Getting Things Done

Time commitment to get started: Medium

Type: Abstract, visual, tactile

Perfect for people who: Have a lot of loose ends rattling around in the brain and need a way organize it all.

What it does: Gets your thoughts, worries, and to-dos all out on paper (or into an app) and then helps you organize it all into small, bite size tasks that you can tackle immediately.

Capture — This is a brain dump. Just write down everything you have to do in any order with any wording.

Clarify — Pluck out the vague ideas and worries and break them down into specific tasks or steps.

Organize — Now that you have the tasks clarified, you need to prioritize them and attach due dates where you can

Reflect — Look over your to-do list on a daily and weekly basis. Are there any steps in your projects that are still too vague? Break them down further.

Engage — Attack that list. You’re ready to get stuff done.
