Brendon’s Answer on How to get started on GTD

Brendon’s Answer on How to get started on GTD

Couple of days ago we have posted a reader’s question on How to get started on Getting Things Done? and we received some great answers from our community. Brendon Connelly at Slacker Manager went one step forward and has written an article to answer this:

Over on Lifehack.org someone asked about how to get started with ‘Getting Things Done.’ I’ll throw my hat in the ring…shoots, I’ve gotten started lots of times!

There are just two things to be clear about before we begin. Thing one: read the book. I get frustrated when people say, “I’m planning on buying the book, but until then how do I…” Crikey, it’s $15! And free at the library (though you’re really gonna want your own copy) No excuses here—either buy it and read it, or quit talking about it. (man, that sounds grumpy) Thing two: weekly review (pdf) is not optional…

He also mentioned some initial setup on tools to get started on GTD. It is a very useful article.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
