  • GTD itself

    At what level would reading, and starting, GTD be? 20.000 feet?

    Hmm, very meta question.
    Setting up GTD, as in reading the book, setting up the boxes for your actions, and going through the first setup process, would be a project. Once you are set up, you tick the box.
    Maintaining that system and developing habits is more a 20.000 if not higher thing. Being organised, with whatever system, is definitely an area in life one needs to keep on top of. Getting black belt at GTD is usually a very long term goal, think a few years to get really good at it.

      Personally I think reading and starting GTD is a project.

      This project may be driven by higher-level outcomes. It really depends on what level you were contemplating when you realized that "Start GTD" became something you were commited to doing.

      For me it was a 20K thing - wanting to stay on top of my commitments at work and being sick of letting things slip through the cracks - that drove me to start GTD.

        Since I got into "getting more done / getting more to be done" cycle using other methods, putting GTD on was, for me, a matter of survival... and I guess I have my Pareto's "80% result" with the "20% effort" I spent, so... I may not need all those years!

        Thanks Linada and mackiest!
