Your ability to generate power is directly proportional to your ability to relax

David Allen, Getting Things Done

“Your ability to generate power is directly proportional to your ability to relax.”

Who said it: David Allen

David is a productivity consultant but what I know him best for is a brilliant little book called “Getting Things Done”.

Why I like it:

I’ve been a project manager for more than 20 years, and over that time I’ve implemented numerous systems in order to ensure my team and I were productive. This has included my very own 55% rule. We live in a world where so much is coming at us day in and day out that we tend to drown in a bucketload of stress each and every day. Keeping my team relaxed and on track is so important on every project we do. I use this quote to focus myself so that I can help my team relax into a job to then power up to get it done.
