I read GTD, ZTD, and, a ton of web articles about productivity.But, the problem is always the same - how do I start?
That's always the same problem with new habits or life changes, determining the first step and remaining motivated by showing improvement.
Is productivity a mindset, a set of habits or a set of automation/tools? Maybe it's simply the combination of all of them?
Should we track the activity (which we want to improve) to check its evolution? As a life dashboard, and check it every morning. The thought being "If you can't control it, you can't improve it."
Should we share our goals with someone else? The thought being that telling someone that you'll do X, forces you to do it and not procrastinate.
How does one move forward, take action, and start to build their own productivity system/environment? It looks the same in many others fields: start-ups, fitness, etc. Are there methods for these fields that might apply on a personal level?
Could there be an element of fear that prevents me from starting? I'm not afraid of productivity itself. However, I may feel apprehensive about life changes that are brought on by changes in productivity.
