In episode #76 of You Leading You, David Allen, author of Getting Things Done, a book Time Magazine named in 2007 as THE self help business book of all time, as well as the Founder of the GTD work-life management system, and an individual considered to be one of the world’s most influential thought leaders on productivity, talks to us about the path that brought him to create this far reaching and life changing system. From training 1,000’s of executives, to being a keynote speaker for NY Life, The Ford Foundation, L.L. Bean and the U.S. Navy to name a few, David has traveled many roads, which has led him to being a leader for so many others to reach their goals.

David gets his You Leading You Moment done by:
Always making sure that he has an ankle tether, just like a very professional surfer, on his higher self. It allows him to remember that we are not perfect, and helps us when we fail, as well as keeping us on our path. This keeps him in touch with the bigger focus of his universe.
