If you’re not famil­iar with GTD, it’s “the ground­break­ing work-life man­age­ment sys­tem by David Allen that pro­vides con­crete solu­tions for trans­form­ing over­whelm and uncer­tainty into an inte­grated sys­tem of stress-free pro­duc­tiv­ity,” accord­ing to David Allen’s web­site. Allen lays out five key phases of the GTD process, which include 1) Capture/Collect, 2) Process, 3) Orga­nize, 4) Review, and 5) Doing.

The key factor in order to be successful is to persevere, don't be held back by something, have high expectations, your goal should be to do your best, LEARN  from your experiences, and use the knowledge to do better in the future. According to this article, success is more about learning than proving how smart you are

Catherine Rocheleau's curator insight, October 31, 2013 7:31 PM

Business owners and managers are well served when they hone their public speaking skills.  Good delivery engages your audience and ensures your message is heard.   There is nothing worse than sitting in the audience when the speaker isn't in touch with the audience and delivers their message poorly.

Thanks for sharing .  Some good tips here. Recently I attended a presentation through Sliding.ca.  My takeaway...One slide One message. Emphasize the verbal & Downplay the visual.  You should stand out over your slides!

Its advisable to also know solution focussed techniques - celebrate successes, know what you want to achieve, take small steps to get there, imagineer your desired future - to balance these steps as some groups can get drawn down into the problem and unable to get out.

On the Persistence of Bad Luck (and Good)

On the Persistence of Bad Luck (and Good) | Communications | Scoop.it

We’ve all had the experience—over and over all the time. You go down to the street to wait for the bus (the train, the subway, the boat); you know that buses come roughly every 10 minutes, so you expect to wait about 5 minutes (arriving, on average, in the middle of the between-buses interval). But in fact, we all know that almost always you have to wait longer than that! Is this an illusion we’ve developed over the centuries because we believe in the “persistence of bad luck,” or is it, perhaps, something real?

 

It is, in fact, a real phenomenon, and this result can even be proved mathematically. Because you arrived after the last bus has left, your overall waiting time is, on average, longer than half the average interval of 10 minutes.
