“Your ability to generate power is directly proportional to your ability to relax.”

– David Allen

Who said it: David Allen

David is a productivity consultant but what I know him best for is a brilliant little book called “Getting Things Done”.

Why I like it:

I've been a project manager for more than 20 years, and over that time I've implemented numerous systems in order to ensure my team and I were productive.

This has included my very own 55% rule. We live in a world where so much is coming at us day in and day out that we tend to drown in a bucketload of stress each and every day.

Keeping my team relaxed and on track is so important in every project we do.

I use this quote to focus myself so that I can help my team relax into a job to then power up to get it done.
