The Year You Were Born May Make GTD Impossible
Generational differences can make a big difference in how we view productivity and how we can organize ourselves. The interview below with Jessie X — who just happens to have studied generational differences, as well as how different generations handle different types of technology — explores those generational differences. You can listen to the audio or read the transcript.
A couple of key take-aways I thought were especially important:
- GTD appeals directly to the way Generation X processes and handles tasks. But we’ll probably see something very different appealing to millennials in terms of how that generation will really manage productivity.
- We’re only just starting to reach a point when Generation X can really move to the front in big organizations and make their tools the official way to do things.
- How each generation views gender can play a big role in how we talk about the systems we use, although it may have less of an impact on the actual systems we choose.
