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)

Well that was worth...

Well that was worth the wait after yesterdays webinar with David Allen. Great to have some things clarified. Can't wait to read future publications to see some of the detail on the beginning muck and miry junk.

David exposed himself a little by telling us of his 'trick' of using mind mapping on any Project. Somtimes you may have just one next action, but if you have more ideas that flow 'capture' all of them on paper or digitally. He even uses it for quick 'step into my office' hashing-out ideas/meetings. A great way to communicate with people so not to get that immediate 'defensive' eye-balling stand off that occurs, or as some call it: the dominant do it!

I'm looking to receive the back-up of this conference to review. A great overview for me.

Merlin, what's the scheduled release for the series, or no?

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.
