After decades of in-the- field research and practice of his productivity methods, David wrote the international best-seller Getting Things Done. Published in over 28 languages, TIME magazine heralded it as “the defining self-help business book of its time.”
Getting Things Done® (GTD) methodology is a set of good practices that can be learned to become habits and lead to less stress, more perspective and control and be present in the moment in whatever you are doing.
David Allen, the author of Getting Things Done, has proposed a fundamentally different approach. David argues that what is required is not elusive time management but really self management – what we do with ourselves in any situation or context, time being just one variable. It involves dealing effectively with all of the things we have to do and want to do, both personally and professionally.
GTD is about capturing things we collect and create, deciding what (if anything) we want to do about them, organising the results of that knowledge work into a trusted system we can review appropriately and making intuitive strategic and tactical choices about what to do at any point in time from our options.
In this way, GTD provides a comprehensive approach for increasing productivity while decreasing stress.
