The Fine Art of Getting Things Done

David Allen is the productivity guru is the author of Getting Things Done : The Art of Stress-Free Productivity. GTD is widely abbreviated as Allen's method of getting things done. It focuses on (1) dumping all the floating around onto paper or into software -- and then sorting them into prioritized lists. And (2) breaking down the complex tasks into a series of next actions.

We all can benefit from this approach. It helps us sort out what is and is not important. It's the focus which is important.

Another approach is covered in the article about Randy Pausch (Last Lecture professor) in an article in Business Week (August 25 - Sept 1, 2008).  Given the time constrained world in which we all live, we should always be weighing whether we do X or Y.

Randy's sage advice: Ask: at the end of my life, which of these things will I be glad I did?
