Rank #6: Becoming More Productive

Podcast cover
Read more

David Allen is arguably the world leading productivity consultant, and author of the best selling book Getting Things Done. When you don't have an effective productivity system, you almost always feel like you should be doing something else. Allen shows that the consistent unproductive preoccupation with all of the things we have to do, is the single largest consumer of time and energy. That most lists people create, are a big blob of undoability.   

Allen presents a practical system to boost your productivity and let you enjoy the present moment of whatever you are doing. If things are on your mind, then it isn't clear. You need a trusted collection tool that you know you will go back to regularly and sort through.

In this episode we discuss

  • The 'Getting Things Done' method for productivity

I highly recommend buying his book, 'Getting Things Done - The Art of Stress Free Productivity'.
