First things First

Getting Things Done

You may not believe this, but I have a hard time dealing with Time Management.

I know what your thinking, “That can’t be true, Jason. You post so randomly and without warning, I assumed you had it all together.”

The reality is I’m a procrastinator and jump around from project to project throughout the day and sometimes throughout the hour.

I have an un-diagnosed case of adult ADD, live in a chaotic environment (working home with two kids), and get a weird enjoyment out of the feeling of urgency.

With posting on this blog three times a week and filming the “Learn to Animate Course,” I realize I need to come up with a better time management system.

Getting Things Done has been recommended to me by several entrepreneur friends.

This book is very popular among the internet marketing community.

This video was what made me decide I need to give the program a try:

It could be my love for this style of animation or that Monkey, but this video is incredible.

Beyond the visual elements, the video also makes logical sense. If I have problems paying attention, it stems from not having actionable steps (knowing what to do next), fear of forgetting another task I must complete, and a lack of consistently going over what I have done and what needs to get done.

My plan is to implement this strategy and update you on my progress of Getting Things Done.

Have you used this technique?
How do you get things done?

I would love to hear your stories.
