Productivity, Motivation, and Personal Development Links – 7th June 2009

It has been my twins birthdays today. They are three. How time flies!

Had a good day at a toddler theme park in the UK. Got wet, as usual, but had a great time.

Here are my collection of links for this week.

  • My first link for this week is a link to a great SlideShare presentation on Time Management for Getting More Done with Getting Things Done. Intriguing title and well worth a look. I feel a post about SlideShare coming as some awesome resources are now on SlideShare.
  • My second link is a link to a list of 5 Great GTD Applications for Linux. It is probably fair to say that pure Linux users are in their minority but they do still exist. I know from this blog stats that I have many followers who are Linux based so this list of Linux GTD apps will be well received.
  • My third link is a link to a nice GTD intro post titled Going from Failing to Straight A’s with OmniFocus & GTD from Colin Wheeler. This is a nice post about how GTD helped one student vastly increase their grades.
  • My fourth link is a link to a great post from Web Worker Daily titled Not a GTD Disciple? Don’t Worry About It. Good post that covers general productivity.
  • My fifth and last link is a link to a post that raised quite a lot of interest when I tweeted about it. The post is Why GTD Sucks from Darkling Wood. Interesting post that I do not fully agree with. I am not the type of person who pushes pure GTD down peoples throats but I do believe in improvement and having the willingness to develop. What I love about GTD is the loose methodology that can bring so much to people. Love to hear your thought son this post.

I promise you all that I will write a couple more posts this week as I have some good ideas for the week.

Wishing you all a great week!

    Thanks for the links. What I appreciate best is the GTD Sucks post. It made me realized what I have been able to take, adapt and really make work for me. The concept of NEXT ACTION is one that has truly improved my productivity. I’m not hung up on the multiple lists (i.e. context). However, CONTEXT plays a big part in how I get things done. If I’ve got 10 minutes before a meeting – that’s the CONTEXT – what can a tackle and tick off the list. That’s how context works for me.

    The other piece I couple with GTD is the book Three Laws of Performance. How I create the future, choose the action, and speak about it is helpful in my productivity in – and out of – work! Here’s more on it:
