When are you at your best?
Is it when you’re overwhelmed, stressed out and have too much on your mind?
Or when your mind is relaxed, and you have the freedom to focus on the most meaningful things?
The answer is obvious, but when you look for help on productivity, it’s all about doing things like waking up early, creating more goals and filling your calendar with tasks.
While these can be helpful, it misses the point, that to be productive you need to manage your attention, not your time.
What makes GTD a best-selling productivity system, is it’s based on the premise “Your mind is for having ideas, not holding them.”
It works by enabling you to track your commitments outside your mind, into a system that you trust, to remind you to do the right things at the right time.
When your mind is free from tracking commitments, it creates mind-space to be focused and meaningfully engaged.
