Ask The Readers: How Did You Learn GTD?
A simple question today that I hope will get some varied responses. How did you learn GTD (or if you use something else, how did you learn that)? The obvious answer will probably be that you just read the book, but that wasn’t the case for me and I suspect it isn’t the case for many of you guys too. I originally came across GTD via several blogs like Lifehack.org and picked up tips from those for a few months before finally purchasing the book. I applied bits and pieces from the book as I needed them so I suppose you can say I never really had a “full” GTD implementation (the original highlights that I took from the book were contexts, next actions and, er… having a big filing system).
On a related point, I’d also be interested on your views on how you think people should actually learn GTD. I see a lot of people on Twitter struggling along, trying to apply it and use it day-to-day with mixed success. Hopefully your suggestions could help develop a few ideas on best practises for learning how to be productive. As ever, I look forward to your comments!
