I am super excited to be picked out to teach productivity soft skills to the MVP’s and Regional Directors attending MVP Community Connection in Madrid June 1st. For the past year I have developed my OneNote productivity framework that I still use and succeed with. By borrowing and combining known productivity methodology such as take back your life, Getting Things Done and the Pomodoro Technique, I will talk about stuff you already know, but still need to be reminded of.
Why OneNote? There are three factors that works well for me with OneNote
- Flexible notetaking tool, you can paste anything anywhere and it works great with touch and pen.
- Syncs across devices through OneDrive with great apps for all operating systems including mobile.
- OneNote tasks are key and works the same on all devices so I easily can complete a task on my mobile.
It is all about getting a finite list of all your activities and thoughts so that you can prioritize and execute on the most important task at any given time. And the result? A happy life, and a productive life :) People who have tested the framework report back that a burden has been taken off their shoulders. Turns out that your mind is for having ideas, not holding them as David Allen says. By dumping everything in your head, you free up space to relax, enjoy the moment and focus on your current task at hand.
