Thanks to everyone for the warm and supportive welcome. Yes, I am very stressed, but have always been a bit high-strung (thinking it helped me get more done, which is not true at all I have found!).
I did start using some of the tactics and methodology that I have read about so far and it seems to be going okay. I have actually gotten quite a few more things done (well at a more rapid pace than usual) today. Remembering the system and how to work with it has hung me up a bit, but I think with learning anything new that will happen. However, I see the benefits already. I am a bit overwhelmed with all the things I have on my lists and all the projects that I have. However, I am very aware that due to my own lack of organization before now, things have just piled and piled up because I either got behind on them, or was just avoiding writing them down bc then the reality of the situation could not be denied! But, I am well aware that this is simply a manifestation of being so far behind before this point. Getting caught up is going to be a challenge, but using the GTD method will not only ensure that I will get caught up, but will accmplish this much quicker than I had ever thought possible!
Thanks again and I will consider GTD connect in the next couple of days! Have a great day everyone!
