I'm a freelance editor and often take on more work than I have capacity for. I came into GTD last year and was really enthusiastic about it because it was helping me to get lots of things done. Lately, however, I've had so many projects going on that I was beginning to lose sight of things and was panicking because I felt that I wasn't in control any longer. I've gone back to making a weekly mindmap so now have a "picture" of what I have to do and that seems to suit me best. The only GTD item that's still working for me is my Tickler which is a godsend keeping me up to date with appointments and meetings. Just wanted to share this - mindmaps and the Tickler work best for me.
No announcement yet.
mindmapping suits me better
