May 2017, Volume 6, Issue 5

Happy May, SynerLINK Friends,

This month is dedicated to the 4th Foundation of Health and Happiness – Self – as described in my book, the 7 Foundations of Health and Happiness: Building a Bridge to Balance.  One of the best ways I have found to be your best self is to consciously balance your priorities and your activities. Enter David Allen’s Getting Things Done system, which has just been a godsend for my own life balance, and I believe will be for you, too (if you’re not already a fan!).  Our featured article this month includes the best 15-minute explanation of GTD I’ve ever seen.

If you enjoy the newsletter, please forward to friends or colleagues who may enjoy receiving it, as well.  They can click the links at the bottom of this newsletter to subscribe, or to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn, or go to our home page:

As always, I welcome suggestions, comments, or interesting links.  Please send to:

Best wishes for your health and happiness,
Chanel Heermann, MD

David Allen is a genius at common sense and how to get the things that matter done.


Great infographics on the GTD system.


I’m also a huge fan of Stephen Covey’s work regarding conscious prioritization of our lives.  Here is a great video explaining one of his concepts that I find most meaningful – the idea of Big Rocks:  [And, yes, for those of you who have been following this newsletter for awhile, I did share this before about 3 years ago.  The classics never get old!]



Make the most of your playtime. 🙂
