David Allen the author of Getting Things Done has a new video on YouTube. The video gives you a look around his office, his desk and his filing system. While he is unpacking from a road trip he shows us his primary capture tools and speaks a little about clearing out his inbox.
He shows us his read and review files, his organization files folders, current projects folders, and his system folders for upcoming meetings or conversations. You can easily see this man is very organized and that he really practices what he preaches
The video is part of “You 2.0” a life hacking documentary currently under production.
Life hacking is about working smarter, not harder. It’s about finding tricks to hack your life to be more organized and get things done. It’s an answer to the problems working in the 21st century brings.
