I have implemented 2 x systems - one for personal life and one for professional life. They are working well and I have read most of the book and it has honestly changed my life for the better because I used to never be able to relax on a Sunday without feeling guilty that I should be doing something else!Jessica Portway
I've always been into organisational methods, and I'd been learning about GTD for a while. However, being trained by Marcus Ramtohul made a world of difference - I was finally able to overcome that fear of creating a "someday/maybe" list and I finally understood the power of putting everything down in writing. I'd also never fully finessed my own personalised GTD "system". But, after being trained in the fundamentals of GTD by Marcus, I got it. I'm very happy with it now. Thank you Marcus!"Marcelo Cervone
Great course last Wednesday (22-Aug), it was very insightful and I took away a lot of good tips and tricks I will incorporate into my system to turbo charge my productivity.Christoph
…it is amazing already! 😊 Definitely helps me a lot and I am feeling a lot more organized and relaxed.Maximilian Renz
I need to do more weekly reviews but I can safely say that has had such a positive effect on my life already!
- My work inbox is clear and well organised into who the task relates to
- The mind sweep has kept my head clear of distracting small tasks which instead I capture and calendarise straight away
- I’m moving flats this week and my housemate has been blown away about how I’ve organised the van, boxes, cleaners, deposits, packing etc all thanks to the GTD system in my Evernote! Whenever he has a question on furniture or cleaners I have a link and next step for him within seconds.
Thanks so much again, worth its weight in gold and I’ve passed him over one of the books!
I'm using Trello for everything and things are so much more under control on a daily basis. Weekly review is the best part - and looking back over progress made over the last few weeks is also great. Especially with a few things that I've been putting off - like my email systems. Thank you again for a fantastic day and all you do.Ane A. Alamex
…many thanks for running the course in London this week. I had been hoping that at some point the natural planning model would be covered by a GTD course in the UK. It was an enjoyable and informative event that also provided a bit of a renewed impetus to my own GTD system. It was great to have someone with your experience running the course as there is a lot of value in the details and examples that you put around the core framework.Steve Leighton
The seminar has left me bursting with ideas which I have been capturing and thinking about… The seminar was a five star experience from beginning to end. Not just the hotel and facilities, but also the Next Action staff and course materials.Ryan
Just back to work today and have returned with a new approach to emails and tasks since attending the seminar, which I intend to stick to. I have never taken the time before to learn that Outlook speed keys exist – more hurry & less speed to date! All the tools and information provided are of help and I am already feeling an increased sense of perspective and calm this week.Tracey
I have been using GTD on my own for most of this year and have got a lot out of it. In fact the phone conversation I had with James before booking was worth the cost of the course on its own. In addition, I’m happy to say that I thought James was very good on the day and it was a very helpful and thought provoking course which will definitely change some of the things I’m doing. Of course I still need to implement what we covered!!!! Although I made a start this morning by learning how to turn off my email notifications!David Bates
Thank you so much for running the Level 1 workshop last week, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The day was well structured and I found the way you brought it all to life both helpful and engaging through practical examples and humour. Although I’ve used many of the tips and tricks of GTD for many years now, I’ve been self-taught and there’s only so much I can do to objectively assess and improve. The greatest take away from the day was to define the desired outcome for each project. This is something I have only previously considered for the really big projects. Wishing you and the team all the best, and thanks again for a wonderful day!Mike McCarthy
I have a clear desk, a clear mind and no stress. I have lots to do but I know where I am with everything (pretty much). I knew your training was going to be good and it was! It was exactly what I needed and will have a great impact on my mental health as well as my productivity!
Thank you so much!Havey Philpott
Really enjoyed the course and all that next action are contributing by bringing the GTD principles to life.Simon Mayes, London
I’m in so much more control of my work. I’m now confident that what I am doing at any moment is what I should be doing. My email inbox is often zero, and usually stays below about ten. If I receive a request to do something I know straight away whether I can do it, and how it will fit in with my other projects and actions. The best thing is, I’m no longer thinking (or worrying) about what I’m supposed to be doing at work – my mind has been freed up to focus on much more useful and better things.Sam Spencer
I just wanted to say thank you for inviting me to come along Thursday. Given the level of value I felt guilty I'd even questioned the price of training in my mind and my level of cynicism around it when I first was reading about it, wondering why it was different.
The training day has a combination of factors that made it really powerful for me; yes the concepts, theories and system are really useful and helpful, but when you combined that with the quality of the training materials and your delivery as a trainer it really impressed me as a whole. The way it's structured and delivered taps into a lot of theories around how people learn well.
Personally though, I came away with hope that I can find a better way to stress free existence as a business owner. I have always considered myself pretty organised and motivated, and most people that know me would say that, but I got so much from the course. There were ideas that had never occured to me, the way it combines as a system will be a step up - I viewed it as a way to become super-organised so no longer do I have to worry as much and keep a signficant amount in my head. It will probably mean I can take on a larger workload as I'm not holding it all in my head - I always find I hit a limit at about 5 projects, I can't take the distraction of focus as soon as there is more. But with this, I could manage more by dealing with things at the right time. I struggle to sleep when I'm busy and I see this as a way forward and being able to sleep again, even under greater pressures.
I am focusing on starting to set the system up today - and I know this is only an email - but I wanted to say a big thank you! I am so pleased I met you, and you have converted me to a fan - I'd love to take you out for lunch or dinner at least to say thank you and brainstorm how I can take this to my connections in the HR industry.Rebecca Stevens
Thanks so much for this – this is by far the best training I have ever been on in terms of how much I got out of it and how enjoyable the day was!Pippa Stanley
A simply brilliant way of prioritizing workflow, managing projects, and actually doing it all with far less stress.Peter Casebow
Learning about GTD was a revelation - it's helped me organise my life inside work out outside of it, leading to me being happier, more productive and less stressed. Judy was a great teacher - patient, reassuring and great at explaining the ideas behind the system. I am still using it months on and developing it, and would really recommend her class to anyone else - whether they think they need it or not, they will find a benefit.Louise Ridley
Thank you again for such an interesting and exciting day. It was genuinely inspiring and allowed me to make the leap of faith needed between reading and thinking about GTD to committing to it to work for me. I know many of the others there felt similarly and it was heartening to meet those who were implementing the system in their own work and lives.John Halford
I can thoroughly recommend the GTD approach to all who want to achieve more with less stress!James McBrien
I learned so much from both the book and you! I took the plunge 6 months ago to go full time with my stationery business based on my collages of nature. I have been very lucky as its been a huge success, I have gone from one shop selling my products to 60 shops including Fenwick and Fortnum & Mason, plus 4 international distributors and a London agent. The learning curve has been steep (and at times overwhelming!!) but throughout this journey it has been amazing to rely on the GTD structure.Eloise Hall
After training people usually go back to doing what they were doing before but the GTD training was different - our staff adopted the methodology with enthusiasm and we could see tangible change. Six weeks on, as a team we feel less overwhelmed with the volume of work that comes to us. We are now able to compartmentalise our tasks and we have all adopted google keep which we use daily..Deborah Loveluck
I really enjoyed the seminar. Material and group interaction were both good and I was impressed with Todd being able to get through the agenda pretty well on time. Good venue too.Chris Hocking
