*The Art of Stress Free Productivity*
A 20 minute TEDx talk from David Allen, inventor of the “Getting Things
Done” work processing methodology. Combine this with the “7 Habits” and you
have some power training in how to navigate your personal and work life
focused on your main priorities.
Do you use a zero inbox strategy? You do? Great. Now use the same principle
for your brain ;)
Life is messy. Getting things done is about creating space to get messy.

Be *appropriately* engaged with the world! Couldn’t agree more with David

Crisis evokes serenity. The luxury to stop for a minute is to be in the
Not just productive, but stress-free productivity.
Appropriate engagement: Getting things done is being appropriately engaged
The issue is not time.
How long does it have to be creative? 0 time.
But we need space to be creative. Psychologically space.
Your toughest work is defining what your work is.
“Do not keep anything in your head for the rest of your life.”
Great TED talk: David Allen, the author of Getting Things Done, talks about
stress free productivity.
I’ve been aware for some time that I’m more relaxed and productive if I get
the things I need to think about out of my head and out of my way. He
explains this in 22 minutes.
I just watched this and got the profound sense that it has the potential to
change my life for the better.
Absolutely brilliant! The talk by David Allen, on Getting Thing Done, it
worth the 23 minutes to watch. Just make sure you have a pen and paper
Are you appropriately engaged in your work (and life)? We all just have 24
hours in a day… The Art of Stress-Free Productivity: David Allen at
this guy is doing nothing for me. Brian Tracy can give me better tips in 5
minutes than this guy has in 22
The problem is that he has a strong and effective idea, and has stretched
it out to 22 minutes.
Sure, he could have explained how to make a list of tasks, how much
attention to give it, and how to release the items from your mind in about
3 minutes, but would they have invited him to speak for that? Sadly, the

– stick to your priorities, sweep everything irrelevant aside, quality over
quantity of time spent on something, etc
Simple but good,I like it .
Thanks to Brian Kitching for introducing me to this guy’s very simple
methods for gaining better focus. This video is a good quick reminder of
The life that this guy advocates makes me cringe – I do not want to be a
robot constantly making a list about every list I make, and allocating time
to everything – Why can’t we just live in accordance with nature? I would
rather live a life like Diogenes, carefree, simply going with the flow,
that is what it means to live in accordance with nature.
David Allen’s GTD system changed the way I manage tasks I in life.
If you are already in a mess you don’t have space to make a mess.
