Podcast Review: Interviews with David ("Getting Things Done") Allen

Merlin Mann of 43 Folders interviews author David Allen here in a series of podcasts. Allen is the author of Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity It is fascinating to hear how Allen views his own process. He has a very "human" perspective on getting organized. He tells us that everybody procrastinates, even the most organized executive. And he brilliantly encapsulates his process by explaining that we can move forward in all of our life's tasks by distilling these tasks to a focus on the absolute "next action" ("cranking a widget").

I've been a Franklin Planner user for years, but I must say that Allen's deeply-thought-out methods of organization have had a major effect on my productivity.

Hi Manny,

Just wanted to point out that you seem to have misspelled David's name in the title of the post.

All the best!
