Making change requires work, work requires time and time is limited.
I am writing this post primarily to assist my friend Michael (who is new to personal productivity) but I also hope it will be useful for many people working on improving personal resilience in their lives. I’ve been a practitioner of “Getting Things Done”, a method of personal productivity from the book of the same name for about 4 years now. I have written on this subject before on my page on personal productivity but this time I thought it might be useful to publish how I set myself up to have a good productive day. The post will be brief as I have time boxed this activity to 30 minutes.
STEP 1 Review my todo lists
- For personal todos I use and application called “Things”
- For Shared todo’s I use “Remember the milk”
- For work todo’s (which I use an A4 spiral bound book)
I’m at home and working on Personal todos. I review my todos in “Things” and write out the ones I want to do onto post its
STEP 2 Reorder my notes in the order I will work on them
STEP 3 Write out my plan adding times to each activity
It is now 6:41 it took about 5 minutes manage my lists and 36 minutes to take photos and write this post so I am behind so need to wrap this up. I hope you find this useful. As I said before I believe personal productivity is very important I reccomend reading getting things done. Other books and materials I have found useful on this subject can be found here.
