Getting Things Done -- Not So Much

   29 June 2006, early morning

I bought OmniOutliner Pro a week or so ago, and started using Kinkless GTD to help me start getting things done. I don’t feel more organized. I think perhaps I am missing that extra little bit of organizational magic that is actually contained in the Getting Things Done book. I started typing out what I needed to do into neat little lists in OmniOutliner Pro, and then I went back to playing Warcraft and surfing on the Internet. Yesterday I got two things done that I wanted to: I finally cleaned up this huge pile of clean clothes that sit next to my bed on a side table, and I cleaned a small desk next to my computer. A nice small accomplishment. Still, the only reason I did these two things was because World of Warcraft was downloading a patch.

  1. Warcraft is evil and has little to offer for casual players in end game. I am a better healthier self since I canceled it several months ago.

  2. dude, you’re one of the most chilled out people I know. Getting excited about “getting things done” is so NOT your modus operandi.

    My GTD solution, three todo lists on tada lists : “do asap”, “do at some point”, “and “ideas”

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

 
Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
