David Allen – Getting it done a second round

Last time he was on our podcast, he was our first international guest. Two years and over 100 podcasts down the line, he is back in our studio for a second round.

We catch up with David on his life, his health and his continuous work for Getting Things Done (GTD). We discuss the difference between free will and free choice. How our human brain works. And the impact that GTD still has on many different lives around the world.

David shares a lot of his knowledge on how to focus and being present. How can we quiet our minds and reach the goals we are aiming for? Why does sleeping on something often work? How can we bypass our conscious condition?

These topics, followed by inspiring quotes such as “Clean your house in order to make a mess” are the basics for this podcast.
