118: Getting Things Done with Evernote Ambassador Bryan Lee: My Interview On His Podcast, LaunchByte


Bryan Lee, Evernote Ambassador for Fitness in Singapore, Interviews Daniel Gold, DEG Consulting in his podcast, LaunchByte

One of the best parts of what I do for an international community of folks who are looking to become more productive and successful in their lives is meeting and getting to know people from all corners of our globe. Yesterday was a great example! I was asked to be interviewed by Bryan Lee, the Evernote Ambassador for Fitness in Singapore, for his Google+ Hangout/podcast, LaunchByte!

Bryan is an entrepreneur, a writer and a self-taught software developer. He is the co-founder of Intraix, and a software company that helps commercial building to become more energy efficient. Particular to the productivity scene, Bryan speaks on how to increase productivity using Evernote to both schools and corporations.

Bryan wanted to interview me to talk about GTD®, Evernote, and overall principles about productivity. We covered a lot of topics in this 35 minute interview. For instance, do you need to strictly adhere to the tenants in GTD if you are getting things done with a modified system, can you implement the system in David Allen's book if you never actually read the book; and how I am teaching my productivity coaching clients how to implement both Todoist and Evernote together to lead a more productive and stress-free life. Oh, and then there was the question about what would I do if Evernote shut down tomorrow! You'll want to listen to all 35 minutes to know more!

Thank you again to Bryan for a very awesome interview. I feel quite grateful for the generous invitation and for making feel like I was sitting next to him in Singapore!

Here's the links you need for the show!

117: What Happens When You Veer Off the GTD Path?


In this podcast, we'll talk about what happens when you veer off the GTD path!

A listener wrote in asking specifically, “…for those who decide to not rigidly conform to the GTD rules, what is their understanding of the principles involved, and why do they choose not to follow the rules in these cases?” 

What an excellent topic. You'll hear from folks what parts of the GTD® methodology they couldn’t live without, plus what modifications or additions they’ve included in their systems. This was a great call, so hit play now!

109: Erik Fisher Teaches Us How To Go Beyond the Todo List!


Erik Fisher, podcaster, blogger, and author, joins us in the latest episode of the GTD Virtual Study Group. Erik wears many hats! In addition to being a husband and dad, he has a day job, runs a successful podcast called, "Beyond the Todo List", and recently co-authored a book called, "Beyond the Todo List: Goals - a step-by-step process to making and meeting the goals that matter".

Erik and I had a great conversation about how he got into productivity, balancing both life and work, and why he continues to learn something new from reading Getting Things Done by David Allen during different periods in his life. Plus, you'll find really great tidbits such as why he believes his superhero name would be, "The Optimizer" and why he believes the perfect system is really about "self-management". There's so much more I really believe you'll learn from listening to this podcast.

Here's some great resources mentioned during the podcast:

...and of course, the list wouldn't be complete unless we added this!
