I’ve helped a number of people at work and elsewhere with “personal productivity stuff” by steering them to David Allen’s book “Getting Things Done”, things Merlin Mann has written or said on a podcast, Scott Hanselman’s talk “Scale Yourself” — among other resources.

While I’m happy to be able to help others make improvements where I have also iterated and improved, I can’t help but feel like sort of a “Second-hand meta wizard”.

I suppose all the folks listed above that have inspired me were at one point also inspired by others before them. I guess the takeaway is summed up by a poster I like that reads “Be inspired, inspire.”
