Starting Out When Building New Habits

When it comes to putting in place your new productivity system [GTD etc] or just implementing some new habits, it helps to know where to begin – because that is usually the most difficult stage.

OrganizeIT has a few pointers when starting out, mostly around the idea of keeping it simple. You can always build up from there.

Don’t micromanage
There seems to be a misconception that having lists and systems in place helps to support you in your habit building and keep your mind focused on your efforts. However, in the early days that’s part of the problem. I’ve found that I have built up habits more effectively when I wasn’t always reminded of my up-and-down progress.

What are your suggestions for anyone starting out?
