Do Business Well : Get Things Done

Maybe you can write your to-dos on these LCDs?

Information. Management. Communication. Technology. Management. Profit. Revenue. Work. Management. Organization. Leadership. Task Completion. Management. Notice anything?

As defined by the bosses at Merriam:

Management – 1 : the act or art of managing : the conducting or supervising of something (as a business) 2 : judicious use of means to accomplish an end.

According to the epic work of David Allen, in his book, Getting Things Done, in order to manage anything, you must figure out what it is. Or as some religious fanatics espouse, “Name it Claim it.” However, it’s typically not that simple.

Some people actually enjoy the arduous process of creating to-do lists. Let’s call them neurotic. Often, they’ll end up with a great deal of things that need to be accomplished, naming their items, and at the end, feel dejected and overwhelmed after gathering them all.

Here’s another post on to-do lists, that was recently freshly pressed. Take a look and remember, to-do lists aren’t warm or fuzzy. But maybe, GTD is?
