Using Nimbus Note to get things done or Nimbus Note and GTD

GTD (Getting Things Done) is a time management method developed by a productivity consultant and  writer that authored a book by the same name, David Allen.

The main principle of GTD states – one should not overburden themselves with what needs to be done rather than just add it to the list. All attention should be focused on actually completing a single task at hand.

What a good rest is supposed to be like

Last time we talked about ways of escaping chronic fatigue. Today we’ll talk about resting the right way. Unfortunately, by far not everyone can even imagine what a quality rest is supposed to be like. This ignorance comes with very unfortunate consequences, as this “pseudo rest” does not take the load off your body and gives it no chance to restore itself.

How to focus on work?

It’s in our nature to get distracted from work. Some manage to concentrate on the process fully, while for others doing so is always a struggle. Today we’ll talk about helping yourself focus on work.

Let’s begin by acknowledging that we all have different abilities in terms of focusing attention. Someone is able to focus in mere minutes, while others have to work up to it for half an hour. It depends now only on our willpower but also on factors like how tired we are, whether we had enough sleep and if we are in full health at this time. We won’t be discussing everyone’s individual peculiarities here, as our recommendations have generic nature. You will be able to adapt them to your needs with your individual peculiarities taken into consideration.

Before recommending tools and ways to focus, we will stop at what can potentially distract and deviate us from work. At times just dealing with those factors can completely solve the problem. So, what are the distractions?

What’s burnout and how to treat it?

You probably heard a phrase “occupational burnout” more than once. The truth is, this is far more than just a clichĂ©, and since quite recently – a syndrome. Before burnout was not easy to come by, while these days it’s an essential part of our life. The hectic pace of life is to blame: we are compelled to work incessantly, effectively exhausting our emotional and physical resources.

So what’s a burnout anyway? Basically, it’s chronic stress at its final stage. It’s a state of physical and emotional exhaustion that leads to complete apathy, disappointment with life and yourself. This condition certainly requires proper treatment in order for a person to live a full life and function normally.
