For a while I've wanted to overhaul my organizational system in hopes that I can improve my productivity and prevent important details from slipping by. In addition to my landlord ventures, I have a full time job and am also starting my own software company.
So, this weekend I made the move to implement the Getting Things Done system. The basic premise is that you:
- capture all the things that need to get done into a logical and trusted system outside of your head and off your mind
- disciplining yourself to make decisions about all the inputs you let into your life, so that you will always have a plan for next actions that you can implement or renegotiate at any moment
In the next few days, I will describe how I fit my landlording into the system, what worked, and what didn't. If anybody has or does use this system I would appreciate your thoughts.
Thanks kengo for the image.
