Join David Allen for an in-depth discussion in this video How do I "stick with it?", part of Getting Things Done.
- I hear from a lot of people,…David, I started getting things done,…and I fell off the wagon.…Yeah, I know, until this thing becomes habitual,…it probably is something that you would…fall off the wagon about,…because people have such a habit…of keeping things in their head.…And when life gets tough,…and you can't focus on the thing you're trying…to learn, you'll get back onto cruise control again,…and cruise control for most people…is file it in your head, avoid making these decisions,…make decisions when the latest and loudest thing…is in your face, and when it blows up…instead of when it shows up.…And that is actually the default behavior…for a lot of people about a lot of stuff,…and they slip back into that pretty easily.…
As I've mentioned before,…that's a hallmark, a lot of how well…along the path you are to implementing this…is whether or not those kinds of situations…throw you off this wagon.…So, the interesting thing is it's very easy…to fall off the getting things done wagon.…What's also true is it's very easy…
