Feeling more in control

I am on my third week of implementing the GTD mindset. I am 48% done the book (thanks kindle) it is taking a lot longer than I thought to get through the book as I am taking notes and implementing the aspects covered on the fly. The last two days have seen me working through my various "reference" files. I have gone from having literally thousands of useless pieces of paper to under 100 useful files. They are alphabetized and labeled and ready to be used properly. What I am slightly surprised with is how good it felt to get rid of paper that had very little meaning or value to me. I would have thought I never thought about the shit but I guess I did as I am finding already I am more relaxed as I know where things go.

So onwards, this is really changing my life for the better.

Good for you!!! My problem is after the fact and then the paper I threw away is needed. However, that rarely happens.

Have a single inbox and put everything in it. Then use the pocessing diagram in David Alen's
book (chapter 5 I believe. If you follow that method you should almost never throw away something you need.
