How Can I Help You Kick Ass? Top GTD & Productivity Tips from the Last 5 Years
I’ve been writing about GTD and agile methods for a long time. But they are not a focus of this blog, and more of a byproduct of my approach to marketing and staying on top of all the social media channels and posts I need to accomplish during any given day or week or year. But I am very set in my ways. And some of them might be helpful to you, so I decided to collect the GTD (Getting Things Done) and Productivity Posts into this thread to help you find some of the best tools I’ve found in doing my day job. [Note: I owe the "kick ass" phrase to Kathy Sierra.]
Let me know what I’ve missed and I’ll see what I can do about adding your strategy and productivity tip here.
