GTD – The Strategy for Success

There are so many things that you may want to do – but the question remains, how you get all of them done?

This is where I am at today. I like doing anything but what I’m ‘supposed’ to do. I work an 8-5 (or 7-4) job. I do some yard work around the house and I go shopping to get my meals for the week. I’ll tell you right now, I’d like to do anything else but those things.

I have ideas, and all I do is write them down then pass them off as a fleeting interest. Something I’d like to work on someday.

But what is true success? My idea of success is doing what I want and enjoy for a living. I couldn’t be further from success at this point in my life. I’m scattered, and I tend to be lazy. I don’t go out of my way to work toward my goals. I read ‘how to make money online’ books and blogs.

When I think of an interesting idea to work on/investigate/write about, I write it down on a piece of paper and stick it in my pocket. At the end of the week I take all of the accumulated papers out of my pocket and stick them on the top of my dresser where they sit for another week or two.

In the end I never do anything with the ideas on the slips of paper. So that is what happens to all of my great plans and ideas.

Also, whenever the going gets tough, I move on to something else. I never stayed with any particular project long enough to make money with it. I’ve never seen things through.

I need to make some changes to make some progress. To start, I will use GTD or Getting Things Done (Affiliate Link). I’ll go through all of my things and process them by instructions in the book.

After I read the book, I’ll find an ‘make money online’ technique to work on and I’ll stick through it until I make progress.
