Since looking at GTD and beginning to get on top of it, I've done a lot of soul searching and realised that one of the possible reasons that I get 'blocked' so often in creativity/productivity/and in essence GTD, is that I'm not happy with my 'contexts'. What I mean by this is that I'm having problems with working from home - that I'm 'over it' and so often get stuck if I"m not with a client and supposed to be doing research, admin etc - I procrastinate to the extreme because I dont feel as if I am in a 'workplace'. My office is in the middle of the living area and there is no alternative. Long story short is that I've made the decision to locate my business papers and files to an office that I can share for little/no rent and I"m happy with that idea. I've been thinking though about how does this work with weekly reviews? My life is pretty much 50/50 work and household/family duties - how do people deal with reviewing all areas of their lives? Do they do a separate review at the office because that is where all the 'stuff' is and a separate one at home?
I have been procrastinating doing the reviews STILL and I know that's one of my barriers to success - I blocked out time to do them, but found every excuse in the sun, or sometimes I would not do the review but process my in boxes and then feel a bit better - the only thing is I"m still in chaos after some personal life issues that 'got in the way' and I feel I can't really do a successful review until I find all the stuff buried in the tray... bit of a vicious circle really. Every time I try to attack my in tray mountain I only get quarter down then have to stop and it all gets messed up again.
Need help but most likely just need self discipline...
