This got me thinking.
Maybe it’ll get you thinking too.
I’ve always been interested in how people, successful and not-so-much, approach and handle goals. So interested in fact I think I read up on and tried just about every major process and tool out there. Here is a list of the some:
- Getting Things Done (GTD)
- 43 Folders – kind of GTD
- Omnifocus (Still using this)
- Remember the milk
- Evernote to dos
That is just a few that I could think of off the top of my head. All of them, regardless of being a process, or a tool are just fine. I’m sure they work well for people and like I said I still use Omnifocus. But, for me, it seems as though something is missing. So I started writing and started trying to come up with a way to express what I was thinking. I think I have run into a few insights and have yet to figure out a lot of what I need to.
For now I’m calling it The Simple Framework. Because, one, I think it should be simple and, two, to remind me that it should be. If you are interested in following along. I’m tracking my thoughts and what I come up with at http://achieveyourgoalshq.com. Anyhow, it is fun for me to try to figure out exactly what it is I think is missing and get it out there. Maybe it’ll turn in to something useful or at least help a person or two.
