This isn’t the kind of thing I usually share on my blog (I don’t tend to talk about work stuff here all that much), but I wanted to tell you all about this online course I took on SkillShare, called Get Stuff Done Like a Boss. It’s a class built around the Getting Things Done methodology.
For the past year or so, I’ve been trying to figure out better tools to help me stay on top of my workload and manage my email inbox (the amount of emails I receive every day is totally overwhelming). I tried a number of great email tricks, but I never really got to the root of the problem – things were sitting in my email inbox, instead of being filtered out into actions or saved as resources.
Also, I was often thinking about things that needed to be done, but wasn’t consistently writing them down, so my to-do list plagued my brain. I got quite stressy at times, and thought I had finally found my limit and needed to dial back the amount of work I was doing.
NOT TRUE! I can totally handle all my stuff, I just needed more reliable systems in place to collect, process, and do it all. It’s been about 3 weeks since I started the Get Stuff Done Like a Boss class (which consists of short video lessons and some PDF resources) and I’m a total convert to the Getting Things Done method.
I’m now much more productive than before, and I’m honestly less stressed. I get more done in less time. Of course, it took a while to learn and adopt the methodology, but it really did make a difference.
(This is not a sponsored post – I honestly just love this class and wanted to share it with you)
