Join the CWSA and the Cleveland Ruby Brigade (CleRB) as we welcome Josh Walsh as he presents his thoughts on Getting Things Done.
"Three years ago my life was spinning out of control. I was making promises to people I couldn't keep. I was committing to projects I couldn't complete. Worst of all, I didn't know it until it was too late.
"I've got news for you, the bottom of the rabbit hole is not stacked with pillows, rather it's a cold and unforgiving granite floor. My tasks were piling on top of me, burying me in my proverbial productivity grave. My only choice was to dig out or die.
"I found myself at Borders, flipping through David Allen's Getting Things Done. I put it down quickly. Everything I read was common sense. "Write your tasks down and review them often." "Start a todo list and trust it." Blah blah blah, it had to be nonsense.
"It turns out that it wasn't nonsense at all. Common sense was the secret to it's power and David had put together a system so nearly perfect that it still holds true over 10 years later.
"Fortunately for me, I solved the puzzle. I've been a devoted GTD practitioner ever since and I would love to share some of the things with you that I've learned along the way."
