Jennifer Ladd-Lively demonstrates why "the better you get, the better you'd better get." As her responsibilities have increased, she has modified her system from what she calls the brute force method, to a combination of digital and paper that handles everything smoothly.

Jennifer says the two-minute rule made a big difference in her productivity, as did the Weekly Review, which is now part of her routine. Others ask her how she accomplishes so much with ease, so it's no surprise that her example inspires those around her.

Jason Atwood has built GTD into his company from the start. Listen as he shares with David Allen about starting Arkus, a Salesforce consulting firm, well after his own GTD practice was on a solid foundation. Beyond encouraging his employees to adopt GTD, he provides them with ongoing tools and support. During the onboarding period, he even meets with new employees to answer questions and refine their GTD implementation.

Jason is also inspiring the next generation, starting with his daughter, who has read Getting Things Done for Teens and begun putting it into practice.

His Twitter handle is @jasonmatwood (twitter.com/jasonmatwood), where he tweets about Salesforce, of course, and also about which music and coffee drink is along for his weekly review.

Join David Allen for a wide-ranging talk with Paul Akers. You'll learn that when Paul refers to himself as a carpenter, it's quite an understatement. He's a master woodworker (watch the video version to fully appreciate this), who also founded FastCap, a product development company specializing in woodworking tools and hardware for the professional builder.

His interest in lean manufacturing led him to apply those principles to other areas, including health. His next book will be called Lean Life.

You can contact him through his website, paulakers.net.

How does he do it all? Barry Hillam has a family, teaches and practices dentistry, and is a professional musician with a busy rehearsal and performance schedule. He also runs marathons and plays golf. Listen as Barry describes the event that catalyzed his search for a way to be more productive, the development of his GTD® system, and the ongoing refinements he makes.

Don't miss the six-minute coda at the end. We thought we had finished, but started chatting and found that he had more to say about moving from control into higher perspectives, and about optimizing desk time.
