Q: What was the inspiration for GTD? Was there an “a-ha” moment when you realized that the existing methods just didn’t work for you?
David Allen: No overnight epiphanies. Lots of trial and error, but with a overriding interest in how to create and maintain “clear space”. I hate unproductive stress, and as my awareness and sensitivities improved about that, so did my discoveries of what processes helped alleviate it.
