Getting Things Done® (GTD®)

Getting Things Done® (GTD®)
Getting Things Done (GTD) is a method for organizing tasks so that you can focus your entire energy and creativity on completing those tasks in a stress free manner. This method was developed by David Allen in his book, Getting Things Done. The main principle of GTD is that recording your tasks in a reliable way - using a system that you trust - will free your mind from trying to remember and prioritize stuff. This recaptured mental energy can be put towards being more productive and efficient. Collection The first step to GTD is collecting all of the information that is bouncing around in your head by getting it out of your mind. If you can express your ideas in words and record them outside of your head, your mind will have permission to no longer waste energy trying to remember them. Toodledo is the perfect collection bucket for this type of information. You will also want to have a physical in-basket to collect paper based materials.

GTD (Getting Things Done) – S'organiser pour réussir Phrase-résumée de « Getting Things Done – S’organiser pour réussir » : Pour être efficace, il est nécessaire d’avoir l’esprit clair comme de l’eau de roche ; pour cela il faut le désencombrer de toutes ses pensées parasites qui viennent nous distraire en permanence, ce qu’il est possible de faire en plaçant dans un système externe automatisé toutes les choses que nous devons ou voulons faire, pour décharger notre cerveau de l’obligation d’y penser – chose qu’il fait mal, sans aucune gestion des priorités et sans la conscience du moment propice pour le faire. Par David Allen, 272 pages, publié en 2001. Titre original : Getting Things Done : The Art of Stress-Free Productivity Imaginez ce que vous pourriez faire si vous pouviez choisir de vous consacrer pleinement à vos tâches, sans la moindre interruption, pensée parasite, rêverie et autre source de distraction, tout en restant détendu et en pleine possessions de vos moyens.

Using My First BlackBerry | 2Time I spent a few minutes today setting up my first Blackberry… this after writing several articles about the way that the device is being abused by working professionals around the world. It’s barely been a day, but I am coming to understand its addictive nature, and why people seem so engrossed by them, especially to those who are non-users. #1: the screen and keyboards are very, very small compared to the usual freedom I have using a laptop with one or two screens and keyboards. It feels as if I’m threading a needle every time I pick it up, and my bifocals are finally getting the workout they deserve as I quint, furrow my brow and tune everything out in order to hit small key, teensy radio buttons with a slippery feeling trackball. #2: as a practitioner of the Zero Inbox, push email drives me crazy. To the new user, this is crazy. All in all, I appreciate the convenience of mobile email, but so far it’s not a game-changer in productivity terms.

Those 80+% of us simply do not have a plan or even something close to GTD — they just react to current events and demands (also known as emergencies). The inventor of GTD David Allen makes it all clear. You can't manage time, it just is. — David Allen GTD in Short GTD (Getting Things Done) is a principle or a recipe if you will.

Logiciel gratuit de gestion de projet et de feuille de temps en ligne GTD: You need a daily action plan The alarm sounds. A long day ahead to enjoy, but also many things to do. Do you feel relaxed or overwhelmed by everything you have to do? The truth is that there is a difference when you start your days knowing what you’re going to find. A daily action plan should be a guide destined to eliminate the stress of uncertainty and motivate you to carry out a series of actions that you have formulated as fully feasible. If you use GTD as your personal productivity system then you already have a structure of action lists that show you your action options when you need to see them. First, you must look at the events that you have committed in your Calendar.

GTD WAY Evernote en français | Evernote Corporation Why working with priorities often doesn't work? By Francisco Sáez • January 10, 2011 “There is a regular tension between things that are urgent and things that are important — and far too often, the urgent wins” ~ Charles E. Hummel, “Tyranny of the Urgent”, 1967 Traditional management systems, both personal and corporate, are based on the prioritization of every project and task to perform. It’s so common that we all are used to working that way to some degree. The problem is that, normally, we assign priorities to tasks according to their urgency instead of their importance. To break the cycle, you need to stop and look at all your projects, whether they are in progress or pending. In GTD, the “priority” of things is defined by your self commitment to accomplish them. In order to decide whether to commit yourself to a project or not, you must be clear about your ultimate goals. Beware of daily emails and phone calls, beware of that coworker asking you anything while you are having a coffee. inShare4 About the author

Getting Things Done | Mike Radomski Unix Crosses Over Productivity I try to keep my approach to productivity and life as simple as possible. I do not like a bunch of clutter in my personal or work life. I am not sure where this philosophy stems from, I am sure childhood, so far it has served me well. I am drawn to systems that are simple, non-obtrusive and get out of your way when they are no longer necessary. Lifehacker ran an intriguing article entitled Applying Unix Philosophy to Personal Productivity. The article helped me start inspecting my Unix geekdom. Rule of Modularity: Write simple parts connected by clean interfaces.

Getting started with "Getting Things Done" This article was originally posted during the first week of 43 Folders' existence, and, pound for pound, it remains our most popular page on the site. Please be sure to also visit related pages, browse our GTD topic area, plus, of course you can search on GTD across our family of sites. I’ll be talking a lot here in coming weeks about Getting Things Done, a book by David Allen whose apt subtitle is “The Art of Stress-Free Productivity.” You’ve probably heard about it around the Global Interweb or have been buttonholed by somebody in your office who swears by GTD. (It probably takes a backseat only to the Atkins Diet in terms of the number of enthusiastic evangelists: sorry about that.) Like I did the other day with Quicksilver, I wanted to provide a gentle, geek-centric introduction to Getting Things Done, so that you can think about whether it might be right for you. The Problem with “stuff” Stuff is bouncing around in our heads and causing untold stress and anxiety. GTD is geek-friendly

RTM vs Nozbe vs Nirvana. The best GTD Solution? « UPDATE – I’ve been using Remember the Milk for a year now. Check out my latest post about what I’ve liked about using RTM this last year, and what I’d like to see get changed. My 1 year Anniversary with RTM! My thoughts on our relationship… There has been quite a lot of Web-based To-Do lists managers launched in the last couple of years. The 3 main contenders are: Remember the Milk, Nozbe, & Nirvana. Here is a small list of the criteria I am looking for in a good, always accessible To-Do List Manager. It has got to work in the most common web browsers. OK, not a small lists of demands, so let’s see how they faired. Web App Remember the Milk‘s standard interface is the least appealing of the bunch. The power of RTM is the smart lists and search function. You can see the various contexts/tags on the right. One thing that is missing from the UI is a calendar. Overall impression: Screaming fast task entry, compatible with all browsers, not very appealing to look at. iPhone App Price! Final Tally
