David Allen is the mastermind of it. But it’s an organizational structure of grabbing everything out of your head, collecting it somehow and some where, processing your “stuff”, 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.
I’ve discovered many other websites that will help w/ implementing the GTD methods and tools of the GTD culture. But I’m realizing that I need to have a master collection agent, and be able to process and act on all of those things….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 they’re good things, but they’re not what I need to be accomplishing right then, whether it’s returning an email, picking up something from the store, or making sure my kids get a bath.
But I’m taking the dive into GTD. Wish me luck.
