Reading GTD

I was so compelled that I went to Borders earlier this afternoon to buy “Getting Things Done” by David Allen. I’m in chapter 3, and very impressed with what I’m learning so far.

  1. Have you finished the book? How is it treating you? I might have to pick something like this up. Over the past few years I’ve gotten lazy. I used to get so much done, but don’t know where all of my motivation went. Maybe I need a GTD system.


  2. Well, it’s only been five days into it. However, I’m pretty committed – I actually bought the materials he suggested! (Well, except the file cabinet. I still have to deal with hanging file folders because that’s what my desk has. Hopefully Freecycle or Craigslist has something small for cheap/free.)

    I will say that I felt very accomplished yesterday. At work when I was doing my “projects”, I wasn’t thinking about everything except the task at hand. Why? Because I’ll get to the other stuff when I process my inbox. I was able to focus much better. Despite five hours of sleep, I wasn’t dragging.

    You should get it. If you can wait, get it used from somewhere. $10.20 at Amazon + shipping? Borders has it for $15+tax. Or you can borrow it from a library (if they have it). I’d purchase it so you can refer to it from time to time.

    Don’t worry, I’ll post about my GTD journey… 🙂
