Getting things done

Last year I read half of GTD by David Allen who is the guru of administrative efficiency. This is not one of my strong cards as it isn't for many of us who would rather be with people than paper. It is a good book-I have read half of it. The consequence of this is I now have a filing cabinet and a huge pile of what Allen would call 'un-processed actions'. This is the year of the second half of the book.

Here is Allen's office to set you the vision and here is a critique of where the Allen method falls short.

The great fear with all this is that one becomes highly organized but really rather dull:)

Oh, the irony of only managing to read HALF of a book titled "Getting things done".

Sadly a testament to my immense lack of administrative ability. I live in hope!!!
