I am a fiber artist and a secondary teacher and earned a MSED in Workforce Education and Development from SIUC. I have been studying GTD and am nearly through chapter 3. I look forward to implementing this process to achieve my personal and professional goals. This evening I downloaded the free articles available on the website and will be working on my calendar and Next Action lists tomorrow.
Finding a planning/organizing system that works for me has not been terribly successful. As a person with ADD and an ENFP, Myers-Briggs Type Inventory temperment, my brain wiring is adverse to highly structured routines and schedules. The reviews I read about David Allen's book indicated this was not the same old planner methods I tried to make work for 12 years! Ken Blanchard's recommendation stood out because we used the Organizational Management textbook he wrote with Hersey in one of my Workforce Education classes.
In this post, I am asking for advice that will help me begin learning the GTD process in simple, easy to implement ways-I hate to use the term steps. I have many goals I know can be accomplished but need to learn "the art of stress-free productivity!" I look forward to hearing suggestions and learning from members of the forum experienced in using this method!
