    What about Christmas? Maybe you can make a hand-made present for somebody instead of buying it?

      Testeq, i wouldn't name it a yearly goal, maybe a project as maximum. You should know that as an expetienced GTDer, shouldn't you?

        Well, I think you could have "Good times for holidays" as a goal for the year (30,000 feet) in which case "Make presents for family members" is a project (10,000 feet) that is suggested by the goal. But if you have achieved all your goals for the year, maybe you could just take a nap until 2011?

          Yes, I should.

          Did I say that making a present is a yearly goal?

          I think we can fill our time doing projects and actions that don't have to be connected to any upper levels. But mcogilvie is right that making presents can be a part of "Good times for holidays" goal. Or a part of "Family" Area of Focus.

            It depends what you mean by yearly goals. Most of the things I need to do don't tie in to an annual cycle - I have a large list of projects that need to be done over varying time scales. I do have an "annual job plan" which is basically to keep my boss happy i.e. the list of development items he wants me to do, but most of my work is nothing to do with development but keeping going with the same old things I always do like seeing patients, teaching staff, keeping the department from collapsing, responding to the latest government directive.....

            And at home there's things ranging from "selling the house and moving to Yorkshire" to "sitting my computing exam next week" to "reading the books I bought last year".

            Basically I'd say that if you've run out of things to do, then find some more.
