Getting Things Done

Are you a list maker?  A mark thru kind of person?  One who has to draw a box just to put a check in it?  I’m finishing a book titled Getting Things Done by David Allen that is about… you guessed it, getting things done.  I have a ton of things to do at work ranging from changing sentences on webpages, redesigning sites and creating web applications from nothing.  Sometimes priorities get mixed up and it is easy to knock out the simple things from day to day.  There is no problem with this, but the larger projects get neglected.  I’m trying to be more diligent about spreading the work around so everything gets equal time and deadlines are met.  I will save Allen’s suggestions for another post, but wanted to get your view on the subject.

When you have a ton of things to do how do you keep up with everything that needs to be accomplished?  Do you just do it or do you have a system?

One thought on “Getting Things Done

  1. I am a list maker – and it helps tremendously. I also have a whiteboard at work that I put all the projects on that I’m currently working on, so that I never “forget” what I have to do because it’s right in front of me.
