Podcast: Interview with GTD's David Allen on Procrastination

Productive Talk #01: Procrastination

As I mentioned yesterday, today 43 Folders and The David Allen Company are happy to bring you the first in a series of wide-ranging conversations that David and I recently had about Getting Things Done.

So, let's kick things off with a goodie. Here's The David's take on that devil, Procrastination.

In this episode, David and Merlin talk about a very popular topic on 43 Folders -- procrastination. They discuss where procrastination comes from and how GTD can help get you back to cranking widgets. (13:21)

I think I'm with Natasha...

I think I'm with Natasha here, not with schoolwork necessarily, but with work, household chores, exercise and a few other things.

It's not that I'm forgetting to do any of these things, or that there's something niggling in the back of my mind that I just can't remember, it's that I just can't get it into gear.

For instance, "jog 2 miles" is one of my recurring actions. When the alarm goes off, I just don't want to get out of bed and go do it and I can't get motivated to do it any time during the day. This recurring action has been slipping for quite a few weeks now.

Maybe Merlin and Dave need to do a "overcoming layziness" podcast for some of us.

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. »
