In the beginning of this project we read the book ”Getting things done” by David Allen. The book is all about how we need to get ”things” out of our mind, organize/record our the things/thoughts and get them done. The first part of the book is pretty out-of-date where he guides the reader through the process of organizing for example your working place with file folders, labelers etc. So that when you come up with something it is easier to get things done.
Even if what he describes is out of date, I find the message about having things organized very helpful during stressful periods. Going into an exam period or a rough period of work you will save a lot of time and energy if your home is clean, the frigde is filled and you have printed materials needed. I try to take Sundays for preparing all this for the coming week and it has definitely worked out well for me. Coming home tired and late to a clean home knowing that you have breakfast for the next morning is desirable.
