Product Image: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity, 1. Getting Things   Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity by David Allen (Author) ...
My rating: 5 out of 5

Why would I review a book that I haven’t finished reading yet? Because this book is changing my life. David Allen is my guru. He’s the reason I’m actually posting today.
Allen’s guide to rearranging and taking control of both your business and personal life is simple to read and even simpler to put into practice. It’s not another artsy fartsy tome on harnessing your inner power or the value of crystals. Instead, it’s page after page of concrete actions that allow you to bring order back to your life. I’ve been more productive at work over the last week than I have in years. I control my day and the feeling is awesome.
Nothing Allen suggests is groundbreaking or unique. He just shows you how to do things that empower you. I can see my desk, my inbox is usually empty and I’ve even found time to plan!

  1. Just curious if this is still working out for you. I’m reading this book right now for the third time, partly because of your blog entry.

    I need to read it again, because I usually get started and I’m all enthusiastic, but after a week or two, things just start piling back up again, so I’m curious if you’re letting that happen as well, and I figure you’ve had enough time now to fall off the program.

    In an unrelated note, there’s something wrong with this comment entry form, so I’m typing most of this blind, undertyping the books in the right-hand column.

  2. Hey Chris, good to hear from you. I’ll have to check on the layout.

    GTD requires constant work. I found the same thing and I try and spend part of Sunday morning getting myself back on track.
