Getting Organized is Not Enough
Published on November 04, 2013 by Francisco Sáez
Getting organized is just one part of the equation. What else do you need to move things forward?
“Control without perspective is micromanagement, and perspective without control is crazy-making.” ~ David Allen
Getting organized is relatively simple. Many believe that it is only a matter of choosing a good task management application and start to put things there. But then you have to maintain that organization. Most of these people jump from one application to another every time they start to lose control, believing they will find a tool that will provide them the balance their life needs. Good luck with it.

Appearance does not only affect usability of things but also their performance. Don't you believe it?
“How we think cannot be separated from how we feel.” ~ Donald A. Norman
An Internet user just needs 50 milliseconds to form a first impression of the page he is visiting. It is even more interesting to know that, after a much longer lasting exposure to that page, the final impression hardly changes compared to that first and brief impression.
GTD is not the center of your productivity
Published on October 24, 2013 by David Torné Llorens
David Torne thinks about how to get to those places that are further away from GTD.
It seems that this contradicts the approach of this blog, and it may be true. GTD gives us the guidelines to manage our daily activities and organize our business in the medium to long term. However, it does not reach every place, and the user is responsible for conquering these plots in the shade.

How routines can boost your productivity
Published on October 14, 2013 by Francisco Sáez
Like it or not, routines are where you spend more time. Take advantage of this to improve your productivity.
Let’s face it. During a typical day, how many things do you do that are more or less repetitive and how many things do you do that are really new? Yes, you have to accept it; routines are the foundation of your life. You do not only eat, brush your teeth or sleep routinely. You work within a schedule and, though subconsciously, you follow certain protocols in the order and way you carry out your tasks.
The Time Management Matrix
Published on October 07, 2013 by Francisco Sáez
Where should we focus our attention? How do we decide where we should spend our time?
Dwight D. Eisenhower, thirty-fourth president of the U.S., thought that we should devote attention and time to our activities in accordance with their importance and urgency. He said, rightly, that we are too inclined to focus on the things that are both important and urgent, generating a reactive behavior based on what has to be done right now, instead of focusing on the things that are important and not urgent, which would be the basis of a more strategic behavior based on long-term goals.
