A more stress-free life starts today as you begin to manage tasks and get things done!
I have to be honest, at times, my life as an entrepreneur has felt as if I worked for a circus. I’ve learned the art of juggling, jumping through hoops, balancing, and instances where it felt like I was training animals (did I say that out loud?). It was stressful and I was taking on too many tasks.
About a year ago, I found a book by David Allen called “Getting Things Done”. I was instantly intrigued by his fun concept he brands as GTD®, “the proven path for getting in control of your world, and maintaining perspective in your life” so I decide to get ‘er done!
This method rests on the idea of moving planned tasks + projects, from your email inbox or one sent to you, out of your head by recording them externally and then breaking them into actionable work items so you can get things done. This was intended to allow you to focus your attention on taking action on tasks instead of recalling them. You do this by either taking action on the tasks/projects, delegating them or simply putting it into the trash bin/keep for later pile.
The thought behind this concept is to reduce stress while increasing productivity as it will create less distraction from the incomplete tasks that come your way. Attached is an infographic that shows the GTD® workflow. With this method, you can store, track and retrieve the information related to the things in your life or business that need to get done and create the proper planning in advance to put your mind at ease.
