When it comes to all the inputs in our life, we are generally overwhelmed, stressed, and out of control. The sheer number of to-dos, commitments, tasks and projects makes it difficult for us to ever feel “on top” of everything. The bad news is that we likely can’t change the amount of stuff we have coming into our life. The good news is that our research and 30 years of work have taught us that we don’t need more time or less stuff—we simply need to change the way we are engaging with that stuff.
When you change key habits, you gain greater control over your work, find more focus on each task, and feel a lot less stress. These Getting Things Done, or GTD, habits are found in the book, Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity by David Allen, as well as in our training course.
Take the first step to improving your GTD habits by completing a self-assessment. This twenty-question quiz reveals your natural tendencies when it comes to managing your workflow.
