49. How GTD can help reduce burnout

It’s the last episode before our summer break and this is a special one!

This episode contains a longer interview recorded for GTD Connect® members. In this episode, you will hear from Getting Things Done® (GTD) author David Allen and three trainers from our global network, to discuss how GTD can help to reduce burnout. While it has been an issue for years, burnout has been rising steeply since early 2020. The World Health Organization now calls burnout an official medical diagnosis.

It is a result of chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed, and is characterized by three dimensions:

– Feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion

– Increased mental distance from ones job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to ones job

– Reduced professional efficacy

For this discussion, David is joined by Emily Gregory, Morten Røvik, and William Elliott. Morten shared an infographic on the stress curve, which is available for download for GTD Connect® members.
