Who is this for? Those who are considering reworking or rebooting their personal productivity system.
If you’re stuck in a system, you have to get used to working within the limitations of that system.
This was a great conversation on considering and reconsidering your GTD system. The only addition I’d make to Erik’s point is that you also have to get used to the limitations of whatever system you create for yourself.
A perfect system is an unlikely goal. If you’re seriously reassessing or refactoring the way you work, focus on making things better. Some aspects of the way you work will continue to be imperfect. Embrace that reality, determine how to work through the rough spots and get back to work.
And if what you end up creating sounds “wrong” to others… well, then just heed the wise words of Gabe Weatherhead from the same episode:
Whatever’s working for you, keep doing that thing.
