A quick introduction to David Allen for folks who don’t know him. This widely followed author and consultant on Getting Things Done (often known as GTD) has begun blogging here at BusinessWeek’s Time Management blog, starting today. Allen, who has been called a “messiah” of productivity and the “touchstone of the life-hacking movement,” has a rabid following among people looking for a system for, well, getting things done. To get introduced to Allen’s ideas, check out his site, his first post, and of course, stay tuned here for more.

I am a huge fan of David Allen and have a great passion for what he and his company are doing. I strongly believe that as the economic pressures and uncertainties escalate, even more will be expected of workers resulting in the likelihood of a spiraling, out of control situation. I am in serious discussions with the company to become their first outside sales executive. The first market to launch this new channel is Washington, D.C. What do you think about the idea?

Incredible! My two favorite organiztion mentors in the same place!

Julie Morgenstern changed both my career world (broker) and my church ministry organization (music director of 5 choirs at a megachurch).

David Allen added even more on top of Julie's self-exam tests for finding how you best work, and my music staff is literally amazed at the extra time available after we all initiated GTD fundamentals.

Good to go!

Thank you for your interest. This blog is no longer active.
