Hoarders and Procrastination

I watched the TV show “Hoarders” at the recommendation of people who thought I, ahem, shared some characteristics with these people and their pathological accumulation of useless crap. Ahem. I guess it all comes down to degrees. Some time back I have identified the root cause of practically every problem I have as procrastination. This […]

The Rev. Dan Tripp sent me mail about this Mozilla plugin that will turn GMail into an engine for GTD. It’s called, appropriately enough, GTDGMail. It looks pretty cool, although I don’t think it will work for me. I made the decision that I wanted an offline solution but for those of you who are […]

GTD, my Write-Only Database

I had the same reaction as Susan Kitchens did when I heard David Allen tell Merlin Mann that it takes two years to really get the GTD system internalized. At once I thought “Damn, that’s a long row to hoe” and also “Alright, perhaps my screwing up the first three months isn’t so devastating!” I’m […]

My GTD Failings

We are now into my third month of GTD. To assess where I am at realistically, I would have to say that it has not been a complete failure, but neither has it been much of a success. My results are on the bubble at this point. I use my Hipster PDA and have been […]
