…thank you and keep up the good work.

I just wanted to say thank you for doing the podcasts. As an avid podcast listener and devoted GTDer, I was thrilled to discover them. I really enjoy listening to you talk about the principles and practical examples of GTD. (For some reason, it has this calming effect on me. Like yoga or buddhism or something.) Anyway, I first read GTD and made some changes and saw some big effects in my productivity. Recently I revisited the principles (I am currently reading Mr Allen's book 'Making it all work') and gave my system a "spring clean". Over time, I'd been putting things on the wrong lists, started extraneous lists I didn't really need, was doing too much inefficent 'copying and pasting' between lists while doing my reviews, and so on. I then - this coincided with me discovering both your and the American podcasts - sat down with a pen and paper and worked through my lists from first principles. The result: fewer lists, a much clearer head and a great feeling of freedom. I've shifted my productivity up a gear yet am more relaxed than before. And, once again, to say thank you and keep up the good work. I really enjoy listening!
