After Chris finally stopped jumping up and down, we sat down to talk all about the Apple Keynote from October 30th. We hear what Chris bought right off the bat, talk a little about the new Macs and a lot about the new iPad Pros. Also, we are doing a Q&A episode next time, so ask us questions!
Jeff is doing a series on GTD, so if you're interested in learning more about it be sure to follow that.
“When I started reading Getting Things Done, I was in a spinning world of chaos. I had many different plates spinning at the same time and no way of making sure that nothing fell through the cracks. I needed a system.
So, as a challenge to both my co-host of A Slab of Glass, Christopher Lawley, and myself I set out to read the book Getting Things Done by David Allen cover to cover to see just if GTD was something that would work for me. After chapter one I was all in."
Chris and Jeff predict what they expect to come with the new iPads, Jeff wants a tweet to be true and Chris reads some tea leaves about the location of the event.
My favorite Twitter client Tweetbot got a major update this week. With some major design changes it feels like a whole new app. There's some hidden easter eggs as well that I’ve noticed people may have missed. If you go into setting, tap Support Tweetbot, and give them a tip you can unlock different themes. After that go into display and you can now change your themes. My personal favorite is Pumpkin.
After sharing their thoughts on GTD, Chris and Jeff talk with David Sparks, a man who needs no introduction with GTD. The three of them talk about their task managers of choice, dealing with overwhelm in their GTD lives, and David shares a wealth of insight in getting started with getting your tasks in order.
