Control or Spontaneity? The Paradox

Date: Thursday, June 14, 2018 by GTD Times Staff

Control or Spontaneity? The Paradox

When people discover the level of personal organization I work within, they often ask, “Wow, does this guy ever have any fun?! He’s so organized!” My response is usually, “Who’s not having fun?” Frankly, I organize for freedom, not for hard work. Much of my personal system of organization was built and is constantly being […]

What Gets in the Way of Being Productive?

Date: Thursday, May 10, 2018 by GTD Times Staff

What Gets in the Way of Being Productive?

A typical question I get is, “What’s the one thing that we do that gets in the way of us being productive?” It’s not one thing, but five, all wrapped together: People keep stuff in their head. They don’t decide what they need to do about stuff they know they need to do something about. […]

Why Getting Organized Usually Hasn’t Worked

Date: Monday, May 07, 2018 by GTD Times Staff

Why Getting Organized Usually Hasn’t Worked

I had another BFO the other day (that’s a Blinding Flash of the Obvious): one of the reasons most people are to some degree allergic to “getting organized” is the consistent lack of success they have experienced over the years with how they’ve approached the whole process of to-do lists. The reason those lists have […]

How things get done

Date: Saturday, April 14, 2018 by GTD Times Staff
