GTD-With came about after years of work on productivity, and time management. It also involved an endless number of useful applications and to-do lists.
It is the brain child of Derek Reinhard, whose professional career spans decades of productivity in various styles. He began with the old productivity card folios of the 1980’s when he was a mainframe computer operator, then to checklists and time management during his 20-years serving in the United States Air Force as a pilot and staff officer, and on to the early days of productivity systems with Franklin-Covey and David Allen.
His curiosity and passion for all things having to do with efficiency keeps him experimenting and improving. His love of teaching has similarly kept him involved. He was an instructor pilot in fighters and basic fast-jets early in his USAF career, and then went on be a certified Franklin-Covey instructor for two organizations.
Derek lives in Northern Virginia. His hobbies are traveling far and wide to enjoy the sites, sounds, and food. He also reads non-fiction, and magazines such as The Atlantic and Foreign Affairs.
Derek also founded and ran Healthy Schools International, Inc for 10 years. It was an all-volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit, which brought clean water, safe sanitation, and solar electricity to schools in Africa.
