Karen Mardahl and John Kearney will give a workshop on “Keeping up with life! Or, how to put ‘Getting Things Done’ into practice”
Perhaps you have the perfect method to manage your work and obligations, but can it cope with the unexpected or help you plan for the future? New boss, clients or management practices. Illness. Job loss. Stress. Changing career or job advancement. Learning new skills in addition to doing your current job.
Karen and John will introduce the concept of getting things done (GTD) as it applies to today’s technical communicator. Then, participants will have hands-on activities (also pre-conference!) to start making some getting-things-done tweaks to their routines, both at work and at home. Takeaways include
- Testing your need for GTD
- Exercises to understand the most important concept of “Next Action” and the concept of “Closing the Loop”
- Demo of tools that support GTD
- GTD Tips and tricks
- The assurance that “your way” is still the best, especially after it’s GTD-charged!
