Por via da P, tenho em minhas mãos o livro Getting Things Done - The Art of Stress-Free Productivity, de David Allen, leitura dos os proximos tempos, para análise de conteúdo e de percepção deste sistema. De forma simples, por GTD designa-se o princípio de que uma pessoa precisa de tirar as tarefas de sua mente e registrá-las em algum lugar. Desta forma, a mente fica livre do trabalho de lembrar de tudo o que necessita ser feito e pode concentrar-se no que realmente é preciso para executar essas tarefas.
Deixo uma descrição mais pormenorizada sobre o GTD... e se sentirem curiosidade, avancem, acho que ficaremos todos a ganhar.
