Getting Things Done (GTD)

Title:
Rating:
5 out of 5 stars

I used to be a big fat lazy procrastinator, and in some cases I still am. However, after getting really frustrated with my own infliction, I decided to do something about it. I had heard mumblings of this things called Getting Things Done (GTD). Originally it was a book by David Allen which decribes a series of methodologies, processes and simple tips that can help you become a more productive person. It has now become a bit of a cult, especially on the web where you can find all sorts of stuff on GTD.

It really has become the basis of a bit of a new philosophy for me and has really helped me get my arse in gear and just Get Things Done. The book itself is tough reading, it is well written, but the material is heavy because it does challenge a lot of your previously ingrained bad habits. It is well worth sticking with though because even if you don't go away and do everything in the book (I certainly havn't), it can really help change the way you think about all those little things you think you never quite have time to do.

A slgihty bit of irony in this (and proving that I still have a long way to go) is that it took me around a month just to pick the book up after borrowing it from John and even longer to getting around to writing a review. I've been prompted into action by the fact that my friend Richard bought me a copy this weekend and I have finally given John his copy back.

Wallace & Gromit review

Fantastic stuff again from Nick Park and co. The latest greatest Wallance and Gromit is his best yet and his first full length feature film.

We were slightly embarrassed to be one of the few couples in the cinema without children, but that soon went away when we realised there was as usual plenty for adults and not just the kids. With laughs, cuteness and genius all the way through, I couldn't recommend it more.

XXX 2 – The Next Level

2 out of 5 stars
Second of the two films I saw on the way back from South Africa. In rather stark contrast to Sin City, this is neither clever nor stylish. It is even worse than the original with awful plot and acting backed up only by a hell of a lot of big explosions. Blah…can't be arsed to say any more about this

Sin City

I saw this on the plane on the way back from South Africa last week and I must say that it rocks!

Not going to write an indepth review, but I will mention that it is not for the faint hearted as it is intensely violent. However, it is done in such a beautiful, stylish and down right cool manner that I really don't mind!

The three leading men, Clive Owen, Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis do a great job and are supported to make up a fantastic cast.

Watch it!
