With these five easy steps you will get a brief overview of ‘Getting Things Done’. Within no-time you have experienced the energy that comes forth when you use the ‘GTD’-principle to get things done.
Collect al things that get your attention. Things includes hard-copy material you may have laying around, e-mails awaiting your response and personal items that are related to a to-do. In other words collect all things that you need to do, handle or finish.
Now that you’ve collected all ‘things to do’ (and hopefully cleared your head while doing this) ask yourself, “are these items actionable?” If no, trash it, file it or incubate it for reference. If yes, define the next step to take. Will the action take less then two minutes? If yes, then do it right away. If not, then delegate (if possible), or put it on a to-do list for further handling.
The next step is organizing. Use action reminders with your to-do lists to remind you of the next course of action. Different to-do lists could be ‘running errands’, ‘sending follow-up mails’, ‘calls to make’ .
Reflect early and often. Look at your list(s) whenever you are uncertain as to what to do next. Also do a weekly review; update, clean up and empty your head.
Take matters in your own hands. Perform actions when necessary using this system.
