Would like to turn my efforts and focus from day-to-day firefighting and move to more cohesive managed environment and system in which change is anticipated and analyzed. Theses changes can be made in a controlled way, and hopefully with very little disruption, through a GTD method. In a better organized environment that I can easily predict, and manage, I'll be able to demonstate my value to any business in new and meaningful ways. Working on my current project; The extraordinary operational data collected by having a smooth service desk, can be leveraged to make positive changes in infrastructure, process, and most importantly, cost. After attending the meetup in August, I think I found a group of folks that follow the GTD philosophy for the same values I seek of having a solid system of intuitive solutions. Strong working relationships are the foundation of success. Knowledge, when shared thoughtfully, is the most powerful force in large organizations.
I am still working through the best seller "Getting Things Done The Art of Stress-Free Productivity". As I work in IT, I am looking for the best way to stay organized, at the office, on the go, and at home.
My Roommate, Bryant Smith. He has totally bought into the system, and sold me on the idea of getting better organized.
Over the past 10 years, I've established very productive relationships. When I assist clients with IT issues, I immediately am able to put some fixes in place and create a road map of short term wins and mid- and long-term fixes.
