Getting Things Done - A Revisit -- I've been recently trying to improve my personal productivity based on a process (pdf) described in the book Getting Things Done by David Allen. It's a bit of a journey changing core habits at my age, but I'm starting to see and feel some positive effects. It's really quite a best seller and there's even quite a cultish feel from some of the book's proponents and worth looking into if you find yourself a bit out of control and losing things between the cracks.
One of the best blogs related to the book and process and subject, 43 Folders,has recently run a summary called Building A Better To-Do List (Part 1 and Part 2), which you might want to check out first.
One of my recent sharings with my co-workers was a piece about taking time to think. I'm starting to think that this Getting Things Done process is helping me along those lines. That and getting up early enough to send out things like this at 6:30 in the morning.
Now if I could only apply the benefits to keeping up with posting to this blog...
