GTD is a time-management method that helps people get organized and stay focused on their tasks.
1. Why you might need GTD in your life
Here’s a great example: “Millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.”
2. How to practice GTD in real life
- Capture: Write down what’s in your mind
- Clarify: Know your expectation and clarify an actionable “Next Action”
- Organize: Add your “Next Action” to a to-do list
- Reflect: Check frequently for updates
- Engage: Decide what to do now
Tip: “Next Action” is the kind of action that can be executed without any further thinking.
Your expectation: have a good holiday
Your “Next Action”:
❌ Wrong: take a trip to Thailand
✔️ Correct: check for an air ticket to Thailand on booking.com
3. What role does TickTick play here
- Capture: Add a task named “holiday plan” to Inbox
- Clarify: Plan a trip to Thailand would be great and actionable. Break it into several small tasks(book tickets, search for a hotel, contact local friends, etc)
- Organize: Sort each task to its list (transports, accommodation, etc.)
- Reflect: Check back every day and make necessary changes
- Engage: Start booking an air ticket now
