Merlin Mann, at organization blog 43 Folders, has been Getting Things Done. What is GTD? “Basically, you make your stuff into real, actionable items or things you can just get rid of.”
Mann has been doing this for a year, and now has a review of his progress.
So how does GTD work?
This is a really summarized version, but here it is, PowerPoint-style:
1. identify all the stuff in your life that isn’t in the right place (close all open loops)
2. get rid of the stuff that isn’t yours or you don’t need right now
3. create a right place that you trust and that supports your working style and values
4. put your stuff in the right place, consistently
5. do your stuff in a way that honors your time, your energy, and the context of any given moment
6. iterate and refactor mercilessly
