I’m pretty happy with my GTD system so far as next action lists are concerned – everything is pretty much in order there now.
All I keep in my next actions lists is the things I’d like to or must complete this week – that prevents my lists from looking too overwhelming.
The rest is in my someday maybe or my projects categories.
That’s all fine – now I can see what I have to do but I’m just struggling finding the time to do anything.
Once my working day is over I travel home and spend time with my family doing all of the regular day to day things like preparing the evening meal, eating, clearing away, spending an hour with my son before putting him to bed etc.
After all this is done I feel I have no time left to complete my next actions.
Now I’m certain I can’t be the only person who finds little time to complete next actions. After all, I’m sharing these responsibilities with my wife and yet still I find myself stretched, how single parents cope is a mystery to me!
I’d love to hear how others manage to find the time in the week to complete next actions outside of the working day.
