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.)
