David Allen’s maiden voyage to India generated a lot of buzz. And it resulted in a candid, straight to the point, yet characteristically tongue-in-cheek video interview series that will change the way Indians think of productivity.

In this first instalment, David comes face to face with the underlying philosophy of “jugaad” or “flying by the seat of the pant”, which Indians excel at.

Watch the seven minute segment to:

  • Learn why “jugaad” isn’t really holding you back
  • Understand that the state of productivity is subjective and largely depends on what works for you
  • Know the difference between “information overload” and “meaning overload”
  • Appreciate chaos and how when handled right it can actually spur creativity
