Collecting the GTD (Getting Things Done) and Productivity Posts into this thread to help you find some of the best tools I've found in doing my day job.
"The point is, in the big picture, no one is going to look after your career for you, but you." --from Erin Malone on Boxes and Arrows in 2004
So much of our daily task is paying attention to what is important and ignoring the noise. From unsolicited calls, emails and direct mail, to Facebook ads and the soon-to-arrive Twitter-Ads, we are being inundated with calls to action. Buy this new product, you can look slimmer with this, this will make you rich, this will make you famous, this will make you irresistibly sexy. And yet, each day the task list seems infinite. Kids, work, play, health, food... It comes and it comes with a constant tenacity. And if we don't pay attention to what we are doing, we may find we are staring at a bright shiny object, website, advertisement and not really clear on what we should do next.
