#blogjune Day six – keeping organised

Thanks to Rachel for providing an idea for today’s #blogjune post. This is my response to keeping organised. You may also like to check out a recent post about keeping brilliant ideas in sight and creating a visual way to see all ‘the balls’ in the air (projects and commitments). There...

The key to getting things done

Many will find I’m a huge fan of David Allen and his “Getting things done” (GTD) methodology. It works, the principles adaptable to any format or device. Well, I also follow David Allen on Twitter for the pint-sized pieces of wisdom he tweets every so often. I found this gem...
