5 Problems with GTD and How to Fix Them

Five problems people have with GTD from Zen To Done (ZTD) by Leo Babauta

Getting Things Done by David Allen

1. GTD is a system of habit changes all at once

Instead, focus on one habit at a time.

2. GTD doesn’t focus enough on doing

The focus is more on capturing and processing than doing.

3. GTD is too unstructured

Focus on completing tasks, in a simple, stress-free manner.

4. GTD tries to do too much

If we put everything on our lists, they end up overloaded.

5. GTD doesn’t focus enough on your goals

There is too much focus on doing whatever comes at you rather than doing what you should be doing.
