Life can get overwhelming if you don’t try to organize it. It might also feel out-of-control when you want to do so much but only have 24 hours in a day. It’s very easy to see your day passing-by with no satisfactory outcome.
Being in fast-moving tech-world only compounds to the above-mentioned feelings. Hence, I am always on the lookout of how to manage my time and energy towards a fulfilling and a stress-free life. So much so that I even tried designing an app that helps you manage your time and achieve your goal.
I have tried many methods to organize myself like putting everything on the calendar, creating many to-do lists or writing on a notepad. But these methods always fall through cracks. I always felt something is missing in this methods like there are dots which are not connected.
I was researching how people on internet approach this problem and was flooded by many methods.
After researching about few methods I decided to give GTD a try.
Out of impulse I quickly ordered the book but couldn’t find time to read it(the irony) until recently.
I am done with the first part of the book which describes what of technique. And I have to say that books made a lot of sense. I can partly see why my previous attempts were failing.
I will not go in the detail about the technique here. But if I were to describe few interesting points about technique, that would be following —
Part two of this book has tools and methods to implement this practice.
Meanwhile, I am also researching online how people are using digital tools to implement GTD.
As a first step, I will start offloading my brain by writing down all the active projects and projects which I always wanted to complete. Since this book goal means anything which requires more than one action this list will consist of 30–50 items.
I am excited to see what changes it brings in my daily and efficient I become in achieving my goals.
I will keep posting about my progress in implementing this method.
Please do let me know if you or someone you know have tried this method.
