David Allen Webinar
He simply has a way of clarifying what Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity is all about. Here's what I heard him say and witnessed on his on-screen Mind Map:
Key Components of Self Management: Control and Perspective
Models of Getting Things Done
- Workflow (Collect, Process, Organize, Review, Do)
- Natural Planning (Purpose, Mission/Vision, Brainstorming, Organizing, Next Actions)
- Horizons of Focus (50K - Purpose and Core Values, 40K - Vision, 30K - Goals and Objectives, 20K - Areas of Responsibility, 10K - Projects, Runway - Next Actions)
To have the proper perspective, you must have control first.
One of the coolest phrases I've heard - He said that a couple of Psychologists attended one of his seminars and said that what he was doing had a scientific name - Distributed Cognition. He replied, "you mean writing things down?"
