I have a few friends who really took off with GTD, and continue to use it for over a year now, while I struggle to apply it regularly.
I was recently reading about Honey and Mumford learning styles, and realized that my friends and I have completely different learning styles.
Go ahead and read this page on learning styles before continuing:
I was shocked to see just how dead on "Activist" describes me, while my friends more closely resemble "Pragmatists".
The biggest problem I have as an activist is being "...open minded and enthusiastic about new ideas but get bored with implementation"
I am never able to finish anything. I start running with a new idea, but shortly after get bored and look for a new solution.
My question is, how do other activists deal with this issue? Do you find yourself often running with a new idea, just to get bored and never finish it?
I can usually come back to a project 3-6 months later (which is why I'm looking at GTD again), and continue the project with renewed curiosity, but that's impractical for deliverables. I would like to grab onto something that works (GTD) and stop messing around.
