Circumstances – getting things done!

People always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them. – George Bernard Shaw

This morning I finished GETTING THINGS DONE by David Allen. The above is a quote from his book. I must say, this book should be compulsory for everyone working. Full stop. Not only Managers, MDs – no everyone. Buy it directly at Amazon!

It shows the right way and attitude on how to be organised, efficient and effective. No more time wasting unless you have too much spare time on you hands 🙂 And, you will – compared to your current status. You will love this book and the techniques shown.

Also, there are Seminars in London:

Two different seminars are being presented.

The first, GTD Mastering Work Flow, presented on October 23, offers greater focus on actual implementation of the GTD methodology. This seminar is very tactically oriented – how to get quick control using the fundamental thinking process and the five phases of work flow mastery.  Led by senior David Allen company consultants, this seminar will provide insights and guidelines for implementation of tools and techniques in your daily workflow.  Learn more about this seminar series here.

The second seminar, GTD The Roadmap, is a one day event led by David Allen, on October 24, to introduce you to Getting Things Done concepts and principles.  GTD The RoadMap offers a higher level, more theoretical overview of the GTD concepts.  The seminar will focus on the whole picture of the self-consulting process, including prioritizing from multiple horizons, applying the core productivity principles, and making change stick, also offering the opportunity to see David Allen live.  You can learn more about the GTD The Roadmap seminar series here.

Enjoy. Volker!
