I donít have the solutions, but hereís some empathy: empathy rays, empathy rays, empathy rays ...

GTDing has made a huge difference for me in some ways, while falling flat in others. But, over time, I seem to be gradually finding more and more ways in which GTD and OF can work their magic. Itís incremental.

Hereís a tip:

I have an @meta context in which I work on my GTD and organizational skills. I have a daily action I call ďfive-minute meta.Ē I have done it almost every morning for months. Itís just a few minutes of exploring OF, looking for ways to exploit it, poking around at random, cleaning things up ... reading the OmniFocus forums ... ;-) This was my 5-minute meta this morning!
