Don’t you just love this? David Allen is the creator/author of Getting Things Done – Five Steps that Apply Order to Chaos. Well, if things in the world and in our lives aren’t chaotic, I don’t know how else to characterize them! Scroll down and there’s a video of David Allen speaking about stress free productivity.
Life is messy. We need to examine what we do and change our behaviours (where have we heard this before?). Allow the world into your psyche but manage the inputs (the overwhelming stickiness and mess) so that you can find the time to be creative, recognize opportunity, make the psychological space to think. He calls it ‘psychic bandwidth’. Great advice for writers and multi-taskers!
