I haven’t read the apparently groundbreaking book, “Getting Things Done” by David Allen, the bible for those who strive to be that much more organised, but I have started reading posts on 43folders, a website dedicated to productivity and time management tips, “life hacks” and other ways to reduce stress in your life. I came across this brilliant adaptation of that well known prayer, GTD-style:
The GTD Prayer
Our lifehacks, which art in contexts,
Inbox zero be thy aim.
Thy Kinkless done.
Thy Mind Sweep fun, in @work as it is in @honeydo.
Give us this day our next action.
And forgive us our open loops, as we forgive those who delete our email.
And lead us not into web surfing.
Deliver us from IM.
For thine is the Moleskine, the Project and the Due Date
If you are looking for little ways to become more efficient and cut your stress levels (or perhaps even shave a little off), I recommend 43folders and the 43folders podcast (which is both brief and informative).
