The C.O.W.S. GETTING THINGS DONE Part II

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the second study session on David Allen’s phenomenally successful text, Getting Things Done: The Art Of Stress-Free Productivity. Allen is a White Man (Racist Suspect), but his principles should be of value to Victims of Racism. He emphasizes the importance of maximizing engagement and focus in the mist of chaos and disorder; as the System of White Supremacy is designed to keep non-white people in perpetual confusion and disorder, his strategies might be immediately applicable. Our first session focused on the importance of getting information out of our head and into an organized format that can be easily referenced and checked on a daily or weekly basis. He also stressed CONTEXT – meaning the energy and other resources that will be necessary to complete a given task. This week’s installment will pick up on chapter three – which suggest an efficient means for completing projects. Allen – like Neely Fuller, Jr. stresses the importance of purpose (Why are we doing this?).
