Having a good set of tools and being clear how you want to use them are keys to an effective GTD practice. Join us for a conversation about the rules for your tools, including:

  • Identifying roadblocks that lead to being repelled by your tools
  • What to consider when choosing the tools for GTD
  • Defining the features and functions that will impact your productivity
  • Creating clear guidelines with your team about which tool for which purpose

You can listen to, or watch this entire conversation from October 2021 at GTD Connect®.

Jukka Backman is a GTD trainer and coach, as well as the managing director for GTD in Finland. In this recording, he shares about the multifaceted value of writing things down. Jukka says, "There is definite power in writing things down. When externalized (from the mind) our perception of the things that took our attention, changes." He talks about the specifics of how to use a worry list, how to start or refine your use of the Mind Sweep, harnessing the power of your self-talk, and his use of the Intention Journal.

You can listen to the entire conversation from June 2021 at GTD Connect®.

Nov 2, 2023

In another David Allen and Dave Edwards talk, David starts by asking Dave about his time at NPR and the current state of journalism. Then they move into a brief discussion of managing versus leading.

Moving on to GTD, Dave asks David whether he does a larger than usual review at the beginning of the year, and David replies about what times of year and events in life prompt what kinds of reviewing. Dave says that moving every two years is a good way to limit how much stuff you keep. David jokes that moving onto a sailboat is a great way to decide which stuff you want to keep. (David did in fact live on a sailboat years ago.)

They consider what types of reference materials get filed as paper or digital files, and how much reference material is too much. The answer is have as much as you want, as long as you don't have attention on whether there's still some action to take on anything in reference.

They talk about having the freedom to delete tasks from your lists, or move them to Someday/Maybe.

Finally, Dave asks David a question about how many next actions to specify for a project.

You can listen to the entire conversation from February 2022 at GTD Connect®.
