504 – Dis-Organisation

A couple of days ago I commented on the size of the chimney stacks on some of the houses here in Gosport. The header picture is one which shows the smoke stacks in question. It suddenly occurs to me that the smoke stacks of houses could become an obsession akin to pylons. But, that is not what this post is about.

This post is about my wishing to get a system in place for task management for when I go back to work in the New Year. An American, David Allen wrote a book about the system he has developed called “Getting Things Done.” I read the GTD book several years ago, and have had a couple of goes at sticking to the process he describes.

The GTD process isn’t massively bureaucratic and is fairly straightforward, it isn’t the process that is the problem, I think it is my fairly chaotic approach to things as they come in. It’s a lack of discipline and disorganisation on my part that I think is the root of my problem.

The New Year is a beginning a new start. One thing I really, really hate about work is somebody saying to me “have I looked at such and such” and my having to say “I can’t remember” and not having a mechanism for quickly referring back to what I have or have not done.

I am hoping to have in place a system, which I will try to force myself to stick to. Let’s see how it goes.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
