Getting to What I Really Want to Do
I'm curious as to whether anyone has ever taken "time off" from their systems in order to re-calibrate and/or get back to what's really important to them? I'm looking at my first week alone in my house without my spouse in 10 years (!), and I'm thinking it would be a great time to take all the recurring reminders off my calendar (exercise, habits, projects,etc.) and just make moment-to-moment decisions about what my "inner being" feels like doing. Just to see if I can discover some new, less "forced" rhythms...
I'm not talking about a "retreat," or a purpose/values kind of conversation. I'm just noticing that I've stocked my calendar with so many recurring reminders that I'm beginning to feel like a robot! Consult calendar. Perform activity. Where's the spontaneity?!
I'm aware there are potential pitfalls to this sort of moment-to-moment living (sort of like saying I'll listen to my body and only eat when I'm hungry, thus forgoing the diet!), and yet I also believe that part of the power of GTD is its ability to support one in BEING in the present moment (with everything captured, etc.).
So...my question is...has anyone ever experimented with this sort of thing?
