....does not distinguish between work and life... ...the ability to deal with surprise ....mismanaged commitments ....your mind doesn't have a mind to remind it....this is why you need a system ....your mind won't give it up until it can trust you will park it.. .....universally inverse proportion to the amount something is on your mind and the amount it is getting done ....decisions about that thing that you haven't made yet' ....pay attention to where your mind keeps going ....to get things off your mind ...perspective is the master key here, two aspects of self management: control, and perspective. 26:40 self management matrix...Perspective (up) control (across), reactor, (LL), Micromanager (LR), crazy maker (UL), master and commander (UR) ....I fall off regularly, but the trick is recognizing it and bootstrapping yourself back up there... .....Workflow piece (5 keys) .....Perspective piece is Horizon of focus (6 levels), to be able to look at other levels of work and commitment Example, Getting control of reading material...into big box...you have to label it.... now for Perspective, look at the stuff and ask what should you be reading, e.g. which magazines do you need to cancel, and which to renew...now we are into perspective...But the proper order is to get control first....yet there is a high correlation between the two events of control and perspective. 33:31....In chapter 2 of book, is Mastering Workflow (control)1. Collect all the in process stuff (1 - 6 hours) 2. Process, clarify what those things mean, (if you don't do this, the list will create more fatigue), most to do lists are incomplete lists of unclear stuff. 3. Organize and 4. Review Each one of these has its own best and worst work practices, which you can see more details on in the book. 35:30.... 39:23....levels, 50K ft, purpose and principles, 40k ft is vision, 30K ft goals, 20K areas of focus/responsibility 10K ft. projects runway--next actions
One of the first videos I've seen of Allen, after reading the book. It's a great reminder and helped me get the information even more, as it takes time, dedication and practice, but you'll eventually get there... Thanks again David ! It’s a methodology we love to use and explore at Zenkit, makes our team productive and creative...So much that we wrote and article about GTD, we’d love your feedbacks: http://blog.zenkit.com/a-beginners-guide-to-getting-things-done-3cc1a5123b98
Disagree with the automation, but it's not in a way tha the system tells you to do it. It will work out more in a way where it guides your attention to what is reasonable next, that you can better stay in the flow or find your way into it. It will only work for Tasks at the Screen though. I often feel myself be lost, like I during writing some code my mind gets struck by a lightning and I have an Idea which I should not forget then I decide to write that down, open the browser tab to do that, sometimes it happens that the moment I do this my mind becomes empty. I have no Idea what the Idea was and sometimes spend up to 20 minutes to recover it. It's the battle flow vs. context switch. And this battle can be optimally solved by a specific consistent Environment which leads the attention to where it should be. I don't even know why I came to that video and moreso why I'm working it^^ just because it's available and the flow lead to it. Some minutes Ago I defined my latest tasks xD and the current one is to figure out how to use git submodules xD hahaha So the documentation was too weird that I searched for instructional videos, and one thing lead to another... Google is mixing too much different phases and contextes in which I'm currently looking at things and provides recommendations and searchresults fitting to that mixed context pot. Even though Google is my standard tool to find things etc. we need the next level as google was back then in 1998
I found videos by Brian Tracy to be short and very helpful. http://youtube.com/watch?v=UPcLkAqS_GE
I normally love Dave Allen but this wasn't funny at all
Oh Almost watched it ...comments kinda save me🤣
My notes: - Distributed cognition - Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Distributed_cognition - GTD: move you from hope to trust - work ~> concentrate ~> eliminate distraction distraction is created by mismanaged commitments - your mind is limited in its ability to manage commitments, because it's handicapped in its ability to remember and remind but until it trusts there is a better system, it cannot let go of the job - the amount something is ON your mind is usually inverse proportional to the amount it is getting done if you don't give appropriate attention to what has your attention, it will take more of your attention than it deserves - in order to get things off your mind, you must know that: + you have captured, clarified, and organized your commitments, at all horizons + you will engage consciously with them as often as you need to - your ability to refocus, rapidly, on the right things at the right horizon at the right time is the master technique of knowledge work athletics + e.g., at 3:15, know what's the thing i need to focus on, and refocus rapidly - perspective is your slipperiest and most valuable commodity ~> methods for maintaining perspective are your most important tools - 2 aspects of self-management + control :: conscious focused engagement