Find yourself overwhelmed with hundreds of to-dos? Is your hard-drive littered with dozens of killer ideas that you started with enthusiasm and then just fizzled away? Do you feel like you are moving as fast as can but only getting to the wrong place quicker? Well perhaps this session will help.

There are various techniques and strategies available to us today that aim to help with exactly this conundrum - from Getting Things Done ™ to Personal Kanban. Unfortunately it is often easy to be extremely productive using these systems, but not very effective. After all, it's not about getting things done, but getting the RIGHT things done. In this talk we will discuss not only how to get things done, but also attempt to figure out what it is you actually need to be doing.

In this session, I will attempt to show you how you can leverage various strategies to be more effective, knock to-dos out and have fun while doing it. If time permits we will close with an overview of the tools that are available to you, and how you can use these to become a to-do list ninja :)
