I bought GTD in paperback about a month ago and have been slowly applying the lessons in order to make my life more efficient (and reduce the middle-of-the-night stress sessions).
So far, I've done the following:
(1) Data Dump (RAM clearing)
(2) Created general referencing filing (cleaned out all of my old files, kept what I needed, discarded what I don't) - this has been a HUGE help.
(3) Label/file often
(4) Cleared through my whole in-box
(5) Implemented the 2-minute rule as much as possible.
Here's what I'm struggling with - everything else! I've put together a paper GTD system since I can't stand Outlook. I have a nice padfolio/binder with the following tabs - (1) Calendar (2) Actions (3) Projects) (4) Agendas (5) Notes
I'm using the DIY templates. Now, I have about 90 projects that require more than one step. It seems so cumbersome to have 90 pages for each project (either in paper or digitally), have to flip through them all to ID next steps, and keep updated the actions list.
I'm afraid that the process will stifle whatever semblance of productivity that I've gained in the past few weeks.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
