Getting Things Done
In this post, I don’t intend to describe the method in any detail (see diagram below, though). Instead, I simply want to urge you to give it a read! It’s not too long and a rather easy read. Best of all, I can almost guarantee that it will have a positive impact on your life.
As with virtually any method, very few follow it by the book all the time, but many of the principles are very powerful. Some of my favorites include:
- If it takes less than 2 minutes, don’t put it on a to-do list, just do it
- Never put something back into your inbox (or mark it as unread)
Below is a diagram summarizing the method. (But do still read the book!) There are tons of programs and tools to help you follow GTD, of which Things for Mac, iPhone, and iPad is my favorite.
