重读《结果第一》:书越读越薄

记得在中学的时候语文课老师讲过这样的一句话:“在大家看书的时候,先是越看越厚,然后会越看越薄

当时的理解是:我会看很多很多的书,但是会随着时间的推移沉淀下来很少很少的一部分知识。

当时感觉知识就像从指缝间溜走的流沙,从身边滑过的时间,一种无力感油然而生。。。

但是我通过这么多年的观察和经验总结,我变得乐观了,书是越看越薄没错,但是“淘尽黄沙始见金”,掌握在自己手中的都是精髓。

重读《结果第一》之前,为了保证重读的质量我在纸上写出了这次重读的目标,其中有一条就是:尝试提炼GTD的精髓

(这里面用到了我以前提到的两种方法:1.主动阅读-Forgetful-system       2.Boss项的设立-完成目标就成功,没有完成就失败)

我问自己这样的问题:

  • 为什么需要Next Action???
  • 为什么需要Context???
  • 为什么GTD能让我们更高效???
  • 为什么需要“2分钟法则”???
  • 我认真履行了“自己对自己的承诺”了吗???
  • 中西GTD有什么背景上的不同???
  • 如何将GTD个性化或者私有化???

有些问题我找到了答案,有些问题的答案还在努力的寻找中,但是每次思考这些问题,都增强了我将GTD进行到底的信心,每次思考这些问题,都对GTD的理念有了新的理解。

GTD并不是一本书《搞定》(《getting things done》)而是一种生活方式(life style)

有些朋友也在思考类似的问题,他们让我重读《结果第一》的时候更有效率,感谢他们。

 

“Getting it out of your head” would be a close second.

To my mind, everything follows from those two ideas:

— you use contexts, because they reflect the thinking you’ve already done
about what resources you need

— you use next actions, because they are the most discrete, defineable way
to stage the activity you’ve already thought through

— you use a projects list, because you need an inventory of the stuff
you’ve got to think about

— you use a tickler, because you sometimes need to defer thinking without
losing an idea

— you use a waiting for list, because you need to keep other things in
play, but off the field, without further thinking

— you use a someday/maybe list, to move ideas out of your head and queue
them up for possible “thinking” and “doing”

— you keep an empty inbox, because unknown “stuff” creates doubt that
you’ve thought about the things you need to

— you keep a hard landscape calendar, because “bogus” scheduling undermines
your clarity about priorities in the moment

— you collect, because that’s how you keep stuff out of your head

— you process, because that how you front-load thinking

— you organize, because it wastes time to re-collect or re-process

— you review, because you need to maintain the right balance between
thinking and doing

The Weather Man release — you do, because that’s what get’s stuff done
