The fact that so many people I know are reading,have read, are using or trying to use David Allen‘s Getting Things Done system says as much about how maxed-out folks let themselves get as about the value of his work.
I’ve been reading his book (very slowly) for about 10 days, so Scoble’s recent post about the guy (this generation’s Stephen Covey) caught my eye–especially this Scoble-selected list o-links (thanks, man):
- 43 folders
- David Allen’s personal blog
- Jason Womack (David Allen staff trainer)
- Marc Orchant’s Getting Things Done page
Do I have an opinion about Dave Allen’s work yet? Nah, haven’t even made it to the file cards mantra.

Update: Msftie Jeff Sandquist has a getting things done wiki. This I will check out.
