Every developer eventually reaches a point where writing code just isn’t enough. And the most common question that comes to our mind is, “how do I deal with and keep track of non-project activities?”.
I’ve been struggling with this topic and after a few conversations with my work colleagues and team leader, so I decided to look into GTD (Getting Things Done) by David Allen. This book will guide you through the difficult process of time management at work and in your personal life, which helped me a lot. Try it and tell me what you get out of it.
We’ve also compiled some great GTD-themed tips and of course news you need to know!
