Not Getting Things Done
There’s no secret that we’re building some sort of todo app. In discussing it on Friday, we brought up a number of reasons why we don’t use current systems. We try, but we don’t continue after a few weeks.
My personal problem is not going back to the list often enough. I will start putting things in, but then I don’t go back to see what I needed to do. Sometimes I just remember and do them anyway, other times I never get them done.
David Allen talks a lot about how you have to build a “trusted system” so that your brain uses it instead of juggling what you need to do. Part of my problem is that I never use a particular app enough to fully trust it. Then, because it doesn’t have a comprehensive list of my todos, I use it even less.
Others on our team said lack of certain features is what has kept them from fully using a todo app.
What about you? What’s holding you back?
