Managing yourself: how to be productive with your time

Managing yourself: how to be productive with your time

Last week, I gave a seminar on ‘Managing yourself: how to be productive with your time’. I’d been invited by CILIP Career Development Group London and South East branches to deliver a session on this topic which expanded on my presentation from Internet Librarian International 2012 on Productivity for Librarians. The focus of this seminar was much more practical in nature so rather than just talking through some of the tools I use and the way I implement the Getting Things Done (GTD) methodology, we went through each stage of the GTD methodology and considered how it could be implemented for each participant through individual activities, group activities, and discussion.

The slides are embedded below and available on Slideshare: http://www.slideshare.net/joeyanne/managing-yourself-how-to-be-productive-with-your-time
