Productivity, Motivation, and Personal Development Links – 18th January 2009

Another very productive week for me. I have been working on a very long customer report all week and also my latest eBook writing project for Cisco Press.

Deadlines really help you to focus and I am happy to say that I hit another one. Good planning and time allocation are key to working on a writing project with a deadline. I avoid procrastination and start early. There is nothing worse than leaving everything to the last minute, by which time you put yourself under undue pressure!

Here are my collection of links for this week.

I am just getting ready to set off to Havant near Portsmouth for three nights. This time my hotel advertises Free WiFi Internet so let’s see how good the connection is.

Hope you all have a great week.

David Allen Interviewed by Robert Scoble

Just thought I would share this great interview with David Allen, author of Getting Things Done (GTD) with Robert Scoble on WorkFast.tv.

The interview is 30 minutes long and David Allen goes through the basics of GTD and how David came to create the GTD system.

This is a great video from two great thought leaders of our time, not to be missed!

David Allen Getting Things Done GTD Seminars

Just received an email with some updated dates for two of David Allen’s seminars. These are the GTD: Mastering Workflow Seminar and GTD: The Roadmap Seminar.

Here is the intro to the GTD: Mastering Workflow Seminar

This one-day seminar delivers a dynamic, systematic, five-phase approach to dealing effectively with the incoming “stuff” of our lives – mail, memos, meetings, email, ideas, notes, to-dos, projects, reference materials, etc., and provides a practical methodology for utilizing paper-based and computer-based systems to organize it.

Here is the intro to the GTD: The Roadmap Seminar

The flagship of the GTD (Getting Things Done) seminar series, The RoadMap defines the game and helps you jump into it at a new and expanded level. This lively one-day workshop features David Allen live and in-person as he examines the core principles of productivity improvement, then provides you with a unique opportunity to develop your own specific and immediate action steps to implement them.

They both sound fantastic events that I would love to attend.

The dates for GTD: Mastering Workflow are:

  • Sept 30 – New York City, NY
  • Oct 3 – San Francisco, CA
  • Oct 10 – Washington, DC
  • Oct 23 – London, UK
  • Oct 31 – Seattle, WA
  • Nov 7 – Tampa, FL
  • Nov 11 – Toronto, Canada
  • Nov 20 – Boston, MA
  • Dec 3 – Pittsburgh, PA

The dates for GTD: The Roadmap are:

  • Sept 19 – Boston, MA
  • Oct 24 – London, UK
  • Nov 4 – Atlanta, GA
  • Feb 17 – Dortmund, Germany
  • Feb 19 – Amsterdam

I would love to attend one of these seminars but I am too busy on both of the days when these are being held in the UK. I would love to hear from anybody who has been on similar seminars or how plans to attend these seminars.
