What is GTD

What is GTD

You struggle with busy schedules, full email inboxes and overcrowded todo lists.

You're good at your job, but you gradually drown in all the details and hassle. It becomes increasingly difficult to maintain overview.

  • Continuously more work is coming your way.
  • You experience a lack of overview
  • The number of projects and items is so vast that things are starting to fall through the cracks.
  • Mistakes are made, like promises not kept. Sometimes with serious consequences even though originating from seemingly innocent mistakes.
  • You experience more stress than you should.
  • Email inbox(es) are no longer empty at the end of each day.
  • You find it increasingly difficult to plan your work and are frequently working overtime.
