Arrrgghhh! Glen of LifeDev fame is turning his back on “his Daveness”.
Today I just decided to do something different. For one day I’m throwing GTD contexts out the window in my daily planning. No disrespect to The David, I’m just switching it up for a bit. I’ve got a theory.
Working from home is great. Lots of time to sit, contemplate, hash out ideas, take a break, wake up whenever you want, work whenever you want, play some video games, make a cup of tea… and the list could go on. However, the key is you are in control of what you do, and how you do it throughout the day in the privacy of your home office.
The purpose of this document is to outline all of the methods, practices, software and hardware (both HiFi and LoFi) I use to Get Things Done. This will provide a general outline of my system including keeping track of actions, projects, calendar items, contacts, etc. Most of my system is based on David Allen’s Getting Things Done methodology with many modifications and fluctuations to suit my needs. I will basically lay this out in the order of my “flow”
Life is short (or so I’m told) so why waste it doing something dumb? It’s easy to start working on something because it’s convenient, but you should always be questioning yourself about it. Is there something more important you can work on? Why don’t you do that instead? Such questions are hard to face up to (eventually, if you follow this rule, you’ll have to ask yourself why you’re not working on the most important problem in the world) but each little step makes you more productive.
GTD recommend us to list up what we are worrying about. Depressed person , like me, we are in panic or forget what we want. By listing up them, we can find ourselves and sorroundings, and find our desire, again. Usually, we tends to forget what we want, and only be in panic, and be depression.
What about these stickies app that come standard on every mac and just kinda sits there, not the widget one, the regular app one. Could you implement a basic GTD system with it?
