I’ll be the first to admit that my recent jump into the Getting Things Done system was a false start. I’ve probably even done worse than average lately, despite trying to keep up with things via the Hipster PAA. A major contributor to that is that since the death of Gracie, I honestly don’t give a shit about much. Whether things do or don’t get done, so what? We’re still in the lonely house without our puppy. I know that this will shake off eventually, but until it does I feel like I’m treading water in life.
I do know that I need to get back on the stick. All the motivations that prompted me to want to begin GTD in the first place are still there and more present than ever. I honestly want to be super productive and on top of things, and I know the delta between where I am and that goal is relatively small. This will require digging a little deeper, like that sprint at the end of a long run when you don’t feel like you have anything else to push with but you push harder anyway. Let me channel the voice of Neil Melillo my old football coach – “Push, you lazy bastard, push!”
