Getting Things Done

I spent the last three days reading this book, cover to cover, and then digging right in to begin implementing his ideas.

Basically, he says that everyone needs a place to dump all their mental to-do lists, plans, cogitations, wishes and dreams, out of their head and into the written word. That will free up a lot of time and mental energy for creativity.

I had to hack through quantities of rather boring info meant for the business world, but what remained was very helpful to me in my home world. I’m still working on emptying all my ideas, plans and thoughts into list form; more keep coming back to me as I work. But when I am finished I expect to have a binder full of my future. And I won’t be worrying that anything is falling through the cracks!

  1. For me at my age, 66, what is doable is important. FlyLady says clean one shelf in the refrig. That I can do. Then she says something like "You are not behind. Just pick up here." Love that. You are so organized it seems that it will be interesting how you apply list making. Maybe it will be like a FlyLady Control Journal.

  2. Sounds good, though I suspect your entire future won't cooperate fully. But at lest you have a target.
