David Allen has a fascinating talk with Brandon Hensinger, Founder and CEO of Avrio Genetics. Brandon has started various companies, from rock climbing to pharmaceuticals. He has a passion for taking startups or small companies and growing them fast. Along the way, GTD has been a key to managing the increasing complexity and responsibility in his life. He says most people don't have much of a system to keep themselves organized, other than their email inbox. For his new employees, he recommends that they read Getting Things Done. He also has them start with a list of projects and items they are waiting for. This allows them to have more productive meetings with colleagues, right from the start. His advice for sharing GTD with others? Don't just give advice. Show them. Give them a demonstration. You can find out much more about Brandon on his website. Also, check out Brandon interviewing David.

You can listen to the entire conversation from November 2020 at GTD Connect®.

David describes Greg Shepard as a lifelong learner on steroids. When you hear Greg talk about all that he has done, and still plans to do, you'll understand how that description fits. He has a history of taking on a variety of big challenges, because he believes that, "The bigger the problem the better the opportunity." Other people have bought more than one copy of Getting Things Done, but you'll find that Greg had an unusual reason for doing that. One of his current interests is altruistic capitalism, the idea that businesses should have concern for doing good beyond making a profit. You'll be inspired by his dedication to making the world a better place. 

You can listen to the entire conversation from October 2020 at GTD Connect®.

Creator of the second-best productivity tool for GTD, Eric Mack is grounded in GTD and knowledge management. David Allen and John Forrister recently talked with Eric about his five principles of productivity software design, in the hope that it might inspire future designers to incorporate some of these principles into their applications.

Eric is also doing a survey on workstyles and key frustrations. We encourage the GTD community to take his survey. 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

For a limited time, Eric is offering GTD Connect members a complimentary call to early survey respondents to discuss his recommendations.

David Allen has reconnected with Kevin Wilde, for a discussion about learning, leadership, and coachability.

David Allen interviewed Daniel Levitin several years ago after the publication of The Organized Mind. In this interview, David talks with Daniel about his new book, Successful Aging: A Neuroscientist Explores the Power and Potential of Our Lives. They begin by discussing the neuroscientific basis for GTD. Then Daniel explains that there are two principles from GTD that are crucial for successful aging. They are 1) externalizing your memory, and 2) living conscientiously. He says that when you become more conscientious, you are rewiring your brain in beneficial ways. They also talk about how learning new things is helpful for your brain. You can find out more about Daniel on his website. He is also on several social media channels. Instagram Twitter Facebook

We have a delightful Slice of GTD Life interview for you, with Jim Small. He's a professor of pathology at Rocky Vista University, and self-confessed "science nerd." In addition to his background in medicine, he has studied computer programming, which he credits with thinking sequentially in a way that works well with GTD. His use of list management software goes way back to Palm OS and Palm Desktop, as well as Outlook, Word, Google docs, and Evernote. He has set up list management systems from simple to complex. (Hint: He says simple is better.) He speaks of the underappreciated value of the Waiting For list, and encourages those new to GTD to acknowledge themselves. His intelligence and humor shine through all the way, especially when he describes why he calls his GTD system Tembo.

You can listen to the entire conversation from November 2019 at GTD Connect®.

Bruce Fetzer took a productivity training with David Allen in the 1980s. Since then he has been applying what he learned. His work with the John E. Fetzer Memorial Trust has been his major focus in the last few years. The mission of the trust is to advance integrated, relational views of reality through exploring scientific frontiers and universal spiritual practices. David Allen engages Bruce in a discussion of the role of business in doing good work through meta-science, or the study of the scientific method. They also explore how to integrate inner life with outer action.

There is a free biography of John E. Fetzer available from the Fetzer Trust site.
