I've been using gtd for some years now but am new to this forum.
I've really seen how using these guidelines make one more effective, but 've noticed a pattern though, of when I can't follow gtd, and would like to know how others deal with it.
For example the next action @computer, I have "install software xyz". The whole procedure is quite complex, but get there eventually, only something may happen in the lines of, complete crash, incompatibility with the other system that took a week to set up, etc... the result is one action gone wrong has added about 20 more actions to correct or take another path.
I know this is the definition of "life", but how does someone overcome this quickly. I mean, the thing that something like this brings, is more in the lines of discouragement, that I don't even wish to do anything else for the day, procrastinate or other, because what I thought would free me from one worry, has just added a myriad more.
