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 (GTD) is a very popular system created by David Allen.
Here are 5 problems people can have with it and how to overcome them :).
1. GTD is a system of habit changes all at once
Instead, focus on one habit at a time.
Use proven habit-changing methods (30-day challenge, commitment, rewards, motivation hacks, etc.) to successfully adopt each habit.
2. GTD doesn’t focus enough on doing
The focus is more on capturing and processing than doing.
Block out time and remove distractions to focus on one task at a time.
3. GTD is too unstructured
Focus on completing tasks, in a simple, stress-free manner.
Plan your three most important tasks for the day and your three big rocks for the week.
Set daily and weekly routines to get more done.
4. GTD tries to do too much
If we put everything on our lists, they end up overloaded.
Focuses on taking as much stuff off your plate as possible, so you can focus on doing what’s important.
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.
Set one yearly, one monthly, and one weekly goal and make progress towards them.
These are habits from Zen To Done (ZTD).
