Misused GTD is a problem. Cal's problem.

If someone does not accomplish anything remarkable it does not mean that the method he uses is not appropriate. It may mean that the method is misused.
I hope Cal is not trying to build his career on questioning everything.
Different measurements in different fields
Seems he thinks only ideas have value. In his world, that may be true...but not in mine. I like some of what Cal says, though: his book about not trying to "find your passion" when you're first starting a career should be a must-read for every young person.
Sorry, Cal. Most of us will need to crank some widgets to stay employed/make clients happy. :D
"So Good They Can't Ignore You" - great book.
I agree. "So Good They Can't Ignore You" is a must-read and I consider it to be a perfect match for "Getting Things Done" by David Allen. It is very unfortunate that Cal doesn't see a connection.
