Searching for a New System...
I've been using a sort of GTD system for a while now. I was pondering some of my commitments and time at lunch today and realized that GTD may not be the best for me.
I'm a highly task oriented person. So, initially, GTD seemed good. What I'm finding is that I'm a bit too tied to the task list. I have a large family and need to factor in more time for them. But since I tend to go too far with task lists, I seek your opinions on the three options below:
1. Retain my quasi-GTD system, and factor in more for all obligations
2. Scrap it and find something better
3. Go for an expanded scheduler
Right now, I handling it all in a Harvard Elite Planner, which I like: I can see and entire week at once, I can build in to-do's that don't have a calendar appointment. It only schedules from 7:30AM to 6PM, so maybe that's the issue. In any given week, in addition to work which doesn't live in my Harvard, I have church responsibilities, Sunday School or sermon preps; managing the church website; my own blog; coffee roasting; household repairs/projects/maintenance.
I will gladly hear any wisdom offered.
