Get Things Done (GTD) 
The primary reason we don’t get 
things done is STUFF. 
“Stuff is anything you have allowed into your 
psychological or physical world that doesn’t belong 
where it is, but for which you haven’t yet determined 
the desired outcome and the next action step.” 
STUFF keeps you up at night. 
STUFF gives you STRESS.
GTD Workflow
Stay Focused 
Pomodoro Technique 
1.Decide on your task 
2.Set a timer for 25m 
3.Work until timer dings; record 
4.Take a short break (3-5m) 
5.Every 4 pomodori, take a 
longer break (15-30m) 
Pro Tip: 
Check out tomatoi.st!
Build Habits 
Don’t Break the Chain! 
1.Pick a goal 
2.Mark off the days on which you 
work on that goal

days as a motivator 
Pro Tip: 
Check out dontbreakthechain.com
