How do you get people to do what they said they would do?

The main problem most people have with delegation is the lack of regular review, enough so that you will light a fire or check status early enough to be able to deal with the other person optimally.

GTD Best Practices: Doing (Part 5 of 5)

An easy way for me to explain the “Doing” phase of GTD is to simply say “trust your gut/butt/intuition/hunch/heart.” There is gold in that, and ultimately that’s what it will come down to. But how do you even get to the point of trusting whatever part of you makes a trusted decision? Here’s where the […]

Handling "emergencies" with GTD

Dear David Allen: When you have a system and you have focus appropriately. Probably 95% of my usage of my own system is to allow me to feel comfortable with a change of plans. You want to keep your backlog of unprocessed stuff at a minimum, and an inventory of all possible actions close at […]

You are in control when you can see it all

No matter what level or field we find ourselves on, whether it is the corporate/professional aspect or our personal/home life, we set priorities and act on what we think is important. We could call that “simplifying” our lives. And by that we do not mean lowering our standards, but rather focusing on the ones that […]

Being comfortable with letting things get out of control

Question: I listened to your Webinar on Procrastination (you can find this Webinar on GTD Connect, our online learning center) and have found that I have trouble starting to “do” anything when I know there is a lot of unprocessed stuff. I have the type of job whereby e-mails, paper, and other things accumulate rapidly […]

Should you create subprojects?

A GTDer asked: I am using the GTD Outlook Add-In software. Should I create subprojects? Coach Kelly: I personally don’t use the subproject feature of software. For me, everything is just a Project. But if you do decide to use it, it can be a nice way to sort major components of a large project. […]

Getting started with GTD

One of the most common questions we get is how to get started with GTD. New people, especially, will ask this after coming to us dazed and confused by what GTD is really about. And, lots of people seem to be hoping a piece of software will teach them GTD. Sorry, but that’s kind of […]

Getting your arms around your priorities

Let’s talk about the Horizons of Focus.  In my experience, this is one of the parts of the GTD approach that can take a little time for people to get their arms around. This is where priorities and perspective live. Whereas traditional time management approaches attempted to give people an ABC type coding system for […]
