GTD, day 1

I was up at 7:30 AM in order to take my car into Saturn. I was scheduled to have the door check link replaced on the driver’s side door. I also asked them to check my brakes, which were squeaking. They fixed my door and brakes (only the front brakes needed fixing), resurfaced the rotors, rotated the tired and balanced the wheels. All is well. I got out of there around 10:30 AM, and then headed over to Staples to run some errands.

I set aside this weekend to begin full implementation of GTD. For those of you who don’t know what GTD is, you can read all about it here. It’s based on a book by David Allen called, Getting Things Done and I’ve read the book twice. I found the theory interesting, but as always, I’m a bit skeptical. Still, it seems worth giving it a shot. A few years back, I gave it a half-hearted attempt, but in order to be fair, I’m going full-out. I’ve got the weekend blocked out to do my initial collecting, processing, organizing and reviewing. We’ll see how it goes.

William Gibson will be signing books at Bailey’s Crossroads this evening at 7:30 PM and I’m thinking that might be a nice break. I’m not certain I’ll head over to the signing yet; it will depend on my progress and energy level, but the bookstore is only 18 miles away so it’s not a long trip.

The weather is beautiful today. I’ve got just about every window in the house open. There’s a nice breeze and its about 76 degrees out.
