New job and GTD
I will be starting a new job soon. I will remain in the accountancy profession at a senior managerial level. I will try to arrange things so that I have an interval of a week between jobs. I intend to re-read GTD in full over this week in order to ensure that I implement it properly in my new post.
The first time I read GTD, I was caught in a snowdrift of stacks and piles and toppling in-trays. I will never forget the liberating experience of applying the process in order to identify all of the open loops, and nail down the project descriptions and next actions by category.
But in the new job I will begin with zero open loops. Obviously I will use GTD principles to keep track of work as it starts to build up. But my question is: have any of you experienced GTD users out there ever found yourselves in a start off situation like his, and more particularly, were there any peculiarities associated with using GTD in such a situation?
