    Thanks. I've recently cleared out a lot of clutter from my home which felt great. I guess I could try it with my lifestyle too. The thing is, as I remove unimportant next actions from my lists, I'm afraid they might just go back into my psyche and clog it up. But I'll give it a go, and I'll check out that book too.

      So make a separate list or section for Someday/Maybe stuff that I really can't even think about now but will revisit in 6 months" or some equally descriptive term and dump everything there.

      That way your brains won't worry you've "lost" something but you are free to deal with what you can realistically do now.

GTD doesn't really place much emphasis on minimlising rather the emphasis is on managing it all.
        I think this is they key "Less is more"
        The practice of Kanban is a methodology that predates GTD but applies some of the same principles. It acknowledges your inventory of stuff and makes it visible with post it notes in three columns, backlog, in progress and done. A central belief to Kanban is that increased throughput makes for more successful work. Less items in progress limits multitasking and complexity. This to me is key success factor in having fun, whether I am working or playing

          I actually found once I reached peak levels of minimalism in my life it kind of eradicates the need for a complex productivty system like gtd.

          I still like to use key gtd elements but I hardly need a system to be honest.
