Ultimate Tip to Reach GTD Nirvana

This post is part of Ben Yoskovitz’s latest group writing project: The Ultimate Guide to Productivity.


Yep, that’s the way to reach GTD nirvana. Do the actions on your lists. Don’t fuss with moving them around. Don’t try a new system every week. Just do it!

The main point behind GTD is that you should be able to crank widgets when it’s time. You can breeze through your lists, tackling actions right and left. But that means you’ve got to sit down and DO!

I know it’s harder than it sounds. That’s why I’ve written about it before. To help even more, I’ve done some link mining for you.

    The nofollow movement is growing! Link love for all!

    Oh, and great post! “Do” can be the hardest part, especially when list-making and notebook-hacking can shield you from unpleasant tasks.

    Hi Stephen,

    I’m glad you liked the post. I actually spent time earlier today playing with my “system,” instead of actually doing my actions. It’s so hard to keep from doing that. 🙂

    I love your blog. I’m definitely looking forward to reading your work.

    Take care,
