Productivity, by Ron Conway

I’ve tried every system to enhance my productivity. I’ve read “Getting Things Done” by David Allen a few times. I’ve used Evernote, Wunderlist and all the others. I read that email was a bad place to process “to do” and I’ve also read that it’s the best place.

I finally settled on a system. I asked Ron what he does. It’s pretty simple. In the morning, he sets three things to do for the day. If he does all three, then it’s a good day. If he doesn’t, then it’s a bad day.

It’s been a decent system so far - about 15 days in. The binary approach can be pretty judgmental but it’s been effective so far. Tactically, I take 3 things from my Asana and label them with “@TODAY.” If I get them done, it’s a good day. If not, then it’s a bad day. Simple but not easy. We’ll see how long it lasts

A more advanced level of this approach is “Agile Results” described here: (link).
