Mike Sturm
A writer, among other things.

Hello. Thank you for pointing your browser here.

My name is Mike Sturm, and there are a few reasons why you might know me:

  • You have seen my fancy GTD spreadsheet or taken my course on how to use it.
    In 2017 I wrote an article on Medium about how I use a simple spreadsheet to run a version of David Allen's famous GTD productivity system. The response was (and still is) beyond what I ever expected. That led me to create a course made up of 12 videos that guide you through using the sheet to run the system for yourself.

  • You read one of my articles on Medium.
    Most of my writing is about productivity, self-improvement, and life in this digital age. I have written for publications like Better Humans, Personal Growth, and The Coffeelicious, among various others. I am also the co-founder and erstwhile editor of a wonderful publication called The Junction—where the real editorial work is done by the talented Matt Tomic

  • You have read and/or subscribed to Woolgathering.
    I am the editor-in-chief of Woolgathering, a (mostly) weekly e-mail newsletter in which I pull together ther seemingly disconnected threads of knowledge, and help you spin it into wisdom. A lofty goal, to be sure, but at the very least, I hope reading it helps you think differently.

I am available for hire—for both writing and speaking gigs. Interested parties should email me to inquire about those opportunities.
