Guardian's David McCandless talks about his experience with David
Allen's Getting Things Done (GTD) and shares some nice lessons learned.
He also talks a bit about why GTD is so popular on the Web.
On the web, for example, Getting Things Done (GTD) has gone
supernova. Web and IT professionals have taken Allen's core ideas and
refined them into ever more effective tips called “life hacks”.
Adherents swap these across a broad network of blogs, wikis and
websites such as 43Folders.com – all amid a considerable amount of
one-upmanship over who has the biggest and best system.
It's an interesting read and might be a good introduction to those who wonder what all the hype is about.
