There are a lot more constructive things I could write about (I actually have a growing list of stuff), but I occasionally read a post from someone trying to implement GTD that blows my mind… I’m talking about the people who have a to do list like:
- Paint my nails
- Feed the cat
If that is all you have to worry about in a given day and you need a time management system to relieve stress, then you need professional psychiatric help. When your list of next actions exceeds 500 and conservative time estmates puts it at 3 years of work, then I’ll start to sympathize.
Sorry to pee in anyone’s corn flakes, but maybe if someone tells these people they have nothing to be stressed about, they’ll wake up and realize it.
