Basic GTD: Emptying the Inbox
Published on May 23, 2013 by Francisco Sáez
To achieve a stress-free productivity, emptying the inbox should be a daily activity.
In GTD, the inbox does not refer only to your e-mail inbox. It is a broader concept that includes all the things you have collected in different ways: tasks you have to do, ideas you have thought of, notes, bills, business cards, etc…
8 Things to Do in your Waiting Times
Published on May 20, 2013 by Francisco Sáez
Do not you get bored when you are waiting for someone? Do you mind? If you are prepared, waiting times can be very productive.
Unfortunately, we all have to waste some of our precious time waiting somewhere. At the airport, at the doctor’s office, at the bank, at the postal office, in a appointment with an unpunctual person… There is a good amount of waiting times we do not choose or plan, so that when they arrive, we just try to spend the time the best possible.
How NOT to be a master of productivity
Published on May 16, 2013 by Francisco Sáez
Mastery of personal productivity is achieved by dominating the concepts and workflow, rather than the tools.
Recently I wrote a post about one of the main factors that motivates people to get things done: the pursuit of mastery. Or, what is the same, trying to get the greatest possible knowledge about what we really like to do (it’s hard to keep the necessary motivation to improve on something we do not like, even if it’s what feeds us).

In a world of abundance we must know how to distinguish the necessary from the unnecessary.
“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.” ~ Hans Hofmann, German painter
Minimalism was an art movement that peaked in the early ’60s. By eliminating all the dispensable features and forms from the objects in works of art, it was intended to highlight their true essence. In short, it was a style that sought maximum effect through a minimal number of elements, that also had to be as simple as possible.

How to prioritize your actions according to the stuff that really matter.
What should I do next? That is the big question, and knowing the answer is one of the secrets to keep your business under control while you progress towards your goals. Any self-respecting GTD application, including FacileThings, allows you to filter your actions by the energy level, the context and the time needed to get them done, so you can obtain a reduced list of potential next actions. However, the power is not in the tool, but in the work and reflection you made about “what you wanted to do and where you wanted to go.”

The pursuit of mastery is a key motivational behavior in today's world.

Convergence is the state of being where everything in our lives is in alignment.
“Convergence is the state of being where everything in our lives is in alignment.
We have good relationships with family and close friends, we’re excited about work, we’re in good health, we do more or less what we want to every day, and we know we’re making a difference in the world.
