Few books (or authors) have had a more profound influence on thinking about productivity than Getting Things Done, by David Allen. I’ve mentioned it many times on the show, and thought it was time to give a brief overview of the “GTD” system and how it works. Of course I recommend that you get a copy of the book and read it for yourself, but in the meantime, this episode’s overview will introduce you to the concepts, which come up often in our discussions on The Productive Woman.
It’s Not Just About Getting Things Done
In truth, this book is not so much concerned with getting things done as it is championing appropriate engagement with your world–guiding you to make the best choice of what to do in each moment, and eliminating distraction and stress about what you’re not doing.” ~ David Allen, Getting Things Done
