There's one and a half month now that I'm trying to apply GTD, I have already failed a lot of times and got back again but I began thinking differently on how to approach it. I think I need to establish this big habit by starting small, and making small improvements. I have this idea from articles I have read in the past for building habits plus this article: http://gettingthingsdone.com/2017/04/10-tips-for-success-with-gtd/ Also I searched about this and found a system similar to GTD which uses such strategies(ZTD). For example I can have a daily habit for processing in tray by starting small like 5 minutes and making tiny improvements. I can start by adding 10 seconds every day. By adding 10 seconds per day in 3 months the habit would reach 20 minutes. At this stage I can increase the growth rate by 10 seconds to 20 seconds. In 45 days the habits is going to reach 35 minutes. At this point again I can increase the growth rate to 30 seconds. In one month it'll be at 50 minutes. I don't think I need to increase the minutes even more from here, I believe that these are already a lot for me and maybe I'm going to stop at 30 minutes since I don't have too much to process every day and my next actions are around 25-30 I guess. EDIT: I forgot to mention that I will process 100% of the content of in-tray during weekly review. But for the other days I want to stick to this program I've written. About capturing I don't think I need to create it a habit since I am already comfortable with it. For Weekly Review instead of saying I am always going to do it every Friday for every week from now on, I can just schedule the next one, and when I've done that I book the next one(instead of focusing at reaching the top of the mountain which is very overwhelming, focus for now on the next 50 metres.) Also if I see that using this strategy I still have problems doing the weeekly review I can do it every 10 days for now for it to be less overwhelming. For reviewing my lists habit I can set a habit of always reviewing my next actions, waiting for, calendar each morning and night at least. I was already doing that so I am more comfortable with it. Also I tried in the past to look every day quickly at all of my projects and be sure that each one has next actions and I think that's a good behavior to continue doing. Ok, you get the idea, that's just a simple plan of how I'd like to approach GTD. In the book I've read that David says that GTD can easily take 2 years before it's a habit. I think by having such a plan by starting small, GTD can become a habit quicker and with less failures. Also that's a better way to tackle such a big habit and habits in general, it makes the process much less stressful. What do you think? Has anyone else incorporated similar strategies in his GTD journey?
