There is something seriously wrong with buying a copy of Getting Things Done and then proceed to procrastine on reading it.
I did the exact same thing! Some parts are pretty dry and/or business focused.

Just the idea of someone telling me to get stuff done makes me want to procrastinate. The best piece of advice for getting stuff done I ever got was this: Plan on spending on 15 minutes on a task, especially an overwhelming or boring one. Setting a timer is helpful. Once you get past 10 minutes, I guarantee you you’ll want to keep working at it until it’s complete.

I don’t read about getting things done – I don’t have enough time so I just go ahead and do the damn things. (If you wondered, I arrived at this webpage by accident.) Kind regards from Hong Kong, Robert.

I’m currently reading about people taking time to do what really matters to them and Not Getting Things Done. Works for me
