Agile Results


Agile Origami
Agile Results is a revolutionary productivity system developed by JD Meier.

We’ve experimented extensively with Agile Results at Asian Efficiency, and think that it’s an amazing way to track your goals, keep you focussed and basically help you get things done. To this end, we’ve written up an introductory guide to Agile Results which will help you get up and running with Agile right away.

What is Agile Results?

Agile Results is a different way of organizing your life and your productivity tools and systems. It relies on the concept of setting proper goals and outcomes, then directly linking your daily, weekly and monthly actions towards those goals and outcomes (this is actually the definition of productivity).

Agile Results also incorporates several important mindsets and systems to help make you more productive.

We love to share tips about Agile Results and other productivity methodologies, software and insights in our newsletter. It’s the only place that you will find exclusive Asian Efficiency content that is not shared anywhere else. If you like our Agile Results content, you’ll definitely love our newsletter content.

Key Agile Results Concepts

We cover all the key concepts of Agile Results extensively in part 1 of our Agile Results Series, but here is a quick overview of the most important concepts.

  • Rule of 3. The idea of setting 3 and only 3 outcomes for each timeframe you operate in – daily, weekly, monthly and yearly.
  • Triage. Agile’s version of GTD. Doing, queueing, delegating or scheduling incoming items.
  • Agility. The ability to do something fast, seeing if it works, then tweaking it and doing it again – only better.
  • Systems Thinking. Creating systems for everything you do, to reduce friction and overhead. So important we have a whole article on it.

Agile Results Tools and Apps

We recommend using multiple tools to implement the various components of Agile Results.

Thanks for the collection of articles. GRTAW can be hard to wrap your brain around because it allows for such customization and tailoring. I think you guys have set a good primer on the content.

Have you guys thought of doing deep dive live seminars?

Not in the immediate future!

Thank you for the content. This is why I thoroughly enjoy, OK, I LOVE this site. The content is nearly always packed full of golden nuggets, that I can either store for later use or put into action immediately and get results. This piece is gratefully the latter.

I have been ardently trying to incorporate GTD, and Agile Results is exactly the focusing I was missing.

Maybe I’m missing something here, and I hope the AE team can answer this. How do you go about implementing tasks into an Agile Results workflow? Where do I remind myself of routine chores, errand lists, grocery lists, and other to-do’s that are not necessarily outcomes but must get done.
