Stuck on the runway (plane won't take off!)
I've been using GTD for about a year and half now with incredible results for my everyday work. I go to work happy and eager to jump into my projects and come home happy with an empty inbox and everything organized into my trusted system. The only thing is, I've noticed that I've been doing all the immediate ground level stuff wonderfully (the stuff tasked by my supervisors and my own organization) but I don't seem to have any time leftover for my own personal and professional goals (the stuff to advance my own career and learning that I choose for myself). I even put tasks for those items in my system but without definite deadlines and consequences like I have for all my other tasks, they seem to just sit on my tasklist because I never have time to act on them. Any suggestions?
