Hi all Ok I've been trying GTD for a while now, although I'm not yet sure that it works for me because I often spend more time organise my 'system' than I do actually being productive. Organising my lists into statuses such as next action, on hold, etc doesn't work because the next actions just end up sitting there for all eternity, and this is why I'm thinking of ordering by ordering by AoF instead. Make a fresh start and see how it goes. I've not given up yet though. 2 questions I'd like to ask to clarify: 1) does every single task have to have an area of focus? Some tasks such as "set up uber account" or "sort out permissions on Android" don't really fit into any particular AoF. 2) Shouldn't the Areas of Focus be ABOVE goals? Surely goals are derived from the AoF. For example, if AoF could be "household" and a goal could be "ensure house is kept tidy", It would seem strange if "ensure house is kept tidy" is above "household".
