You may be noticing all the GTD stuff I am posting. I have been a convert for years. Like any other great religion, those that practice backslide from time to time. I tend to start the year off right and slowly slip into an unorganized mess. So I always refresh by reading the book in January. I refresh twice a year to just get back on the program.
If you have not read the book Getting Things Done, just do it. If you hate books buy the audio book. I think the book though is a must. It really does reduce stress when implemented. If you are a busy professional, especially if you work as a knowledge worker. Your brain is always churning, juggling just so you don’t drop that idea or thing to do. This book helps you build a trusted system to store information. Then gives you a process to handle the information. Once your brain knows the system is trusted you tend to not fret or think about the items you are not actively needing in this moment.
I spend allot of time like all of you do searching the web. It may be for entertainments, research, maybe to win a bet with a bar buddy or co-worker. There are many times I find a resource on the web I know I want to review in my daily or weekly review. I may find a funny video that really sells a concept I have been trying to get through to the people I am coaching. There are also times in the past, I find that product that may help you or I, raise it up a notch.
I am sure you too have a crazy long list of favorites or book-mark black hole they fall into. No more fine people. I will start posting them in this category. If you find one that may be better than the one I found, post a comment. If you have one you want to share that I may not even known was possible, post a comment or send an email.
