Getting Things Done

aq-admin Quotes Leave a Comment



GTD – is the popular shorthand for “Getting Things Done”, the work life management system and book by David Allen that has sold over a million copies. I was fortunate enough to attend one of his workshops here in London last week, so this week’s quotes are from the course.

Mastering Work Flow is a five step process.

1.   Collect
The first step is to collect all the ‘stuff’ – whatever has your attention.

Clear out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.
Dee Hock

2.   Process
Do it: Items that take less than 2 minutes to complete.
Delegate it: Items that can be completed by others.
Defer it: Items that can be completed later.

3.   Organise
Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.
Albert Einstein

4.   Review
Get Clear: Ensure all your stuff is processed
Get Current: Review your system and update lists
Get Creative: Follow your intuitive thinking

5.   Do
The beginning is half of every action.

Go to it and Get Things Done!  Alleviate the feeling of overwhelm, instill confidence and release a flood of creative energy.

Wishing you quintesential success
