GTD/Seven Habits coexistence

Hi Everyone!

I've been attempting to implement GTD into my life and although I find it to be amazing, there's a bit of overhead that goes with it and sometimes I'm not consistent enough.

Anyway, one of the things that I personally have a problem with when it comes to time management is that I focus my attention on things which really are not too important. I mean, it would be much better if I shifted my priorities to things which really matter.

Recently I read Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and for those of you familiar with the book he talks about the four quadrants. For those who are unfamiliar, have a look at this site: http://attitudeadjustment.tripod.com/Books/7-Habits.htm

The basic idea is that we should spent most of our time in quadrants I and II in order to be effective.

Have any of you thought about adding this ON TOP of the GTD method, whether by tags or some other method?

Let me know what your ideas are and I hope I'm being clear.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
