Capture It

I'm currently listening to the abridged audiobook version of Getting Things Done.

So far the information is practical and simple, which explains the great success of the book and the GTD system.

One of the cool techniques that I have innately cultivated over the years that the book covers is that of capturing

Likening our brains to computers with limited processing power, the fundamental idea behind capturing ideas is the need to record action items, to do lists and fleeting thoughts.

This can be done in many ways, whether post it notes, digital voice recorders, sending yourself an email, or leaving yourself a voicemail.

The point is to get it out of your mind so that you're not bogging down your processing power...... in turn boosting your productivity, energy and creativity.

Wishing you continued success!
