GTD: A Higher Level Approach to Personal Effectiveness

One of the reasons GTD has achieved great recognition as a personal productivity system is that it doesn’t reduce our daily activity to a simple set of tasks to be marked as done.

We’re human beings, and our actions must respond to something deeper.

Viktor Frankl, an Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist, as well as a Nazi concentration camp survivor, wrote the book Man’s Search for Meaning.

This means that we’re capable of responding to a stimulus in a completely different way to what our instincts suggest and even to what we have been taught.
