Huge GTD Series at Brandon 3.0

Huge GTD Series at Brandon 3.0

There’s a huge wealth of posts at Brandon 3.0 about Getting Things Done. I like them because it’s a personal skinning of the popular book by David Allen (we don’t have to tell you that any more, do we?). Brandon starts us out with a great question to ask yourself: WHY do GTD? How’s it better than what you’re doing now?

After that, Brandon covers part 1 of a series in a post entitled “Collection.” It’s great because it recaps the book, but it adds Brandon’s voice and thoughts on the matter. I urge you to check it out.

The whole idea behind this system is that you get everything (and by that I mean everything) out of your brain and into a “trusted system” so that you don’t have to think about the “stuff” in your life more than you have to.

The end result is

  • Reduced stress
  • Increased creative energy
  • Freedom to do what you want, when you want (i.e. when I’m hanging out with my friends, I can be totally involved, instead of having something in the back of my brain that’s bothering me.)

Why GTD? and Part One: Collection – [Brandon 3.0]

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

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.
