Working from Home with GTD - Next Action Associates
Working from home presents unique challenges for all of us. GTD® best practices can help improve your productivity and focus, reducing the feelings of stress and overwhelm while bringing a real sense of control and calm to your life.

Meetings, meetings, meetings

In an environment which finds many of us working from home, how can you improve your virtual meetings? Here are some top tips on how to make your virtual meetings more effective when you are working remotely, including better team communication and collaboration and personal productivity.

Interruptions from colleagues

Transform the way you work with the GTD Agenda list. Find out how an agenda list for co-workers or colleagues you communicate with frequently will help remind you of what needs to be discussed with that person, and why the ‘Waiting For’ list is a game-changer in helping you to keep track of the work items you are waiting for someone else to move forward on.

Fighting “fires” all the time

Here’s an insight into the Getting Things Done® (GTD®) Three-Fold Nature of Work model which helps you to clarify the type of work that you have appearing on a day-to-day basis, and how you can become much more effective by defining and refining the way you work.

Having the mental space to concentrate

If you have too much on your mind then you’re not alone. Most of us are trying to store everything in our heads and it’s just not possible to be effective or creative when we are trying to use our brains as useful reminders. This tip will give you the best life hack you’ll ever need – the GTD mindsweep.

Achieving work/life balance

When working from home, it can be challenging to achieve a true ‘work-life balance’ as the boundaries between work and home are blurred. With more distractions and less real distinction between work and home life, it is not uncommon to feel out of control, anxious, and stressed about everything we have to juggle.

Switching focus all the time

While many of us are working from home, it can be hard to stay focused when the boundaries between work and home life are blurred. In this video, productivity expert Robert Peake provides a useful insight into how you can stay focused by utilising ‘context’ lists, a key part of the GTD methodology.

A weekly routine which helps you shut off ready for the weekend

Having a weekly ritual helps you to gain a holistic overview of your working week, shut off ready for the weekend, and feel more in control. Find out how the Getting Things Done® (GTD®) Weekly Review® can transform your working week and help you to relax ready for the weekend.
