Getting Things Done (GTD)

GTD Overview
Getting Things done @Intentwise

One of the motivational factors here at Intentwise is the boundary that we work within by dividing tasks daily, or on a weekly and monthly basis.

We follow the 3 task rule:

  • 3 tasks on a daily basis
  • 3 tasks on a weekly basis
  • 3 long term tasks on a monthly basis

This forces prioritization and re-prioritization on a regular basis so that at any given point, the task at hand is always important.

Following GTD in our workflow has helped us to be more focused, relaxed and less stressed as we work on an incremental process. We strongly believe that “Creativity Needs a Clear Mind”.

GTD Philosophy

Here are three simple steps in getting things done on a regular basis

  • Capture: collect things that catch your attention — small or big, personal or professional
  • Organize: things that are actually needed and put it into action where they really belong
  • Review: everything thoroughly and frequently to catch missteps and misses

Repeat these to achieve the goal in a long-term. Setting everything up may take time but it’s worth the investment!
