David Allen gave this talk when I was in Google campus in Mountain View. It was one of the most popular tech talks, the room was really filled up.
Basic ideas of GTD are simple. After you get them, they seem to be just common sense. But it takes a while to figure out what we’re doing when we’re doing stuff. And also, doing stuff becomes collecting, processing, organizing, reviewing and doing. Myself, I’ve merely gotten to the stage of organizing. But at least I started to collect and process. If you’re curious what that means, sit back, relax and enjoy the talk.
