Last year I was on the hunt for a new “to do” app. What I had was simple and free but wasn’t really working for me. I had an unwieldy to do list. I couldn’t seem to get both work and life tasks done. I knew I needed a more powerful organizational system, but didn’t know what to do. After some searches on the internet, I learned about the GTD method, which made sense to me–breaking down projects into tasks. Then I discovered Nozbe, a web/desktop/mobile app based on that system. It was pricey, but I took the plunge.
Fast forward a year. Time to renew. I’d been happy with Nozbe, but wondered if I could find something cheaper and continue on. So that’s what I did. Only it wasn’t quite the same. I resigned myself to it anyway. At least until my husband started using Nozbe at work and bought David Allen’s book, Getting Things Done.
I read the book and at my husband’s encouragement once again paid for Nozbe. I couldn’t be happier! My productivity has gone up, my stress level down.Then the other day I heard about Nozbe founder Michael Sliwinski’s 10 part productivity course. I watched each of the 5 minute videos, which encapsulated the GTD method as well as providing insight into how Nozbe accomodates this system. I loved it! I even learned a couple of news ways I could use Nozbe to further streamline my system of work.
If you’ve ever had questions about the Getting Things Done (GTD) system, I encourage you to click here to watch these videos. They are a quick way to get an overview of the system and start taming your to do list. And you might even end up a Nozbe user too!
