Mondays are productivity days at SimpleProductivity blog.
Personal productivity has gone mainstream, and is riddles with jargon and abbreviations that are often hard to decipher. Here are some of the more common ones:
Common Abbreviations in Productivity
7 Habits refers to Stephen Covey’s book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. It was a ground-breaking look at being effective, that is, doing the right things.
GTD refers to David Allen’s book, Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity. This is where he describes his system of getting things out of your head and into a trusted system to be dealt with appropriately. This theory is partially about efficiency, but the effectiveness section is sketchy.
Mark Foster’s book, Do It Tomorrow and Other Secrets of Time Management, at first glance looks like a method of procrastination. He takes a different approach to productivity in working with finite chunks of information during a given time period to eliminate the need for ordering tasks.
