Smart Quotes: David Allen’s Top 10 GTD Tweets
Something a little different today. Recently David Allen (just some guy who developed this thing called GTD, heard of him?) passed the one million followers mark on Twitter. Maybe I’m biased because Twitter is the only social networking site I actually have any interest in (in contrast to all my friends Facebook luvin’) but I find it’s great for getting little bitesized bits of insight and information. Naturally David Allen is no different when it comes to sharing pearls of productivity related wisdom so it seemed like a good idea to compile his top ten tweets. Enjoy!
