love this stuff David Allen at the “do” Lectures

A different angle from David Allen. Nice to hear a more personal side and connect some of the dots in my own head. Do Lectures 2010 – David Allen – Watch more Videos at Vodpod. Possibly Related Posts: What will Friday fashion: the first question Bag Hag Confession — iTunes On the selling of books

book review: Ready for Anything: 52 Productivity Principles for Work and Life

My book review of David Allen’s Ready for Anything: 52 Productivity Principles for Work and Life here got me thinking about the book in more detail. The hardest thing about the book was also its greatest asset. The fact it was an audiobook meant that it was right there with me which not only kept me moving through the book, and mindful of the principles, both good things. I am finding having a hard copy of books with me at the points that I feel like reading harder than it once was (bad for GTD itself perhaps, but there you go), so the audio allows me to use those moments […]

Tuesday tiny: GTD week three

Yes. It’s still working. Well in fact. Only a day after my scheduled weekly review I got to the point (in my “clear old podcasts” project), of listening to this, and even after my thorough mind sweep it worked well again.

GTD plus one week — What I’ve learnt so far.

Updated 1 pm 13th As I tweeted and wrote last week I did a re-implementation of GTD (Getting Things Done) the weekend before. Although I’ve used it somewhat over the last two years, it has been a bit haphazard so I decided a fresh implementation was in order. I’ve now done my first real weekly review (there wasn’t a lot to review on Day 0); and I now feel clearer. I never got through assigning “Next Actions to the Projects in the List, so cracks were already beginning to appear, but that has been sorted now. After all, that is what the weekly review is for. I did a week, […]

making me tingly

I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for a while. I have a friend coming up from down south for the day and while that will be lovely it isn’t what is getting me all tingly. No I’m going back to basics and getting “my affairs in order” In an non morbid sense and re-instating my GTD system. I used to be quite organised and systematic in my head and not so much in my body. I used to blame the one handed wheelchair user thing and perhaps that means I need to tweak my system. It shouldn’t mean that I can’t get organised. Indeed till about three years ago […]

GTD Times have some great advice as to how to save oneself from incidental reading overload especially  for knowledge workers. I wish I knew this sooner.

Getting things done …. dude

If you know me, especially off-line¬† probably know that I am a fan and practitioner of the Getting Things Done methodology by David Allen. Here is one guys’ approach to it on a Mac. I might one day do my own explanation of my system, but for the moment this is funny and wise! via Twitte The Way I Getting Things Done by Jon Larkowski from Hashrocket on Vimeo.

just as an aside

I seem to be keen on this writing thing today so I have had until recently it seems a rather swanky diary — a day timer which i was slowly starting to rely on as my solution to organisation and generally getting things sorted. Yet somehow rather stupidly I have misplaced it. Quite seriously perhaps as it has been gone for over 2 weeks that I know of. Bugger. I need to get some systems sorted.
