What would you ask David Allen?

Forums - Ask David any question

Over on the DavidCo forum, Lisa asks:

If you could ask David Allen any one question about GTD, what would it be?

It mightn't surprise you to know I'd want to learn a bit more implementation and about how David sees contexts working best for people whose work mostly happens in one place (recently).

But I'm especially curious to hear what you guys would ask, given the chance. What would you ask David Allen about Getting Things Done?

Ricky Spears's picture

David - Two or three...

David - Two or three years ago you were offering a seminar called, "Leveraging Focus and Vision." You stoppedd offering it. I've heard that it included psycho-cybernetics concepts and addressed many of the issues that some of us have with staying on track with the "Doing" phase of our workflow. Do you have plans to bring that seminar series back? Better yet, how about a book that we can study? If neither of these is a high priority for you, can you at least briefly summarize the concepts for us?

While were on the subject, are you working on a follow-up book to Getting Things Done and Ready for Anything?

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. »
