Episode 49: Will Bachman on Getting Some Things Done

January 30, 2018

On the show today Julia Bunte-Mein is back. Julia, a brilliant and accomplished sophomore at Harvard College, spent a day with me on a Winternship. On our last episode, Julia interviewed me about the advice I’d give to my college-age self, and related topics.

On today’s episode, I share the tips that I’ve learned on Getting (Some) Things Done. I loved David Allen’s classic book titled Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity. His system was a bit too complex for me, and I’ll be sharing what I do in practice to get some of the things done that I want to do.

Then in the second half of today’s episode, Julia takes over and shares her productivity routine, which I must say is more disciplined and robust than mine.

One of my goals this year is to improve my own ability to focus and get things done, and if you have tips, send me a message on LinkedIn.

So there’s no one right answer, and in today’s episode you get two sets of ideas to think about incorporating – I hope you find something in here helpful.
