I spent 2 weeks with the audible of David Allen’s book Getting Things Done. I am super excited to see this interview and join the discussion afterwards to make the most out of this.

Good book! I read Getting Things Done about 1,5 years ago. I remember I did the same brain dump exercise back then. Wish I have the list now. After reading this book I started using Wunderlist for keeping track of my outcomes and todos and I have improved my productivity and consistency a lot.
