I am an educator who spent some time this summer planning out my system with hopes of implementing at the start of the year. It seems that every TM and GTD system talks about the need to focus and do one thing at a time. When you are working with adolescents in a school, this just does not seem to work. I start a next action and am interrupted constantly, students and colleagues dropping in, phone calls, e-mail, ... My system has turned into a bunch of post it notes all over the place and i am constantly multitasking, just what the book says not to do.
Ideas on implementing system in a very fast paced environment. Although i enjoy electronic, it seems that paper is the best way to go, but i am open to suggestions.
Thanks for your help.
