Getting Things Done (GTD)

GTD Information

Getting Things Done (Kindle Link) Method:

  • Capture: Note stuff down, always
  • Clarify: Refine useful stuff you captured, is it a task? break down + make it actionable
  • Organise: Put it in the right place, schedule time, add dates/deadlines if actionable
  • Reflect: Dispose of any crap, make sure things are up to date, further refine your notes
  • Engage: Do the actual stuff, don't get caught in convoluting your workflow

2-Minute Rule

  • If a task arises that will take less than 2 minutes to complete, do it now
Notion Notes
  • Often coined as a "human operating system"
  • We often hold too much information at one time, training to capture more often
  • Hierarchy structure through pages
  • Key features: Databases, embeds, publish to web, todo lists, calendars
  • My personal homepage:

My Key Use-cases

  • Directory - "little black book" equivilant. Freelancers, agencies, good industry contacts, etc
  • Digital Archiving - Sets of basic databases with tagged entries that link to digital scans of paperwork.
  • Finances - Embed of a google spreadsheet that details regular cashflow
  • Travel - Itineraties, flight/hotel booking refs, guides, recommendations from friends
  • Health - Notes from every consultation, trackers on any "active" investigations, etc
  • Book Notes - Lots of good frameworks for book notes, main focus is on chapter breakdowns, with higher-level analysis after finishing

  • 3) Wasteman - Youtube/Twitter split view on main screen, Discord/Spotify on right monitor
