  • Fact Company Interview

    Hi everyone,

    I found an interview that David did with Fast Company - much like chapters 1-2 of the book, but with a slightly different perspective. I read it and relaly like it, since it really cuts to the chase of the purpose of GTD.

    I really liked the point about managing one's aspirations. This is a really overlooked point - it seems that most of the self/energy/time management stuff is about doing more and more, and this is one of the first times I've heard someone say the opposite.

    I'd like to get your comments.

    This was a great article, and even though it was published in May 2000 the concepts are mirrored almost word-by-word in the FAST CD.

    For me, the single most important concept from GTD at this point has been the realization of what it means to recognize that "You can do anything, but you can't do everything." The stress of infinite opportunity can easily cause us to take on too much, since every opprtunity can be viewed as something worthwhile and therefore I ought to be involved in it. That's a lesson I've learned, now comes the hard task of incorporating it.
