Jeff Veen on simple tools, meetings, and leveraging the commute
Merlin Mann | Mar 19 2007
In this second segment of our interview with Jeffrey Veen (here's the previous one), Jeff talks about making the best of meetings (and the time around them), lofi capture, and the beauty of simple tools -- including both paper and UNIX apps.
I especially like when Jeff discusses how he uses his shuttle commute time; by knowing that he can rely on firewalled time to bookend each work day, Jeff can confidently lob tasks out of the moment and into that quiet and reliable commute session. I find this a very GTD-like practice in that it sets aside time for processing, organization, and reviewing -- leaving the hectic work day free for pure doing.
