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.

Prepare to be inspired by Simon Penhaligon's one-weekend implementation of GTD. After agreeing to take on twice his usual workload, Simon knew he needed a new way of working. Over one intense weekend, he listened to the Getting Things Done audiobook, and set up his system. Since getting into the GTD groove, Simon has been able to handle the expanded workload, while driving his inbox to zero daily, and still spending evenings and weekends with his wife and daughter. He uses Microsoft Outlook? for email and calendar, and Evernote? for everything else.

Back in 2015, David Allen and Brian Robertson had a discussion about GTD and Holacracy. In this new talk, they catch up about the current state of the intersection between individual and organizational productivity. You'll hear some interesting similarities between the two models, as well as some parallels in their history and purpose.

Lars Rothschild Henriksen describes his journey from working as a software engineer to becoming the only certified GTD trainer in Denmark. His inspirational story is based on his Horizon 5 interest in helping people, and finding GTD to be a very effective way to accomplish that purpose. He has used a wide variety of digital tools to track commitments, starting with Remember the Milk, then OneNote, Wunderlist, Outlook, and currently, Todoist. He also uses Evernote and OneNote for different types of reference.

You can find Lars on TwitterInstagram, and on the GTDnordic.dk site.

Stephen Reese is a professor of journalism at the University of Texas at Austin. He has long been a student of productivity, with years of history using tools from low-tech to high-tech. You'll enjoy hearing him discuss his GTD practice, especially his "habits of the mind for the intellectual craftsman."

The article that Stephen mentions during the interview is "The Intellectual Craftsman in a Digital World". On that page, scroll down to see the full article.

Stephen's faculty page has more information about his background, and links to additional resources.

Note: We had some audio static for a couple of minutes from 6:00 to 8:46, but it's clear after that.

This is an installation and implementation session on the higher Horizons of Focus?. We will spend time exploring if anything has your attention at each of the horizons, and will end with integrating the horizons at the project and next action levels.

During the session, there are sections where you can create or refine what you have on each of the horizons. The prompt questions for each of the horizons are listed below. These sections were about five minutes each in the live webinar. We have edited out those sections of silence for this recording. Please feel free to stop the recording as you reach those sections, and use the prompt questions below to work on each of your horizons.

The webinar concluded with these two thoughts:

  • Without clear purpose and direction you could easily be busy doing off-course things and wonder why a meaningful life is so elusive
