Things started off well, but around the halfway point when he went into concrete examples of how to get organized he lost me. Although he makes some passing mention of modern tools such as PDA's (but not smartphones) and MS Outlook, he spends a LOT of time talking about paper-based filing and labeling as well as the use of old fashioned note-taking. Who the heck needs to buy a Brother label maker nowadays? Why should I use a legal pad for day-to-day planning? Apparently he still sees such things as indispensable for someone wanting to get organized. He seriously needs to update this book if he wants his message to stay relevant.
It is the first time I am not able to finish and audible book. It was just too boring. This book makes management of time a nightmare! It is way to complicated for nothing. If you are looking for a good book on time management, go with the author Brian Tracy.
the book is good help and I am using it now,
it need a fast flow chart on how to Do it from the start to the end
This book is amazing. Imagine being able to clear your head of things you need to do, and want to do in the future so you can have a fresh perspective on your work life and you home life, this book and it's techniques will provide this for you if you follow his guidlines.
I continue to work toward GTD nirvana. Not there yet, but this audiobook is helping. Had already read the original twice and now listening via this audiobook. Allen is a excellent reader and I am enjoying listening.
Great for beginners and as a refresher for GTDers. Continue to get new insights and inspiration.
I love this book. Totally helped me pull all of my different trails of thoughts, ideas, projects, commitments, and "stuff" together into one system. Helps me really look at it all and make good decisions about what I want to be doing. I love that it's an audiobook and I can keep listening to it - each time I do I hear something new. I did find I wanted to to look at a free on-line PDF for some of the illustrations/graphics he references, maybe 3 or 4 in the whole book. So I do think some visuals help support it, but this is a book that works well in audio. Good sound quality. So glad I own it!!!
This book is absolutely amazing!!! The detail is perfect! David explains his systematic approach so completely that you can implement it while listening. THANKS DAVID!!!!
Enjoyed the book, it is a series of tips that are usefull in your daily worklife, most of them a little obvious, but sometimes you need to be reminded of them in order to get organized. Should I recomend it? Yes... would I read again? No.
This book is boring. Plain and simple. Couple of good ideas drowned in a sea of repetition and not-so practical ideas.
There is some solid stuff in here. Really good ideas to cut through the nightmare that is email in todays workplace.
highly recommend. First time i have written a review for anything.
