Was it something I said? Thread went spooky quiet
Weekly Review...Daily Review... (etc.)
and have to remember "oh right I need to write down the last thing I was thinking so I know where to start tomorrow".
"isn't the point that GTD lets you stay relaxed and in control despite an enormous, never-completable work load?"
The problem is that if I don't, I will not remember the things
For us the issue is how are we going to keep getting fresh vegetables. So one task was to buy a few seed packets of open pollinated vegetables like lettuce, rocket, spinach as well as some tomatoes and a few herbs from the local feed store. Not too many, 1 pack of a bunch of different ones, and plan for some sort of a garden. Then we got 1 foot of wet spring snow. So it will be a while. For protein we are set. If we run out of the frozen meats from the farm store freezers I have a whole flock of sheep and know how to butcher one as needed. We also ahve plenty of game animals and birds. The other issue will be carbohydrates. Potatos grow well here but it will be months before any planted this spring will be ready. Not many folks plant winter wheat (which will come up first) but there is some. Hard wheat and oats are also local crops but not much and usually specialty. Ditto for barley. So flour for bread and malt to make beer (way to store wheat long term)may be in short supply locally but available from a county or 2 away.I'm also working on that "stockpile of dry staples," which up to now has been the equivalent of my Someday/Maybe list.
