The Startup Success Podcast

The Startup Success Podcast

Bob and Pat interview David Allen, creator of the Getting Things Done ™ methodology on what GTD can do for you and your startup. If you are feeling overwhelmed by all the projects, tasks, and emails you need to manage to successfully build your product and startup, this show is for you.

We focused in this interview on how to apply GTD to the common problems startups face: coping with email, beating your project/task list down to actionable next steps, how and what a Weekly Review is and how it keeps the process going, what tools and technology David uses and much, much more.

David is a very highly sought productivity consultant and speaker and is the author of the business bestsellers Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity, Ready for Anything: 52 Productivity Principles for Work and Life and most recently Making It All Work: Winning at the Game of Work and the Business of Life.
