Got a question for David Allen?


We're set to interview David Allen (GTD**) Wednesday.

If you use the Getting Things Done approach, what question would you like me to ask David for you, re being most productive when founding a startup?

Big fan of GTD, great get.

There are lots of tools to manage your basic actions / next-actions; I've used several and many are good.

What I don't see are good tools to manage projects, as opposed to next-actions. To manage the artifacts, schedules, people, etc..

What tools does David recommend for that side of organization?

  • That's a good question to ask. The personal side seems like it's well covered but the broader, organizational side, seems lacking. – Jarie Bolander 14 years ago


Can David recommend tactics for to get better at weekly reviews (both personal and business)? I personally would like to discover profound answers during my weekly reviews but often arrive at a blank thought.

I am new to GTD using it just over a month. Any advice on how to better incorporate unknown factors and unexpected/unplanned events that are very much part of start ups into a GTD system would be appreciated.
