Getting things done, again

According to the productivity guru David Allen, we shall re-read his book Getting Things Done every three to six months – to see if we can learn something new. But after reading his book two times in the past already, it is not easy to pick up the book again. So this time I tried the audiobook version of the book, narrated by David himself. With only 3 CDs in this audiobook, it is really easy to finish it. And here are the three main points of GTD again, for your pleasure:

  1. Keep everything out of your head;
  2. Regular review and update the complete inventory of open loops of your life and work;
  3. Decide actions and outcomes when things first emerge on your radar, instead of later.

Plain and simple, isn’t it ? Unfortunately, It takes a long time to master it …
