When I wrote my last entry about this goal, I had just finished reading the famous Getting Things Done book. However, I’m not living what I’ve learned. It wasn’t working for me.
So isn’t 43T anymore. I don’t even remember my goals and never look at the list.
I have many to do lists and wish lists and list with plans and goals, but I never look at any of them. There are always so many new things that I can’t handle tracking the old ones, too. In consequence life is pushing me instead of me pushing life. That’s the way it is right now.
However my recent experience is that life pushes me much more effectively forward than I would be able to push life. I wouldn’t have accomplished so much, it I had limited myself to what I wanted to do. Not keeping track turned out to be really helpful. It gives mental space to actually do a few things.
The mentioned GTD book has a different approach. It tells you to move all the things in your mind to lists. So you have them in front of you instead of bothering you from the subconscious mind. But for me that attempt was a disaster. Writing lists is good. But working with them the GTD way is bad. I don’t recommend trying.
