I am slowly learning the GTD Methodology. It is one of the best stress-free productivity systems out there.
I was listening to an episode from the GTD Connect library on the power of writing things down and an idea for using the Tickler file.
Two things really stuck with me that I will be implementing in my life straightway:
- Spend one minute at various points in your day to perform a Mind Sweep. Highly recommended times to perform one is:
- Early in the morning
- Before starting your workday
- Before closing your workday
- Before going to sleep
- Add a note in the Tickler folder to spend a fiver on yourself. You can buy yourself a cup of coffee or a cupcake or whatever you want. Try to keep this practice as a recurring reminder. The surprise element will bring joy and put a smile on your face. I love this idea so much! I’m using the GTD Intentional Journal that comes as part of my GTD Connect membership. You can use your calendar for this recurring note. Hope you will try it out.
