This week on the Leadership Podcast, David Allen joins Bradley to discuss how you can actually begin Getting Things Done (GTD).  His system has helped over 2 million people accomplish more with ease and elegance through ​​clearing their mind and sharpening their focus.

David’s 5 Steps to Getting Things Done are based on one simple principle: “Your mind is for having ideas, not holding them.”  He explains that your mind is for having ideas, but most owners expect their brains to “hold” ideas.  The fact of the matter is that your head is a crappy office.  It simply cannot hold everything you’re asking it to.

If you’ve ever found yourself walking around with anxiety because everything you need to do is rolling around in your head, you’re probably not getting things done.  In fact, when you are thinking about everything and trying to handle it all at once, you aren’t going to be very productive.  David shares how to fix this.

Finally, David recommends that you spend time thinking “of” things rather than about things.  This is similar to a principle from E-Myth that Bradley frequently quotes.  Another way to think about it is to work “on” your business rather than “in” your business.

If you’re ready to get everything out of your brain and begin getting it all done, listen to this episode!
