Are you out of your mind? | David Allen | TEDxCuracao


Video Details

Most people are trying to manage much of their life and work in their minds, but your head is a lousy office! Recent cognitive science research has proven its limitations for remembering, reminding, and prioritizing. In this humorous talk Allen emphasizes the need to keep track of any and every thing that we need to be reminded of in an "external brain," making room for more creativity, intuitive thinking, and just being present. David Allen is one of the world’s most influential thinkers on productivity. He has earned the titles of “personal productivity guru” by Fast Company Magazine and one of America’s top 5 executive coaches by Forbes Magazine. The American Management Association has ranked him in the top ten business leaders. His bestselling book ‘Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity’ has been published in thirty languages and its methodology has become a global phenomenon. David is dedicated to teaching people how to stay relaxed and productive in our fast paced world. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
