    3. It feels like a cult
    If GTD feels like a cult, it might be because David Allen is a minister in a church called the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness. The church believes that its founder, Roger Hinkins (who later changed his name to Sri John-Roger), is a Mystical Traveler who has previously appeared as Jesus, St. Francis and Abraham Lincoln. He’s the “J-R” Allen acknowledges at the beginning of the book.

    14. GTD doesn’t leave room for spontaneity and creativity
    It’s hard to be spontaneous and creative when you have to write down absolutely everything you were thinking of doing long before you actually get down to doing it. What if you just feel like going to a museum? Do you have to create a file first or can you go and put the tickets in the folder retroactively?

    According to a 'cult expert' who was recently on Joe Rogan..

    TM (Transcendental Meditation) is a cult too.

    I love hating Howie, just got 2 more reasons. :cheesy:

    Hmmm. I've been thinking a lot of something I need to "get done" lately. You're saying the book won't help, huh?

    If TM could change the world, cure depression, ease the pain of neurosis and holocaust trauma. Why would it cost $2500? After all it's just like brushing your teeth.


    Schtooch to the 34 min mark if interested.

    It's bizarre. I picked this book up at a Borders in 2006. Way the fuck before Howard got into it. It didn't teach me one thing that wasn't common sense. You get things done by being smart and driven and organized.

    The book teaches you not to keep your schedule with fucking post-it notes in your pockets. My favorite Della bate shit to date. Fucking lunatic!

    He resorts to personal attacks as soon as he's challenged. I love Scott Depace. He never backs down. He is not intimidated.

    From what I've read about the book I suspect Howard is so into it because it plays right into his OCD.
