Remember the mess on the floor of my desk? All of that stuff preys on my mind every day. What is in there? Are there things I am supposed to be doing? Are there unpaid bills or uncashed checks? Will I find things I thought were lost forever, or will I start looking through it and then, feeling sick and angry with myself, push the piles away?
Well, now that I am implementing the Mind Organization for Moms program (a new way to implement Getting Things Done by David Allen), I will get rid of the piles and get rid of the stress. I will have everything stored in my Trusted System, so I won’t have to worry about it. I am going to corral my stuff and empty my mind into one safe location. I’ll get these ideas and goals and tasks off my brain, freeing my mind up to continue on this organizational journey.
I’ll keep you posted as this progresses. In the meantime, are any of you GTDers? Do you have everything stored in a trusted system?
- I’m grateful! for a really productive day at work today. Good job, me! I’m also glad Greg introduced us to China Delight – yum!
- I’m lighter! I got up (spontaneously, without an alarm) before 6 this morning, and managed to do laundry and clean two bathrooms before D and Q got up. I also worked on my Mind Organization for Moms stuff tonight, setting up my system and gathering things into my Inbox.
