Column: This David Allen also gives people the business


Productivity expert David Allen meets nonsense expert David Allen.

Friday’s column (read it here) is about my meeting a more famous David Allen…and his meeting a less famous one. Here’s his website and here’s his Wikipedia entry.

    Don’t forget about UCLA football player David Allen, from Pasadena. Maybe he could get you on the field, and a “free” jersey (which is likely an NCAA violation, though).

    [Too late, I did forget about him. But now you’ve reminded me. I also forgot about Davie Allan, the fuzz-tone rock guitarist and leader of Davie Allan and the Arrows. Met him in Montclair circa 2002 when he performed at the drive-in as part of a ’60s-themed party. Bought some CDs from him and he signed them. — DA]

    You could start a Think Tank called, the “Allen Group” and dabble in whatever you choose. Every member must be named David Allen. So far, one is a motivational speaker, one is a college football player, one is a news reporter/columnist, one is a rock star, and so on. Keep adding to your group and, who knows, you might set a Guiness record of something. Aside from that, the Inland Empire’s famous David Allen is our newspaper columnist.

  • Will Plunkett

    And yours is apparently an easier name to find, David: there’s only a character actor Will Plunkett, a local sports columnist Bill Plunkett, and a fictional character Will Plunkett from the film Plunkett and Macleane. That’d be all I could find for my think tank. And former football player Jim Plunkett WILL always be our grand marshal for the parades we’ll be given…
