Have you mastered productivity?

The 2Time Mgt Blog compares Tae Kwon Do Belt Colors to productivity mastery on eleven levels. Much knowledge can be gained from reading the individual posts. I was intrigued by the idea of seeing how to gradually improve skills on these different levels, and was motivated to create a pdf that compiles them. See the post on Putting it All Together for a sample personal development plan.

I seek to create order from the chaos of complex information. Join me at the Daily PlanIt to gain insights, inspiration, and information to increase skills for a better life. I unlock the power of teaching reading with phonics in the pursuit of literacy at www.phonicspow.com. In my spare time I explore books and movies, often choosing titles available on both screen and page.

    Thanks for the mention!

    A proposal to expound on these ideas can be seen (and voted on) at http://ww.changethis.com/proposals/1064

    Stay tuned, as I am hopeful that the Manifesto I proposed will put all the ideas together in one place. Hopefully, it will be readable…


  2. Thanks for the pointer. Those kinds of measures are useful as diagnostics. You might be interested in this tool, which I created to be more applied:

    Guess what? Your blog is amazing! I can’t remember when was the last time
    i’ve overcome such a good blog that almost all articles/posts were interesting
    and wouldn’t regret spending my time reading it. I hope you will keep up
    the great work you are doing here and i can enjoy my everyday read at your blog.

  5. Hmm… This is the first time I’ve ever encountered a list of productivity list. It actually makes me laugh now I don’t appear to have mastered much at all. I’m not a very organized person after all. Productivity comes to me in small doses and spontaneously, too! I guess this isn’t a good combination. But let me take a peek at that list again. I just might aspire to be a level or two higher.

    For implementing GTD you might try out my application for time management and productivity,


    You can use it to manage your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use

    checklists, schedules and a calendar.

    Hope you like it.
