Audible has saved my life! I have an hour and a half commute to LA twice a week and listening to these books helps me stay awake and enjoy the time.
Unoriginal ideas plague this audiobook. I would not suggest this to anyone. Please don't purchase this.
Not worth the money
The ideas are inspiring, well thought out, delivered with passion and confidence and just make sense.
Being so excited at the prospect of organising my systems and looking forward to getting home and dragging all my stuff that was not in the right place into a big pile - a job that would previously have been horrible to think about.
Passion, confidence, obvious years of experience with considered and thoroughly tested suggestions and methods.
It made me excited and energised!
Really made a huge difference for me in my life and I don't usually make grand comments like that.
Insightful, clear, implementable
The two core ideas from this book which resonated with me are:
1) That all our
This book is completely changing my life. I have always felt completely disorganized, but now, as I begin to implement David's system, I can see how I can be more organized, aware, and most important, much less anxious an more present in the moment in both my work and home life.
I not only would listen to GTD again, I have.
Simple, common sense approach.
My favorite uncle
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.
