I think Getting Things Done appeals to geeks for a lot of reasons. Overgeneralizing for effect:
- geeks are often disorganized or have a twisted skein of attention-deficit issues
- geeks love assessing, classifying, and defining the objects in their world
- geeks crave actionable items and roll their eyes at “mission statements” and lofty management patois
- geeks like things that work with technology-agnostic and lofi tools
- geeks like frameworks but tend to ignore rules
- geeks are unusually open to change (if it can be demonstrated to work better than what they’re currently using)
- geeks like fixing things on their own terms
- geeks have too many projects and lots and lots of stuff
Well, GTD does not appeal to me (even though I have already written a short note about it ), but all of the above points…. man, that’s me !
I’m so glad not be alone in this world. Now, where can I have a t-shirt like this ?
