Get Things Done (GTD)

Get Things Done (GTD)

I’m a fan of David Allen’s Getting Things Done. His book spawned an entire industry. It also causes a lot of stress.

A few years ago, David was speaking at a conference, and folks asked how he managed to get things done:

1) Nothing gets done until I process everything. No cheating.  

2) I process everything into a single “trusted” place when I have time. Some folks use a journal. Others use software or an app. 

3) I review my potential work weekly and decide if I still need to do it.

Nothing added to your list is more important than tasks already there. Processing everything together will reveal the best path. Stay focused, my friend.
