in a project to start. Perhaps, because of my set up, I don't label these properly. I tend to list Next Action for multiple steps in the same project.
I've been reading the forums and scanning my David Allen books for tips.
Pardon my rambling but I'm really seeking advice on how to setup a system and properly capture my Next Actions.
