Hi, my name is Evan.
This is going to be brief, but I want to let you know who, what, why, and how I am so that some of you can relate with me a bit in future posts, in future discussions that we might have, etc. If you get done reading this and think “Wow, I’m nothing like this guy at all. I absolutely cannot relate one bit,” you might want to mosey on over to hear from Will. He’s pretty much my alter-ego, and looks at everything entirely opposite the way I do.
As you’ve probably already learned from our background described in the “About Us” section, I’ve been a ‘GTDer’ for about a year now. I have found nothing that comes close to GTD in terms of a comprehensive and effective work-flow management methodology, so I have enthusiastically absorbed as much knowledge and experience on the topic as possible. I’ve read all three of David Allen’s books, listened to every audio CD they offer, subscribe to their podcast, and I’m a GTD Connect member. So let’s move on to who I am outside of GTD.
I love people, and I love contributing to a greater cause. If I can provide something of value, I certainly want to do everything I can to do so in the most effective way possible. I enjoy helping people that want to help themselves. I love technology, life-hacking, gadgets, all most apple products, entrepreneurship, Star Wars, the US of A, God, and my wife. Those are most definitely not listed in any particular order.
If you care to continue reading, I’d like to share what people have influenced and inspired me up to this point. The reason I’m in a position today to pursue such a project as this is that I’ve absorbed and taken advice from the following:
- David Allen (Getting Things Done)
- Gary Vaynerchuk (Crush It! & GaryVaynerchuk.com)
- Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich & Master Key to Riches)
- Dale Carnegie (How to Win Friends & Influence People)
- John Maxwell (Make Today Count & 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership)
- Tim Ferris (Four Hour Work Week)
- Andrew Warner (Mixergy.com)
I know I’m missing some, but I’m sure I’ll add more later. If there’s anything I’ve learned in the past several years since college, it’s that the best people to learn from are those who are where you want to be in life, and who are willing to share with you how they got there.
So there is “me” in a nutshell. As you can see, I’m a bit random, and my writing style is mostly conversational. I’m always open to hear about how I can improve, though!
I can’t wait to get to know you, and find out how I can help you improve your productivity to enhance your life. Please don’t hesitate for a second to email me and introduce yourself.
Make it a great day!
