GTD was designed to help you keep track of tasks, ideas, and projects. It can be easy to get hung up on those to-dos and checklists, but this method will free up your mind. This way you can focus your attention on more creative thinking.

The GTD system is made up of 5 main steps:

  1. Capture
  2. Process
  3. Organize
  4. Review
  5. Engage

In this lesson, we begin elaborating on each of these steps, such as how to capture all of the ideas and information that come flooding your way throughout the day so that you don’t miss anything important.
