How David Allen Gets Things Done

This video has been doing the rounds over the past couple of days so I thought I would post it to my blog in case you have not already seen it.

This is David Allen, the Author of the Getting Things Done Methodology in his home office. Although the video is only short, it shows you how David organizes his own office.

If you have not seen it, check it out.

    Thanks for the great video! I haven’t seen this one before. I’ll have to watch it a few times just to internalize all he shared in 3 minutes. Wow. One of my favorite quotes of DA is about how he was so lazy, he invented ways to work less! Love it. I just published an article in the Mindjet Blog on how mind mapping complements GTD to ‘gain control’ of my world. Check it out here: (

    Andrew, thanks so much for posting this. Is it just me or did anyone else find it inspiring.
