David Allen’s mega best selling book, Getting Things Done, has spawned an entire industry of productivity products, but in a recent interview I conducted on the Duct Tape Marketing podcast he shares his vision and beliefs about goal setting and productivity.
His straightforward philosophy for managing the work and mental stress of juggling all the information we must juggle makes you realize that it’s not about some tool or planner, it’s about what you choose to focus on – the Getting Things Done mindset.
Small business owners have a serious drag on their mental RAM all day long. Getting Things Done is as much about reducing stress as it is about checking things off your list.
Merlin Mann’s 43 Folders, one of my favorites, has visited the Getting Things Done topic over the years too.
