3 New Takes On How To Get Things Done (Better)

Do you wonder about ways to be more productive, efficient and better in managing your time?

Here are three new-ish pieces of content that have both caught my attention this week and provide very valuable advice on the topics of productivity and organization:

1. The Art of Stress-Free Productivity: David Allen at TEDxClaremontColleges. This is a great TEDx talk from the master of productivity, David Allen (author of Getting Things Done and Making It All Work).

2. Bullet Journal. Into notebooks and shying away from smartphone apps like Evernote to keep track of your tasks and work? Bullet Journal may be the solution for you (and all you need is a notebook and a pen).

3. The Authentic Swing. This is name of the latest book from Steven Pressfield (The War of Art, Do The Work, etc...). It's a book about how he wrote his smash hit, The Legend of Bagger Vance. If you click on the link, he is offering a very special 3-part video series called, Foolscap, that is a great series about how to create a story and framework in a very simple (and, yes, productive) way.

Now, over to you: what are you best tips and tricks for productivity?

    First and foremost, I use the pomodoro technique as much as possible. I use Trello for collaborative workflow management, Feedly for reading, and sticky notes on my desktop for "to-do" lists. I just recently started using IFTTT. For example, I made it so every time I hit "save for later" in Feedly, that article is sent to a notebook in Evernote.
