I have a day off from work, so I am listening to the WHOLE audio book today. I will get this into my head somehow. 17 months ago

I’ve tried it, kinda do it. Need to focus on one goal only so putting this on hold until I get my ONE GOAL: house=back to ready. simple: spend 15 minutes each afternoon tidying up the house. that’s it. for a month. nothing else. 21 months ago
How I did it: As I found out, it's nice to have some system - it just doesn't have to be pure GTD.
I admit I am lazy, so all that GTD stuff was just too much fuss. In the end, I just took inspiration from it and cooked my own planning system. Actually, two of them - for a half-year, I wrote my tasks on post-it notes and stuck them on the door. Then I would pick thee most pressing tasks for a day and move them on a highlighted place. Dead simple, but it worked. Not that I wasn't procrastinating, but I at least knew what has to be done and didn't forget stuff.
Now I am using yet another remix - a daily planner with tasks sorted by context. Contexts are good GTD idea which my door-system missed. Also, it's much more portable now! :B Read how I did it… 22 months ago
I just don’t understand how people do this. I try different things, but I alwasy have to try a new system, a better way, a differnt noteook ,etc. 23 months ago
Last week I have bought the book of David Allen “Getting things done”. Now I plan to read the book in the next 10 days and put the techniques into my daily routine. 23 months ago
Back from the dead! I’ve recently started to implement this. With the birth of my second child, a promotion at work, and basically having met most of my medium-term goals, I’m looking for some longer goals. And I don’t think I’m quite going to get there unless I get myself organized.
I’ve started using todo.txt hosted on Mark’s machine with the corresponding app. I’ve started doing weekly reviews (two, one with Robin on Sunday nights and a work-related review on Friday afternoons). I also am working on capturing my projects list.
It’s HARD. I never realized productivity would have this much thinking and refactoring involved. And yet it doesn’t seem like I’ve gained much—but I’m sure in six months I’ll look back and realized I’ve gained control of my “stuff”. 2 years ago
so, this has been a FAIL at home to date, but I will get it sorted out THIS YEAR. no. more. excuses. 2 years ago
How I did it: I realized that there is not just one system that works for me, and that if I tried too hard to organize I would just get bogged down in the bureaucracy of managing them. So my system has become one of having my important goals on 43things and updating them there, then having smaller bullet lists that I use for my weekly chores and activities. I can see I have increased my productivity in the last 12 months despite my injury and therefore I consider this goal complete. Read how I did it… 2 years ago
Adding the “March Bootcamp 2012: On the Move!” goal to my 43things has given me my first opportunity to combine other goals I have on 43things. I plan to use it as a catalyst for making progress on major goals I have and I already have had a very good start.
Needed to update here because this is my supervising goal for my “get things done” goals! 2 years ago

This morning’s plan – and it comes out to being much more than a week since review, but I’m plunging back into it! 2 years ago
I’m doing well at writing down All The Things in the right place – it’s opening the list back up that I’m working on :) 2 years ago
