Information worker and the amount of information, work and stress.Information worker and the amount of information, work and stress.

It has been a while since I blogged something. The main reason is that I was very busy. But being very busy is not a good reason. We will always be busy, all of our lives. I was just caught in the busy-trap. Busy doing what? Well, Iat this moment I am contracted in a large company in the energy market as a Domain Expert SharePoint (since 2008), and I run (with an associate) a company in IT (Retail, business to business). I am also married and have got kids. So what was I actually doing? To be honest, sometimes I didn’t knew what I was doing, or what I was not doing and should be doing. Does this sound familiar?

A long time ago, a good friend of mine named Marcel told be some things about Getting things done and 7 habits of highly effective people. At that moment, I wasn’t ready for that life changing information, so I did absolutely nothing with it.

A few months ago I read Getting things done , ‘The Art of Stress-Free Productivity’ from David Allen. This was that a life changing moment. After reading this book, I started looking on how to implement this in my life. This was definitely not a simple assignment..

Anyhow, these moments were life changing and therefore I will share this very useful information with you :-)

I’ll do my best (and added it as a Next Action to my action list) to post on a daily base something about why this thing matters for me.It has been a while since I blogged something.
