We all need to get things done, that’s live. But for David Allen, having a solid method for getting things done (“GTD”) helps us get down to want is really important, to our role in this world. By clearing the mind from what we have to do, we also clear or psychic space, which allows us to be more creative, profound and also relaxed.

In this talk at the Do Lectures, David Allen explains the basics of his philosophy/method and a bit of his personal story on how he came to synthesize it.

For more information on GTD, I recommend David’s books (disclaimer: the links include an Amazon affiliate code, it won’t cost more for you but will recognize me a benefit from Amazon.com for the referral): Getting Things Done: The art of stress-free productivity and Ready for Anything: 52 Productivity Principles for Getting Things Done.
