David Allen is the mastermind of it. But itâ€™s an organizational structure of grabbing everything out of your head, collecting it somehow and some where, processing your â€œstuffâ€, and then either acting on it or filing it away for future action. The subtitle of the book is The Art of Stress-Free Productivity. That sounds like bliss.
Iâ€™ve discovered many other websites that will help w/ implementing the GTD methods and tools of the GTD culture. But Iâ€™m realizing that I need to have a master collection agent, and be able to process and act on all of those thingsâ€¦.but more than that, I just need to focus on the task at hand and not get distracted. There are plenty of worthwhile things that I look at and get mesmerized by during my days, whether at work or at home. And theyâ€™re good things, but theyâ€™re not what I need to be accomplishing right then, whether itâ€™s returning an email, picking up something from the store, or making sure my kids get a bath.
But Iâ€™m taking the dive into GTD. Wish me luck.
