I am re-listening to the "GTD Fast” CDs.
If anyone was laboring under the illusion that GTD is somehow a “passive” or a “reactive” system, well then you need to listen to these CDs. They will blow away any notion of passivity you may have.
The book may leave some people thinking: “well, now I’ve got all my open loops neatly labelled/listed/NA’d, tickled etc; is that all there is?”, and it may lack the message – “Ok, you’ve got all that crap out of your head, now here is what you are REALLY capable of”.
The CDs make up for this and deliver a sense of potential in truckloads. They clearly convey the fact that most of us are caught up in a mighty river of ongoing change (commonly know as the office) and that there is no shortage of momentum available in an everyday business. With GTD you can tap into that momentum without having your head wrecked with overload.
The CDs are awash with the energy that the system promises to those who use it to free up their intelligence. If I start to quote them I will just end up transcribing the whole lot: he really has packed 20 years of experience in there.
For me it is a vital refresher.