aware of all options at any one time and place + perspective :: aligned and clear about decisions, directions, and priorities | | ✘ control | ✔ control | |---------------+-------------+--------------------| | ✘ perspective | reactor | micro manager | | ✔ perspective | crazy maker | master & commander | - GTD models + mastering workflow :: 5 keys to gaining control collect process organize review do + horizons of focus :: 6 levels of work (go bottom up to change) purpose, principles vision goals areas of focus/responsibility projects next actions + the old models... only dealt with one aspect, not complete compressed the models (SOLUTION: do not do 5 workflow keys at the same time) disconnected from reality system-dependent (SOLUTION: be system-independent) - how i came up with this i needed a better job i'm lazy i'm enthralled with efficient process i value clear space
i am amazed that this guy has taken about 39 minutes so far just to tell me how important it is to write things down. Seriously? Is this the level of consciousness of humans? That we need 40 minutes to learn the importance of writing things down? I mean, geez,..we must not be this stupid as a human race that we need 40 minutes to teach and learn the importance of writing things down. How much did this guy get paid by Google? I would have felt ripped off that he used 40 minutes to tell people how important it is to write things down...like was that a $5-10K speech? Wadda rip off...

Love this video! it's enlightening... and empowering.
20 years ago I started with the 7 Habits, then I came across Kaizen. My life is still a ... To me it seems David Allen knows what he´s talking about... At least he gives me hope !! And the spirit to get started with GTD...

additional mre for knowlede change improving
I recommend a book that complements this video well. The One Thing by Gary W. Keller He talks about how we can increase our productivity by changing how we focus. Most of us lack the control that highly effective people have. The outcome is spending our own time on less effective things. Keller talks about many more things on the subject. I hope this helps anyone who really wants to learn how to increase their effectiveness.
33:57 if I go back to your desk right now, anything that is not supplies, reference material, decoration or equipment represents some commitment you've made to make something different. Because those are the only four things the belong where they are the way they are. Everything else is in process stuff.
9:38 So the information overload people are in deep trouble, if information overload was the issue you would walk into a library and die. The first time you surfed the web you would just blow up. Actually the first time you walked through nature you'd blow up.That is why nature is so relaxing because of the infinite variety of information it feeds your brain. 10:18 the brain actually relaxes with the more horizons that it can range in that will map to the sophistication of whatever that computer is in there,interestingly enough. Its not potential information overload it is potential meaning overload that is not evident when you first see that email.
You can best watch this video after slightly looking into GTD.. It makes the whole thing fall into context more.. So make sure you roughly understand what GTD means before watching.
what a wonderful video
Go on to email only
GTD could be helpful but this presentation was BAD.
Thank you for posting and sharing this.Makes clear sense.Thanks!
Sorry but this is awful so I've given up I guess if you want to let your mind wander watch this video.
His presentation is more messy than the book. And I always found the book 'stating the obvious' many times, jumping back and forth. Anyway, kudos to David Allen for GTD, I use it and love it :)
Not a great presentation, but let's hope the book is better.
Holy Christ...WTF is this ? I almost wasted 45min of my life....this stinks! The book has one principle that is good. Make a list----in each task you have, make sure you figure out WHAT THE NEXT STEP IS. That's it. I just saved you hundreds of dollars and 100's of hours.
GTD principle is great, but do not spend time on this video. Spend the time to read about it and practice it instead!
I appreciate Google sharing this and I appreciate Allen`s "Getting Things Done" system but much like Allen`s book, his live presentation is just so cluttered with unnecessary talk/chatter. He is trying to say too much too fast and it all gets lost and confusing, much like his book. I really wish Allen would take his own advice and simplify his message which is not that difficult. He wants to break everything down to these small incremental steps which start to get a bit hectic but really what it comes down to is 1) Collect (or write down) what you need to get done, 2) Decide what needs to get down immediately or later, and 3) Take action towards getting it down. Thats simple enough but he stretches these simple concepts into 200+ page books and videos like this where he rambles on and on. Granted, he`s charging Google tens of thousands for these few minutes but geez, can he get any more confusing?
i want to be you great friend
I spent he first half thinking 'get on with it, tell us' he does - stick with it, and watch it once more tomorrow .... the front half seems much more relevant on a second viewing!
