Does anybody else struggle with 'leftovers' in the inbox at day's end? I've got my tickler set up and have entered a reminder in Outlook to check it every day and that part of GTD is working for me.
After I implemented my system and got my Outlook GTD friendly, I was really pumped! But after using it fully for a week, my enthusiasm is still there but discouragement is trying to settle in because:
1. I have yet to have a clean inbox at the end of the day. I seem to always bite off more than I can chew.
2. I've been getting next actions done and the feeling of accomplishment is wonderful, but one of these from Friday that took up a major chunk of time (scanning over my receivables and deciding who gets what action - statement, phone call or reminder letter), did not get completed Friday (nor did my weekly review!) and now here it is Monday a.m. and my inbox has leftovers from Friday and the receivables project I was working on is sitting on my desk.
I figure I must have missed a relatively crucial step but I'm a GTD newbie and really can't afford to pause and go back and read through the book again.
Does anyone have any advice or insights as to where I'm falling off the wagon?
