Episode Info:

David Allen (@gtdguy) has built a legacy. He’s created a system that helps millions of people get more of what they want out of life. Getting Things Done, the book, has sold millions of copies. And there’s an entire cottage industry of GTD apps and consultants, all over the world.

Even if you’ve never read or heard of GTD, you or someone you work with probably operates with “next actions,” and “contexts.”

David and I talked more about the GTD system back in his first appearance on the show on episode 85.

This time, we’ll be talking about David’s accidental legacy. How does somebody create something that spreads like wildfire and changes the culture?

Today, we’ll talk about:

  • Your day to day actions are guided by meaning on various levels. How can you think about the different levels of what’s meaningful to you, and how can you think about what actions you need to take to make those things happen?
  • Why does David’s screensaver say “let go?” Following a system like GTD may feel like it’s for control freaks, but learn the difference between being in control, and under control.
  • What was the one email David got that made him decide that GTD was ready to scale globally?
