I wanted to get your take on what I've started doing with my GTD system.
When I first started using GTD, I was just trying to juggle too many balls at once. I had so many projects and actions in my lists that I had a very hard time deciding what to do next or what to focus on.
So, this is what I've done. I've imposed a limit on my projects and actions list. I won't allow myself to have more than 20 open projects going at once. This way I can stay focused on this small group of projects and see them through to the end (as opposed to bouncing back and forth between 100+ different projects, making some headway on all of them but never finishing things!).
I also have a list of "Emergency" projects and actions, where I will allow myself to write down new things that come up that absolutely cannot wait.
I have to say, that the results thus far have been *much* better for me. In the past I've just tried to do too much at once and haven't accomplished anything! Now I am getting things done and not stressing myself out with too much on my table.
Adapting the normal GTD system to force me do this more has helped a lot.
But, does anyone have feedback on doing things this way? Good idea, bad idea? Or any insights on the issue of trying to juggle too many things at once?
