As the newish tagline of my blog indicates, I’m a practitioner of David Allen’s Getting Things Done (GTD). I’ve been meaning to make some posts about how I apply it to graduate school and research, but in the mean time, Matthew Cornell has a nice post about warning signs that you’re not keeping things out of your head and in the system.
I’ve occasionally noticed some signs of falling behind. I wanted to share a few of them, and ask what others you’ve come across in your implementation.
These are also good signs that you might need to revamp your organization, even if you’re not a GTD practitioner per se.
