Readings and links, for later
Published on December 05, 2013 by David Torné Llorens
What to do with all the links, posts and articles we'd like to read, without cutting our job.
We go through life as if we were a fishing trawler, sweeping away all we find interesting in the social networks and the web. Knowledge does not take any place, right? Maybe it does not occupy a physical space but it takes time to decide what to do with the collected info. GTD, combined with apps like FacileThings and Evernote, allows us to collect everything, making us insatiable hoarders.
The Art of Making Decisions
Published on December 02, 2013 by Francisco Sáez
The decision making process is not as simple as it seems. Countless forces pull in different directions.
In this article I am not going to explain how you should make your decisions (who the hell am I?). Simply, I will present you a set of facts and theories about the decision making process. The idea is that if you know the process by which you make your own decisions, you will be able to make them more effectively. Also, let it be said, knowing how the human’s mind works in this type of processing also gives you the ability to influence others’ decisions (if you work in advertising, marketing or sales, this should be of your interest.)
GTD and Living in the Second Quadrant
Published on November 25, 2013 by Francisco Sáez
Living in the Second Quadrant is the most effective way to manage your life. GTD helps you do this.
Stephen Covey says in his book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People that the so-called time management has evolved from a very first generation of people who only had to-do lists where they crossed tasks off when completed, to the current generation, where people do not try to manage time itself but themselves, by focusing on those activities that are important with regard to their life and values (you can read about this generational evolution in this other article on self-management) .
What is "The Pursuit of Mastery" about?

Why an ebook on FacileThings and what you will find in it.
A few months ago, a Hyperink Press editor got in touch with me and offered me to do a beautiful ebook based on the best content from this blog. Apparently, they had thoroughly researched the blog, and both the subjects and the quality of our articles fit pretty well in their company’s mission: to bring readers blogs with good content—often difficult to find—so they can learn about a topic in a fun and fast way.

FacileThings: Improving the Process stage
Published on November 14, 2013 by Francisco Sáez
We have updated the Process section and added new features to help you make decisions.
Why can’t I directly send an action to a list while I am capturing it? Why can’t I freely drag and drop my actions into the different lists? These are common questions that some new FacileThings users coming from other applications ask.
The Number One Habit you Need: Self-discipline
Published on November 11, 2013 by Francisco Sáez
Control your willpower and you will able to achieve any goal you set.
“With self-discipline most anything is possible.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt
You have probably heard of the famous experiment that was conducted a few decades ago in a laboratory at Stanford University: a few children were left alone in a room and were told that they could have a candy at that time or wait until the experimenter came back, in which case they could have two candies. The experiment did not end there, since the social and cognitive skills of these children were tested some years later. The result was that, at least academically, the ones who had delayed instant gratification obtained better scores and were more popular than those who had not.
