Time Management Tip: Sometimes doing less gets more done.

I was reading an article from David Allen, author of the Time Management Book, Getting Things Done (GTD) and the take away message for me was:

Sometimes we need to do less so we can get things done.

In the article (see link below) David says that to get to his ideal state of mind & emotion he does not work harder and faster.

He creates his best state of mind by letting go, by getting quiet and just being.

I believe David’s insight is the key to effective time management in 2013 & beyond. No longer can we do everything or catch-up. No amount of working harder and faster will get you there. At times we must slow down and make choices about what to do and what not to do.

David Allen’s food for thought
