GTD and RPM Fusion Project

Hi guys

I am working on a special project to combine GTD with RPM. RPM(aka OPA) is developed by Anthony Robbins, a top-down time management approach. I also aim the approach to be compatible with covey's 7 Habits.

I used both GTD and RPM in the past few years. To the contrary belief, they are not really competing with each other.

GTD did a great job in capturing, that's what RPM lacks. RPM did a great job in higher level planning aka 10,000-50,000ft stuff. Develop visions and goals etc.

I implemented this fusion approach using DevonThink and iGTD.

I am in the process of writing things out - finish most parts so far. I really need some constructive feedbacks to take it forward. If you are interested, read the articles I published so far on www.gtdfusion.com, raise as many questions as you can think of. Thanks.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