Super cool video. Love these ideas to help me stay organized and be efficient.

I'll have to get this book...when my "to read" pile is empty, lol: 30:58
This GTD method has completely changed my way of working! His book is a goldmine for productivity, every manager, or better, everyone should read it! I also found an application for iPad (my privileged work tool) that manage to integrates the GTD method in its process. The app (called Beesy), is all-in-one an suits perfectly for profesionnal handling lots of meetings. Anyway, thanks to this method (and also Beesy) I manage impressive gains of productivity I never thought I was able to manage.
I really admire this talk, it breaks it down on what we go thru mentally in our mind. (excuse my English). One thing that is missing but is Motivation to actually do the things we need to get done, We can prioritize it, organize it, eliminate distractions and the final step is DO, but the motivation sometime lacks, but he talks about the having zero inbox, is what helps us deal with the surprises. I really enjoyed this video and basically enjoyed the Perspective/Control Quadrant, while I watch this I still have to get my work done, and motivation/discipline I still lack, but it is by looking at myself and what I am going thru that hypes me up and do it. I would recommend this video as an educational tool for a deep look into the process of getting things done, and to look for your own motivation and discipline to achieve things.
Who shoots these things and who's the chick peering behind the curtain offstage? Someone else in the shot is annoying when you're meant to focus on the speaker. C'mon Google, you're supposed to be pros! Otherwise, great presentation.
45 mins can be summed up as follows... write a todo list!
What an idiot. I cannot believe Goodgle employees waste their valuable time listening to this moron. I've enjoyed the other talks from Google, but this guy is a waste of my time.
Everyone should be taught this. You see bits and pieces of this in successful people. This talk puts it all together.
Dobry nebudeme sklama
Google task developer is probably the lady peaking through the door behind the speaker during the presentation.
You must have run into the 500 character limit to end that last sentence without tacking on "you repetitive gutter brain". Still, it was a nice change of cadence, and the hallmark of great writing is to successfully exploit the limits of form, so props are due. If only you had run into that limit halfway through your second sentence, where it could have benefited all that follows, your post would have been even better.
Um... your theories fly in the face of reality. You will agree that Chinese workers are treated more like animals than US workers right? Why then are they more productive? Why is China the country with the most patent filings since 2011? You don't make any sense. I'm tired of listening to your dribble. You do not need to respond to this comment because I will no longer read your comments and respond to yours.
You're not making any sense. Come back down to Earth and be among the rest of us.
I thought it was the government's job to make sure everyone had a home not the corporations.
... That's the thing about GTD, to work smarter and not harder.
Not true. There are different levels of understanding. Sometimes when a person focuses on one thing, he can miss another. Ever see a movie twice? Other things make more sense the second time around.
The fact that you read the book three times makes me think the message hasn't gotten across.
goood point, sir
I watched 12 minutes of this video and still nothing of substance. Backing out.
what a relief to know that even dave himself falls off the gtd wagon!
40:00 implementation and debt clearing capability FIRST! then 37:09 what is this about? what is your intentionality? why are you on the planet? how are you doing? what are your core values? what's really, really, really, (really) important to you? 39:00 fulfill human destiny
One way to save time is not to watch this video. He goes on and on and on saying basically nothing. I was sorting laundry and cleaning dishes and other housework while listening to him yammering. Hopefully Google didn't actually pay him for this talk. He never says anything useful or actionable about his GTD method.
dear gmail people my gmail is firstname.lastname@example.org
This was good.

Be someone who dives in and gets it done.
I´m a fan of the GTD method. But the videos on YouTube are too long. I've done one of eight minutes (theory and practice) . The GTD has been an inspiration to me company.Hope you like
Thank you for uploading. All of this presentation could've been shortened down in half. Is there a second part, where he is actually speaking about the GTD system?
