Publisher's Summary

David Allen, author of Getting Things Done, uses lists so he doesn't have to make a plan. This may seem counterintuitive, but it's actually extremely intuitive thinking. As soon as something crosses your mind, it is best to deal with it immediately in the most appropriate way. Most of the time, that means writing an action item down on a list to do later. But addressing thoughts as they occur to you, even if that just means acknowledging them and planning on saving them for later, frees up your mind so the real critical thinking can be done on issues that really matter.

    "Good Reminder of GTD Reasoning"

    You could use this quick listen two ways. One way to use it is as a refresher if you've read David Allen's book Getting Things Done several times and are implementing the practices (or trying to move into them.) The second way it could be used is as a quick overview to decide if you want to know more about GTD. If trying to decide whether or not to use GTD methodology with this information, do yourself the favor of listening to it 5 or 10 times before deciding not to. He moves fast in this excerpt.
