Hyperefficiency and shedworking


In an interesting article in Wired, Getting Things Done Guru David Allen and His Cult of Hyperefficiency, , Gary Wolf describes Allen as specialising "in curing the psychic pain caused by the pressure of time. Allen's work has become the touchstone of the life-hacking movement, a loosely knit network of psychological self-experimenters who share tips about how small changes in human behavior can bring big rewards in happiness." The article goes on to explain in considerable detail Allen's tips on improving your lot and also includes the photo above by Robyn Twomey of his garden office. Here's how Wolf describes it:
"His personal headquarters is still in the small guesthouse at the back of his property, with indoor-outdoor carpet on the floor, a plain desk in the entryway for an assistant, and a 100-square-foot office where he works when not on the road."

Thanks to Steve G for the alert.
