Perspective and Control

David Allen calls it "captain and commander," a state of perspective and control nirvana that allows you to have mind like water. But how do you get there? In this episode, we talk about capture, weekly review, and the other GTD skills that are needed to get you in the upper-right quadrant. We also had a surprise special guest, Renzo Borgatti, who gave us the low-down on the Pomodoro Technique as a means of gaining greater control over distraction and increasing focus. Download the podcast here.

Lots of links were mentioned:
The Pomodoro Technique (with links to the eBook, cheat sheet, and much more here)

Another handy Mac only timer (that ticks)
