How fast time flies, a new year begins! You must have many new targets in this year no matter what occupation you are, such as get a higher score in a new term; get a promotion and an increase in salary; plan to travel abroad and so forth. To some degree, it is beneficial to set targets because they may stimulate you to work harder all the way.
Whereas, if you can make good use of your time, you can get double the results. The most famous time management theory is GTD (getting things done) which is put forward by David Allen. Admittedly, this theory solves many people’s problems and improves their work efficiency. David suggests that only people work without pressure can they have a good performance.
This theory states that you can get things done in these steps. To begin with, empty your brain. It says that you can make a list of all tasks or events in your brain. And give up and forget those are meaningless. Secondly, make a to-do list. Be clear about the importance of your tasks and carry them out one by one. Thirdly, you’d better keep a track of the progress of your tasks in case you forget them later. At last, after you finish a task, remember to check a while because to err is human.
Generally, people will choose a note book, mobile phone or a software program to write to-do lists. Efficient Calendar is one of the programs which are designed to implement GTD. Efficient Calendar is an excellent task manager and schedule reminder that allows you to well organize your to-do lists, events, meetings, appointments and more.
Make a plan ahead so that you can know what to next when you open this software. Besides, this software will remind you the start time or due time of tasks as your setting. Also you can track the progress of them. Once you finish a task, you can mark a tick or record the progress of them. In addition, there is a document editor just like MS-Word which allows you to take notes or write detail plans about tasks or events.
