Zen to Done (ZTD): The Simple Productivity System

Zen Habits is a website by the author of the book Zen to Done, Leo Babauta. When I need a jump-start on productivity, ZTD can be a useful way to get me back into the flow. As the website describes, it’s a compliment to, not  replacement for, the GTD system.

Franklin Covey

For approximately twelve years I lugged around my trusty Franklin paper planner. I would have carried it into the shower with me every morning if it would have survived. ‘Frankly,’ this was great for organization, but bad for my spine! Since giving up my daily paper planner pages, I still haven’t found a whole, pre-fab system that works as well for me. The daily schedule, task list, and journal page all together at my finger tips makes for an awesome system that has been surprisingly challenging to duplicate in digital land. I’ve often thought of going back to the paper planner, and just down-sizing: from “classic” to “compact,” or from daily planner pages to weekly. However, it’s pricey, paper-intensive, and there are few recycled paper options. (It’s good to see their ring-bound planner pages are all 30% recycled content.)

It takes research to find out what will work best for you. I suggest checking out the 100% recycled weekly ring-bound planner pages.

The Brain

This fun program is a great alternative to hierarchical file management systems. We’re often frustrated in storing and finding things because we’re forced to choose one, single bucket in which to tuck it away. The Brain stores files and information more like our actual neural network: any number of words can trigger a “thought.”

Further, the Brain can be used with the Getting Things Done system, and it includes a calendar.

Wake Up Productive, Online Course

Eben Pagan offers a lot of online courses that have to do with running an online business. Wake Up Productive I appreciate in particular because he maintains a solid focus on personal health and well-being throughout. Rather than a lot of list-making and such, he recommends very practical daily practices to truly maximize productivity, and supplies frameworks for implementing them.

Even if you don’t take on the whole course package, it’s worth it to sign up on the list just to watch the free videos, which supply you with a lot of great tips for optimizing management of energy and time.