I would have probably got more things done today if I hadn't been distracted by this for 45 minutes.
He seems to also live up on 2 liters of coffee before his presentations! lol
ok,, i get the idea of the lecture,, is to accomdate ur mind with its high ability to accomdate with ur life situation,, but what if you do not want to accomdate with it,,what if your nature does not suit this type of life,, some people love freedom,they do not like to be watched,, they are creature of nature,, they just like to be in nature with any one watch them,, they like to have there space,, so changing there nature can not help them
How? Definitely get a copy of the book, "Getting Things Done". If you're a cheapskate like me, check out a copy at your local library. I liked what I read so much, I broke down and bought a copy (again, cheapskate-style: half.com). The book goes into detail as to the "how" of the system. I'm re-reading the book for the 3rd time. Wouldn't say I'm a total devotee, but, some really good stuff in the system.
This sounds great, but how do you do this "system"? Presentation didn't really explain it. I have a "To Do" list on my whiteboard hanging on my bedroom wall. And I agree, they don't get erased on a daily basis. Some of the "to dos" like "Thank you notes" sit there forever.

Man shouldnt follow man, man can learn from man, and always seek better ways of doing everything including what you devote your life to.
Most likely making money first because people all wish they could change but don't , but will still buy the books hoping that walking by them and having them on a shelf will change your life. well I want to to have a great body so I'm going to the gym and take a nap, workout are you crazy. lol
hey if he lives 10,000 years he gonna need more women, whose going to stay with a guy who wants it all, including your sister,lol
Let's sum up what he said, have a goal, make a list, getter done.
the age of a book is not important as long as it can still apply to today's world. there's ton of sayings and good advice that's thousands of years old. Also I learned more from my great grand father sitting on the porch than my parents talking at me, not with me.
some people hear, others listen, wonder which your BS detectoris set on. I learned in one video once as i was about to doze off, how to fix my credit and buy a house nothing down and put money in your pocket, funny thing ,the word credit or house were never used, it set off a trigger. you can learn from a poor homeless soul,if you listen,and not hear.
Darn just when I thought you were'nt getting it, you shocked me, you got it perfect, I mean you summed it up perfectly, thank you.
I love it. why do you punish yourself and watch educational seminars and go back to cartoon network.
Nobody goes to a ten minute seminar, maybe they can edit the video.
you most likely have there IQ and there build.
I agree with you and will share what I learned with my kids and clients. there's a lot of good stuff in here, I don't care if its a hundred years old.
Not everyones brain is full of everything including Crap, sometimes something like this can give you one Idea or remind you of one, it's all good for diferent reasons for different people cut them some slack and dont watch.

“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” ~Jim Rohn
This video was uploaded over four and a half years ago. Why is google tasks still a piece of shit?
And one more thing, his theatrics is pissing me off, why can't he just get to the point and it'll all be over in 10 minutes, now thats getting things done but quicker.
I'm not entirely sure if this is a new system, I think its called goal setting. The problem with goal setting or a 'to do' list is once you have your list there are items there that feel difficult to do so self motivation and its opposite laziness are things one has to deal with particularly if their things you hate doing.
Open your mind to the idea that you cannot guarantee that. Accommodate the possibility that somebody's "unik" may include the capacity to change. I sure hope I never get stuck in an elevator with you...
David U did a good presentation and the subject matter is worth. I have just one observation to make with due respect to your personality. When u did the talking all by yourself without audience participation, don't you think some members of the listening audience were not carried along? Once again, it was an excellent presentation.
sure you are. that's good, but he's getting paid to fo it. you're not... are you?
This video is full of great ideas for the GTD enthusiast! It is a useful video for someone who has already started using GTD. It is less useful for someone who never heard of GTD, because the video does not cover all the basics and all the details. It is more about advanced stuff. "The younger you are, the more you are interested in the GTD quick tips&tricks. The more senior you are, the more you are interested in the entire GTD systematic approach." - David Allen
