In this episode, Dr. David Hanscom talks with David Allen, bestselling author of Getting Things Done, about how his approach can help you put steps into action once you've learned about chronic pain and are ready to take control of your life again. He explains the value of starting where you are and not where you should be, and using a step-by-step approach to get the day-to-day things under control first. He discusses how to organize your thinking, and build up an “external brain” - e.g., a computer app or a piece of paper - to capture what you need to do and stay engaged to get it done.
