Day 13: A 3-Step Beginner's Guide to Implementing Getting Things Done Method for Stress-Free Productivity
"Your mind is for having ideas, not holding them."
My journey with David Allen's Getting Things Done® (GTD) Method over the last few years has been transformative. Along this path, I've immersed myself in various resources to enhance my understanding:
I delved into David Allen's renowned book, "Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity," which laid the foundational principles of the GTD system.
I actively followed and learned from GTD Trainers, gaining from their expertise and experiences
All these resources have been instrumental in my growth. However, if I were to guide a beginner on this journey, here’s the simple framework I would recommend:
Step 1: Find a Face-to-Face or Online GTD Training
The most effective starting point is attending a GTD training. This structured approach provides a clear path, helping you avoid common mistakes and learn the methodology thoroughly.
Also, if you are interested in GTD, one of the official training partners Deepinsula is starting their newsletter, you can check and access to a free e-mail course and materials here!
Step 2: Getting Coaching
Having a mentor is invaluable. While I benefitted from general coaching, having a mentor specifically versed in GTD would have been a game-changer. An experienced GTD coach can tailor the method to your specific needs and ensure you’re building a solid foundation in the core principles.
Step 3: GTD Connect
After completing first two steps, joining GTD Connect offers access to a wealth of resources and a community of GTD enthusiasts. This support is crucial, especially when you're just starting out.
