A man with brains and a shovel

A blog about goals and obstacles, motivation and procrastination, life's random events and getting things done.

Getting Things Done

Discovering David Allen's "Getting things done" principles was a revelation and I used to love my OmniFocus.

Currently it is a reminder of all the broken promises and stale projects that accumulated over the last two years. I haven't done a weekly review in months and every time I start, I find a welcome distraction and procrastinate that.

GTD is supposed to be my one trusted system where I can place my tasks and complete them later on. The desolation that was once my well kept project list can not be trusted. That's why paper is stacking up on my desk, I start writing things on legal pads and worst of all, my e-mail-inbox currently holds more than 200 entries.

How did this happen? How can I pull myself out of this swamp by my bootstraps and be the leader and manager my company and family need me to be?
