Recently, Software Advice wrote on their Bad-Ass Execution Principles -- a modern take on the classic guide to organization by David Allen, Getting Things Done. They’ve taken a proactive approach to prioritization and organization and have updated the principles to reflect the use of web-based applications like Basecamp, Gmail and Google Calendar.
