Now, a bit over three months are passed since I started applying Getting Things Done (GTD) for organizing my life. It really changed the way I work, and I am just getting slowly used to it. I still have the same empty and distraction-free desktop as when I wrote my first post about GTD. My desk still looks the same except that I removed one of the three boxes on the table. Furthermore, I started using a tool for the desktop and the iPhone, which proved to be quite useful. It’s called Things and it is a task management software according GTD for Mac. It is really great and I can heartily recommend it.
One thing I need to improve is defining more projects. There are a lot of Things that can be clustered into projects. This allows for a better overview of your tasks. Instead of 100 Things, you have 5-10 projects with 10-20 Things each. That is better to keep the “vue d’ensemble” of your tasks. Also once you started Things in a project, you continue on them until they are finished. That keeps the flow and your mind concentrated on one topic.
