It sounds like a stupid joke, but I’ve had a copy of Getting Things Done for just under two years now, and I’ve never made the time to sit down and read it. I started on my lunch Friday and continued today. I went in kind of half-skeptical of the whole thing, but I think I’m sold early on. The basic idea of breaking everything in your life that you want to happen into manageable and doable tasks just makes sense. I know I have too many failed to-do lists full of things like “clean house” or “finish project” that are just not defined enough to sit down and do or even know when you are done. I’m looking forward to reading this book, and then maybe digging through the Merlin Mann recommendations for packages that implement the system. I need one to be portable enough to remain accessible through my home, work and offline life so that might be a trick.
