119: Ask the VSG!


A great call covering a mixed bag of GTD topics, asked and answered by those on the live call. We started out with a follow-up to last month’s call hearing about Mike Schroff’s implementation using OneNote. From there we moved on to overflowing email inboxes, Inbox Zero, collaborative platforms, ‘mind like water’, weekly reviews, daily reviews, and more. A little something for everyone in this fun call! Hope you enjoy!

026: Perspective and Control


David Allen calls it "captain and commander," a state of perspective and control nirvana that allows you to have mind like water. But how do you get there? In this episode, we talk about capture, weekly review, and the other GTD skills that are needed to get you in the upper-right quadrant. We also had a surprise special guest, Renzo Borgatti, who gave us the low-down on the Pomodoro Technique as a means of gaining greater control over distraction and increasing focus.
