GTD for sustainable productivity

Date: Monday, March 21, 2011 by GTD Times Staff

GTD creates more space in our thinking, so we can manage the surprises of an increasingly complex world.  That’s what Tony Schwartz said in the Harvard Business Review and Fast Company, following up on his talk at the SXSW Conference.  He advises readers to develop sustainable practices for productivity.  We’re more effective navigating the whitewater of our busy lives when we make sure that there are enough of what he calls “purposeful pauses” for review and reflection in calm water.

    So true. I’ve tried some other methods, but they don’t hold up. When I do GTD, I get more of that calm.

    In order to make a leap you need to take a step back.
    This is why I find weekly review so effective. It’s that time of the week where you remove yourself from the daily rush and analyze your commitments and priorities.

    Same for me. Nothing has been as sustainable as GTD. Mind like water…just like the picture.
