Yea..... that does not work for me. At all. Never has.Yeah It's a time management system:
Amazon.com: Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity (9780142000281): David Allen: Books
What he says about it makes a lot of sense, especially for an INTP. Basically, he encourages writing all your ideas and to do lists down on paper, or in a software program. Doing this frees up your mind (he compares it to RAM in a computer) to not have to waste room remembering stuff to get done. Then you separate your goals and to-do lists into different piles based on urgency. And instead of over analyzing, you just grab one item, do it, and cross it off, and continue the process. It's obviously more in depth than that, but it's a pretty awesome system and makes sense. I'm working on implementing it this week.
I'm not a 'list' and 'written outline' person.
