Excellent advice. I got a lot out of it and had my husband is listening to the book, who is a small business owner. He is implementing some of the things he learned.
You really need to read the book, but the audio book helps to reinforce and solidfy the concepts.
Yes. This is the type of book you learn new things from each time you go through it.
There's not a real story to this book but its structure keeps your interest and flows very. It was basically the cheapest professional development course I've ever taken.
I found this book extremely helpful, easy to listen to, and almost immediately useful. Some reviews say the organization system is too complicated. What I found to be the case was that the fundamental principles were very easily implemented after I was able to adopt this new way of thinking which is also easy.
Like any other tool, you can use as much or as little as you need to. Since implementing these tools, I don't loose track of ANYTHING - and people have actually commented to me about it - unelicited.
The book has some good ideas but it also has alot of unusable concepts. The author does a good job of staying relatively technology agnostic which is good and bad. Bad because it doesn't really help you implement any suggestions but good because he isn't describing software that is unusable if you are locked into one solution. Also he has many low tech solutions although I believe he spends way too much time romanticizing them. There was at least 10 minutes of explaining how satisfying nice filing cabinets were.
Seems the author was tainted by being forced to do outlines and structure when he did not want to earlier in life. He offers great tips but the perspective was built too much on the failure of former systems rather than the consideration that different systems work for different personalities.
I +1 Books.
One of the best book on the market. If you have a problem with productivity or have too much things on your head – just buy this book… Just Do IT. I’m using modifiedd GTD system for months.
This is good to listen to if you're having trouble going to sleep. BUT the info is useful. This is the closest thing to an infallible organization system I've come across.
I listened to this book when taking on several new work tasks. It provides intelligent strategies in a well-organized format, with pleasant presentation. Best parts included tips for using time wisely even when computer is not available.
I thought it dragged on too long with too many tiny details. I just ordered the abridged edition hoping it is an easier listen.
Also, this was supposed to come with an attached PDF outline. How do I find this PDF?
