Handholding thread for GTD 101?
Brand new. I have scanned through topics, and many look very valuable. But I'm not at that level. Does this forum have a thread or subforum or something else that might be of use specifically to people just getting started?
I have read GTD three times and have envisioned putting it into practice. I have read many self-help books having to do with organization and avoiding procrastination. I actually got David Allen's book about four or five years ago, but through a series of events I managed to misplace it and forget about it. This may not have been all bad; it allowed me to read and try other books, systems, and so forth, and get some ideas about why they weren't working and what was wrong with me. When I rediscovered and then read Allen's book, I felt like I had finally found someone who understood how my brain works. I also enjoyed his straightforward, no-nonsense style -- not exactly terse, but generally using as many words as needed to describe the ideas, and not many more.
So clearly, the book itself serves as the inital introduction/handholding tool. But as I tentatively experiment, I'm getting ready to dive in and commit myself to this new way of processing choices and life events. Having a checklist or a friend or an idea of what I'm going to encounter and how things look as I start the journey seems like it would be very helpful. If you can point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.
