GTD (Getting Things Done)

GTD is a productivity method for organizing your to-dos, priorities, and schedule in a way that makes them all manageable.

"GTD is an organizational system. It doesn't put rules around how you actually do your work. Instead, it focuses on how you capture the work you need to do, organize it, and choose what needs your attention"

Reacting and Overreacting

Not all intense responses are overreactions.

The problem arises when you start to react in a bigger way than justified.  Overreactions never make the situation better.

Types Of Overreactors

  • Internal: they overthink the things that don't go their way and are unable to put their focus onto something else.
  • External: they yell, scream, or snap back at people when something isn't exactly how they want it.

Know Your Triggers

This way, you can learn to be more in control of your reactions:

  • Identify the things that bother you the most (rejection, criticism, or even something that has nothing to do with you).
  • Think about basic contributing factors like lack of sleep, being hungry or thirsty, or being overworked.

Get Out of Your Inbox and Get to Work

Rather than checking your inbox for the 57th time today, check your to-do list and determine what you should be doing.

Your email is distractions and other people’s priorities. Your to-d...

7 Tips to Help You Get Out of Your Inbox:

  1. Instead of checking your email endlessly, limit the number of times you check your inbox. 
  2. Get things out of your email and onto your to-do list: If an email requires action beyond a response, then add that task to your to-do list where it belongs.
  3. Don’t read email, act on it: File, respond, or delete. Otherwise, you are just compounding the mess in your inbox for later.
  4. Close your email program.
  5. Keep your emails short and to the point. As well, ensure your “ask” is in the first line.
  6. Turn off the notifications: They interrupt your day and encourage you to stop your work to check your inbox.
  7. Don’t check email on your mobile device: If you are using your phone for communication, utilize more immediate forms of communication such as Slack, iMessage, and more.
