38. Why I didn’t quit GTD with Jukka Backman

Why haven’t you quit GTD?

That topic recently came up in a conversation with Jukka Backman, partner and managing director for GTD in Finland. Triggered by the article in The New Yorker titled “The rise and fall of Getting Things Done”, we wanted to share some thoughts on this and similar articles in this episode.

Listen to this episode to hear about:

– Our perspectives on The New Yorker piece (spoiler: The headline doesn’t really reflect the conclusions)

– How unofficial sources on GTD can mislead your own implementation

– How misunderstanding the GTD process can lead to searching for “tools that work”

..and much more! And on a very unrelated note, do PhD’s from Finland really receive a top hat and a sword?
