Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity by David Allen inspired this picture. Getting Things Done (GTD) is something I strive for yet I remain a consistent underachiever in its fine arts. Hence the OGTD version: Outsects Getting Things Done. In OGTD, the practitioner leaves everything to the last minute, this focuses the mind while allowing inspiration to slowly simmer and bubble. In OGTD, undisciplined thoughts are given free rein; they wander down winding unproductive paths and permit the intrusion of innumerable frivolities and distractions.
