(Not) Getting Things Done

I couldn’t have known it at the time, but I picked about the worst time possible to begin my transformation to Getting Things Done. Because of the various crises in life lately, I haven’t really been doing the reviews regularly enough to meet the minimum needs of the system. When that part gets dropped, you end up with an elaborate way to collect together the things you will neglect into meaningfully ignored buckets. I’m going to try to keep the basics of the system from flying apart from centrifugal force while I limp along with this. The Hipster is still here, gathering data but it is desperately in need of a good chunk of review attention.

One thought on “(Not) Getting Things Done”

  1. Coincidentally, I’m in the process of starting over on GTD at this very moment. I’ve cleared out all of my Next Actions and I’m re-brainstorming projects. From there, I’ll step down into each project and re-brainstorm my actions and goals. It is quite the therapeutic excercise to just dump it all out of my brain. Foruntately, I’ve kept the minimal systems going, so the whole initial collection thing isn’t necessary.
