13550Welcome! Do you need help managing your time and being more productive? Is your life—and your brain—cluttered with a zillion items on your “to-do” list? I have the answer for you! Meet David Allen, a consultant and the author of “Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity.” His clearly defined methodology holds answers for you in managing your life’s work, from the personal to the professional.  I was SO excited to have David on the show as I am a huge advocate of the GTD way.

David Allen is widely recognized as the world’s leading authority on personal and organizational productivity. Forbes named him one of the top 5 executive coaches in the U.S. and Fast Company Magazine named him one of the world’s most influential thinkers on personal productivity.

David’s internationally bestselling book “Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity”  has attracted a massive following of devoted fans who swear by his technique. (including me)

The “Getting Things Done” methodology, also know as GTD, has shown millions how to transform a fast-paced, overwhelming, overcommitted life into one that is balanced, integrated and relaxed. Time Magazine proclaimed “Getting Things Done” to be ‘the definitive business self-help book of the decade.”

But this technique isn’t just for work – it’s a proven path for getting control of your life.

 


In today’s show, we discuss all things PRODUCTIVITY. 

  • David walks us through his step-by-step process of “Getting Things Done”
  • We learn the 5 simple steps to apply order to chaos
  • David shares his “2 minute rule” for checking things off your to-do list
  • Why do we procrastinate?
  • And we discuss the importance of honoring our commitments to ourselves and why that is sometimes difficult
  • plus much much more

What you’ll hear in this episode:

  • How David ended up where he is today
  • David makes the distinction between what the brain was designed to do and what we want it to do.
  • We try to keep track of everything internally and overload our brains.
  • Understanding “The Open Loop”—loose ends cluttering up our head space
  • Five Simple Steps to help apply order to chaos: Capture, Clarify, Organize, Reflect, and Engage. David explains each step and how to apply it to life.
  • David’s “Two Minute Rule” for getting things done
  • Why his model is a holistic plan, going through ALL the steps to get really clear.
  • We each have a comfort zone for unprocessed stuff.
  • Why we keep deadlines and commitments to others, but often NOT to ourselves
  • David’s plan can bring you success in ONLY TWO DAYS! It may take up to two years to become a habit.
  • Why do we procrastinate? We are afraid to fail, so we don’t start. It’s the perfectionist trap.
  • David shares his morning routine. You may be surprised at his priorities!
  • Why your lists and processes need a weekly review
  • Why are we here? “To experience who we are at multiple different levels and explore that so we return back to the essence of what we came from”
