Staying on the GTD Wagon (Part II)

It’s much harder to stay on top of your GTD if the system isn’t working for you. GTD works, so don’t blame the system. There are a number of small things that can go wrong, however, if you aren’t careful.

Exercise regular reviews. If you aren’t reviewing, you aren’t Getting Things Done. I review my action list a minimum of once a day. I review my action list when I think to myself “what should I be doing?” I review my Someday/Maybe list at the first of every month, and whenever I’m feeling day-dreamy. I review my project actions every time my brain switches contexts to that project.
