Nice to read another blogger with an interest in the intersection between GTD and neuroscience.

This article and trend is nice to see. Especially when distinguished from the watered down, only quasi accurate versions of neuroscience that are becoming all the rage in the classroom and the boardroom.

Ah, I see now from your link to your GTD time stuff that you have a psych background too. From your mention of non-profit work I'm betting that you practice psychotherapy as well too. Nice to know there are more of us in the world.
