When I first started doing GTD, I was full of vigor and told friends about the system. Two of 'em (both highly successful in the biz world) scoffed at the methodology claiming it appeared stifling and overly complex. Another tried the system (he's a graphic designer) and in a few weeks reverted back to his "to do" lists.pageta said:Really? Everyone I know either doesn't manage time well or is very frustrated with how much they get done. I see people all around who could benefit so much if they implemented GTD.
Personally, I'm using a combination of Wishcraft/Sher, GTD/Allen and 7 Habits/Covey. In my life,Sher's no-nonsense and soulful approach to some of these issues wins out 70% of the time over the other two methods.
