You most likely need to realise the power of less, begin to edit your life and minimalise all but the essential things
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.
You most likely need to realise the power of less, begin to edit your life and minimalise all but the essential things (it takes weeks if not months to create a minimalist lifestyle but its worth it, a good book to read is "the power of less"). 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
