This past year I have been studying the work of Tiago Forte, a San Francisco based productivity consultant. Tiago has been building on the work of David Allen to find ways to enhance the ability of knowledge workers to manage projects and build productive workflows.
In an interview on the podcast, This is Product Management, Tiago presents key concepts such as the development of “meta-skills”, finding focus in any environment, and forming new habits. From the podcast web site:
“Tiago’s approach builds on Allen’s system, applying the latest tools, and accounting for the challenges modern knowledge workers face. Tiago’s approach helps busy people use their brain for thinking instead of storage, break projects into actionable next steps, implement the right tools, and build habits to get work done.”
The interview runs for 35 minutes, but the web page with the podcast provides a handy highlights section if you want to jump to a specific topic. It is well worth a listen.
