    Ep 192: David Allen talks with Bruce Fetzer

    Ep 192: David Allen talks with Bruce Fetzer

    Bruce Fetzer took a productivity training with David Allen in the 1980s. Since then he has been applying what he learned. His work with the John E. Fetzer Memorial Trust has been his major focus in the last few years. The mission of the trust is to advance integrated, relational views of reality through exploring scientific frontiers and universal spiritual practices. David Allen engages Bruce in a discussion of the role of business in doing good work through meta-science, or the study of the scientific method. They also explore how to integrate inner life with outer action.
    There is a free biography of John E. Fetzer available from the Fetzer Trust site.

Helpful info but audio needs work

Helpful and insightful info, but please get Mr. Allen a better microphone. There’s an echo and also a lot of excess background noise that makes the podcast unpleasant to listen to. Could also try to edit the sound from the guests as well.

Great insight into GTD

I am relatively new to GTD and this podcast gave me lot of valuable tips
My favorite episode is the one about integrating horizons which really helped me bring it all together illustrating how ground level can take you towards higher levels!
Thank you David and Anna Maria!

What a lovey, practical, and generous gift right now. The wacky little bursts of clicky keyboard typing make me smile!!! Thanks David— you’re a balm.
