I am a firm believer in GTD. I talk the talk but I don't always walk the walk.
I have outlook configured as described in the GTD And Outlook whitepaper. My Projects and Next Actions are in there, with the appropriate context. My blackberry syncs with outlook so I have remote access to my calendar and Tasks/ToDos.
My problem is that, when things get hectic-- which is a weekly ocurrance in my job-- I drop all this, grab a piece of paper, and make an old fashioned list of things to do.
This week, I noticed that each day, I created a new paper to-do list, copying incomplete items from the day before. I accomplished a lot of what I needed to this week, probably because the to-do list was in my face, driving me to work towards completion. This habit is probably a leftover from my days with a Franklin Planner (re-write your to-dos each day).
Ultimately, my GTD list falls behind, or I simply don't look at it for several days while I work off of this paper list.
Does anyone else have this type of problem? Any suggestions for making my GTD list more transparent? I feel like the crux of this problem is that pencil and paper is easy for me to work with, while I have a mental block about going into my outlook task list to add items or mark them complete.
