So, it’s New Year’s Eve and most people have spent the week preparing for tonight’s parties or making sure they have their resolutions in place. Each year around this time, I’m challenged to take stock of where I’m at and where I’d like to go. Unfortunately, step one requires a bit of introspection and getting myself organized.
Every year, I revisit David Allen’s Getting Things Done. I first encountered the book before college and found the concepts and process easy to follow and rewarding. I found myself thinking, “You mean, I don’t have to try to hold all those open loops in my head? Amazing!”
My first application of GTD® principles was with a Palm Z22. Needless to say, my iPhone 5 has far outmatched that late great palm. However, I still find myself needing an ecosystem or software to help me integrate email, notes, calendar, etc. all in one place. That’s where IQTELL comes in!
This year, I’ll be managing all of my “stuff” through a web-based system that’s built with GTD® in mind. Now, I can label and organize everything and determine what goes into “Next Actions” or what to place in “Waiting For” straight from the easy to use web interface you can see below.
I’m excited to use this tool in 2014 for business and personal projects! How will you get things done in 2014? What productivity tools have worked for you over the years? Cheers to your New Year!
