Guest post at Get Rich Slowly
J.D. over at Get Rich Slowly asked me for a guest post on personal finance. What it turned out I wanted to talk about next, though, was productivity--and in particular, my evolving experience with Getting Things Done.
I spent many years working for various companies that, like most businesses, were more or less dysfunctional. They were places where priorities constantly shifted, where every day brought a new emergency, and where managers and peers might show up at any time with something urgent that needed my attention. When I became a full-time writer, I discovered that I needed different ways to manage my time than the ones that had worked when I was an employee. Interestingly, the different ways that seem to work best for me aren’t new at all — they’re the old classic tools of time management.
