I have been GTD for almost a year now and it has truly had an amazing impact on my life. I've successfully introduced it to at least two people that seem to have really had success with it, as well. Unfortunately, the president of my company is not one of those individuals. While I do think he would benefit from learning to GTD, however, his problem is slightly different and I'm not sure what the solution is.
He is probably on the phone or meeting with people about 8-12 hours a day, solving problems and the like. Often, he gets sucked into long-winded conversations or interactions that are really just a big waste of time. In a nutshell, I think he is far too generous in giving of his time to people. the problem is that it keeps him from tending to what he needs to be doing. He rarely even has time to get his basic work done, much less think or stretgize about the future. As a result, he is just not having enjoying his life as much as he could.
So, my question is, has anyone seen or heard of anything that can show/instruct him on how to build some walls in his life or otherwise deal with this situation? I would greatly appreciate whatever light you can shed on this.
