Yes, it is in my bedroom. I can't wait to show you the "other" office in our house, but one thing at a time.
I have read the book nearly all the way through and this weekend I am going to begin collecting all my stuff. I don't know if I can manage to get everything collected in 2 days. I am really excited about learning and implementing GTD.
The reason my office is in the bedroom is because my partner's office is also stufffed to the gills with "stuff" (he's a CPA and we both have stacks and piles out the ying-yang).
It was gratifying for me to read in the book that this terrible habit of putting things in piles/stacks is quite common for folks who have no trusted system. I'm going to start having a trusted system! hooray!! (I'm desperate, things are starting to be really really bad! For example I had my two cats microchipped about 2 months ago but I never sent in the forms the vet gave me to send in. The forms are in a stack somewhere..so if kitties got out the door the microchip wouldn't do an ounce of good because I never filled out or sent in the form). I am ready to gain control!
It's funny, I resisted buying David Allen's book for a couple of years. I already have about 5 books on organizing. I thought.. I already read those other books (honest, I did), what could possibly be "new"? But recently I read a few entries on the 43 things website about other people excited about GTD so I bought the book. I am totally in love with that flow chart! I have a file cabinet (a good one) that I am going to find a way to get upstairs and I have nearly all the materials I need for beginning on Saturday.
I'll be documenting my progress in photos and asking advise from you seasoned vets. Is that alright?
Encouragement & suggestions gladly accepted!
