Their browser extension works great as does their Mac, iPad and iPhone apps. Given a seed list of Notes or a Notebook, I want Evernote to help me:. Their browser extension could contrast my browsing behavior and work style with what I save into Evernote to learn more about me.
They know my travel habits based on where I save Notes and all of the travel data I store in Evernote. Example: I want to build a list of Venture firms funding healthcare companies. I know that Mattermark and CB Insights have these by segment, but I want my own list and to apply my own logic.
I want to understand all the people that work there and what they are talking about. I want to know about their investments. I want to know when people leave the companies.
I want to dig deeper and see trends using visualizations, etc. I have been to the Evernote conferences, think Phil Libin was a visionary leader selfie there and continue to be a paid user of the product. The exercise of building them and the value they bring to a Mind Mapping or Design process have proved beneficial to me over the years.
Recently, I transitioned from obsessing over providing Developers with APIs that would help them build amazing things with AI to obsessing about Healthcare and how AI can provide better care while lowering costs. Using Areas of Focus in your personal productivity system helps group work into context. I had one Area of Focus for work called PivotDesk. As I went through this exercise, I had a chance to think through the different types of work a Product Manager interacts with to get the job done.
Product Management Idea management, sprint planning, processes, team, budgets, timelines, product roadmaps, internal communication and demos. Feature Development Scoping, customer interviews, idea validation, wireframes, designs, details and QA. Product Marketing Product tour, blog posts, inbound channels, segmenting visitors and drip email campaigns.
When focused on Product Management, my head is very much in business and planning mode. I am such a damn fanboy. Actually, I do know, these guys have executed on big things that impact my daily life and I admire that. However, the community around GTD is weakening. When I started going deeper and deeper into GTD I found myself leaning on gtdconnect and podcasts for inspiration. I realize this sounds lame but I did it and it yielded results. Ex: During the past 2 yrs…. I sought comfort in listening to the same podcasts over and over.
Something about the iteration, background noise and community felt like a massive advantage I had in my corner. As GTD Connect has faded, Kelly Forrester has moved on and the whole thing seems weak, I still occasionally listen to old podcasts but am now rethinking my approach. More presence. My company PivotDesk is based in Boulder, CO, one of the most vibrant business and tech scenes in the world.
If you asked people on the street about GTD maybe 1 would know, this sucks. I would help. Better Software. I use Things. My buddy that has no clue about GTD but crushes it uses Wunderlist. The smartest engineers on our team at PivotDesk use only PivotalTracker and nothing else to manage their own personal life. I have no financial gain or career gain, I just want to help and got a goose egg…boo!
A women in Denver has planned a GTD event in which 3 people show up each month. Where is the support from David Allen Co? They are passionate about what you are selling and you are absent.
Embrace this crew of people. I will continue to be a fanboy in What David has done is amazing and the dude is great. I evangalize GTD, teach people about it, and use the approach every single day. However, as I look to I bet I evolve.
Tell others about GTD, of course. Be a fanboy, probably not. Let me know how I can help. I strive for Inbox Zero but am usually not there. The new Mailbox app enhances the processing phase of the GTD workflow. As you wake up to an inbox with 50 or so new emails as I do each day, Mailbox makes it very easy to archive, delay until later or reply. The interesting part for me is the delay feature. You have to make a decision on every email you read and delay empowers you to control the context in which you want to deal with that email.
Yesterday I received an email from a Vendor that had several contracts attached and was a page long. This clarity enabled me to plow through other emails whereas with Apple Mail or other email clients these emails tended to pile up until I was a bit overwhelmed and put off by my inbox. Recently we have found ourselves with little to talk about related to life tasks and schedules as we leverage basecamp and email for passive communication about life stuff.
However, passive communication can get overwhelming at times. I have found myself barraging Sarah with emails about various life tasks which stresses her out and creates the same problems we were trying to solve with the Life Dinners.
As life tasks crop up that I need to discuss with Sarah, I associate them with her in the Things and wait until our Life Dinner to discuss. I also do this with my boss as we have a weekly video chat standing meeting to review anything outstanding. Using Agendas is a great way to cut down on daily email and task switching while still feeling organized. Within each Theme are several page stories written by Entrepreneurs, VCs and other interesting people in the software, internet, product development, startup realm.

GTD Incompletion Trigger List in OPML
Collecting is the first stage of any kind of organizational work flow. In order to gain control, you need to gather everything that you consider somehow incomplete. The basic principle is that you must know how your world is right now, how the map in which you move looks like , so that you can make a positive commitment to it. There are a lot of things in your life that do not put any pressure on you. It is all those things that are under control. You turn on the computer and you see the application you need with the data you need.
