Applying GTD at Home

Michael Sampson - Currents

I've been a devotee of David Allen's GTD approach to making things happen since the late 1990s, but mainly for my professional work. I have defined some projects and next actions on the personal and home front, but it hasn't been until this Christmas holiday time that I've clued in to GTD at home. The biggest weaknesses in my implementation of a GTD system for non-professional things though, is a lack of portability with a mobile device.

PhD recovery plan

I don’t have a recipe here, but the things that work for me are much closer to FlyLady approach than to GTD , taking baby steps instead of sorting through everything before establishing new strategies and routines: Your home did not get dirty in one day and it will not get clean in a day either. While lots of people tend to focus on the positive side of finishing a PhD (which is, of course, a great achievement :) I feel more like the one who is just released from a prison.
