I had another thing that I thought I should say about “Getting Things Done.” There are only 24 hours in a day. No process is going to get you around that obstacle.
A problem that I have at work is that I simply have more piled on me than I can realistically handle. Where I work, everyone seems to have that problem. We are short handed, and I don’t think that will change. I think that I do a pretty good job at dealing with the important stuff, and putting the not so important stuff away until I can deal with it. Especially given the resources that I have at my disposal (not much).
Keep in mind that there are no silver bullets when it comes to processes. David Allen’s process is pretty good, but there are still only 24 hours in a day.
