043 Engage (Part 1) – Getting Things Done (GTD) – ProductivityCast

This is episode five, on Step Five of the Workflow Diagram / Map, Engage (Do), in our nine-part series on the Getting Things Done (GTD) personal productivity methodology and eponymously-titled book, from the perspective of the ProductivityCast team–as long-term practitioners, critics and observers of GTD.

When it comes to your real-time, plow-through, get-it-done workday, how do you decide what to do at any given point?

As I’ve said, my simple answer is, trust your heart…your gut, the seat of your pants, your liver, your intuition—whatever works for you as a reference point that has you step back and access whatever you consider the source of your inner wisdom.

David Allen

In this cast, we cover the concept of Engage / Engaging (formerly Do / Doing) on your system on a frequency and in methods that work for you, so that you can iterate on your productivity and make strategic next action decisions as your life and work circumstances change.
