For many, the workplace is broken. We may not realize it, but our tools can shape us in unproductive ways, and we've become conditioned to accept this as normal. In this recording, David Allen and John Forrister talk With Eric Mack about his 8 Practices of Intentionally Productive Work, which provide a framework to help you shift your mindset and uplevel your work.

To help people better understand the relationship between their knowledge, methods, and tools, Eric's doing a survey on workstyles and key frustrations. We encourage the GTD community to participate. We did, and found it helpful to us in understanding how we work, what we can do to improve, and more.

Key Frustrations and Work Styles Survey

Rene Lie started his career as a musician, and has branched out in surprising ways.

David Allen talks with psychologist Mark Tigchelaar about how the brain deals with distractions, and how long it takes to recover from distractions.

In another of their occasional chats, David Allen is interviewed by Dave Edwards. They explore the art of balancing predefined work that you may have told yourself is important for today, with work that shows up. They discuss the importance of having protocols and agreements for communication on your team, including expected response times. Then they consider the different types of notes you might take in meetings. That leads to a perennial question: How to get others to do GTD? David's answer is that happens when someone exemplifies outcome and action thinking.

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®.

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®.

David Allen talks with Jerry Michalski, for a look inside Jerry's brain, as documented by his extensive use of TheBrain. Over the years you may have heard David talk about his use of TheBrain. Jerry is one of the earliest adopters, and has tracked an astounding number of ideas and their interconnections. By using TheBrain, Jerry says it shifts him from system 1 thinking (fast) to system 2 thinking (slow). He describes the need for a fundamental shift from thinking of ourselves as consumers to thinking of ourselves as citizens. He also talks about the importance of designing systems that start from trust, which get better results that cost less and have terrific side effects, like rebuilding community and releasing our inherent genius.

David Allen, Eric Mack, and John Forrister continue their discussion about their software journey, from early years to their current use of the Microsoft 365 suite of tools. If you haven't heard the first part, you may want to watch or listen to that first, but it's not required.

In this recording, they talk about the evolution of eProductivity and how much of its functionality is available in the Microsoft tools. Beyond that, it's a wide-ranging discussion of how to think about productivity, and how getting organized is an ongoing process, not a one-time destination. And of course there are some software details, such as how David is tracking Waiting For items.

David Allen, Eric Mack, and John Forrister discuss their software journey, from early years to their current use of the Microsoft 365 suite of tools. A consistent theme is that it's not about the tool, but about bringing a productive mindset and habits to any tool. They discuss how the tools shape our behavior, and may or may not promote good GTD habits. The story starts in the mid-1990s with Lotus Notes. They talk about why Notes, and also why Microsoft 365 now. There are interesting tangents into groupware, CRMs, and instant messaging.

Be sure to listen after David hops off, as Eric and John continue discussing for another few minutes, and invite your input on future topics.
