Just Seven Things

Exploring why and how we do what we do, and how we can do it better

Create Structures That Work

Building on my last post, I came upon the following from the master, David Allen, in his GTD follow-up ‘Ready for Anything’:

‘I don’t need discipline. I need a disciplined approach. The creative, active, energetic part of me needs something to do, something that it can do and complete – successfully, now.

The intelligent, sensitive, aware part of me needs to be given an appropriate arena within which to support and express the higher vision and values that lie deeper within. I need to have and to capture creative ideas with abandon.

And I need to have the focused behaviours and systems required to translate them into next actions and physical reality. This is organization development, from the inside out.’

  1. “‘I don’t need discipline. I need a disciplined approach.” Love it… I think I will start using that one!
