Postmaster in a small town. Sorry, I thought I had replied, was surprised to check back & find I had not. GTD is really helping me keep on top of the paperwork & the other duties I have, especially because I have taken on some projects that take me outside my office.
My job may be different. It so often seems that rather than being proactive I must be reactive to what is happening. Too many outside influences seem to adversely affect my ability to "get things done".
In my case it means that to varying degrees I'm a sysadmin, database admin, backup responsible, software developer and support technician. It's a varied job obviously, but sometimes you get stretched just a little too thin.
I've been getting started on GTD for about a year, and the recent two months have been pretty good - to the level where I actually feel that I'm "doing GTD". Hopefully the higher altitudes of planning will help out with trying to focus ahead a little more on my different areas of responsibility.
I wear two hats simultaneously. I am an accountant/tax preparer and also sell capital equipment used in hospitals and biomedical research. The demands of the two separate businesses constanly pull me in opposite directions throughout the day. GTD has helped me to keep things on track and prevent various unrelated projects from falling through the cracks. Since starting GTD, I believe it has added thousands of $ to my income and has given me a much better level of comfort that things are under control, although I'm still constantly working to refine my system and make it work better for me. I still play the GTD FAST cd's from time-to-time to refresh myself on key points.
I am a Computer Systems Manager (ala Network Administrator) for a small local municipality in Alabama . I have been GTD'd for a little over a year. Just recently started a website about it with a friend of mine (see below). Has gotten me to re-think a lot of things in my system and I am working on a total revamp right now. I will detail the process on Black Belt Productivity starting tomorrow.
I am a freelance indexer and colored pencil artist, and have many other interests (has anyone read Refuse to Choose by Barbara Sher??). I work from home and struggle to choose one thing at a time to work on without getting distracted. GTD is wonderful!
