I already knew the author by the podcast.
It is both useful and fun.
It's not only about getting things done, it's also about focus, relationship and so on.
Some of the ideas are identical to other you can find in Tim Ferriss 4-hour book; here though they are somewhat more human, I'd edulcorated and therefore easier to adopt.
I usually don't write reviews unless I feel I've wasted my money. If you're considering this book, listen to his Podcasts first. I DIDN'T do this, and if I had, I likely wouldn't have bought the audiobook. If you like his podcasts, you'll have a better chance of liking the book.
This book offers good ideas that would be beneficial to review. I would definitely listen to it again.
No, it is 6 hours long.
His manner might be a bit bubbly for some, but there are lot's of good ideas here. Conveyed with a clarity and simplicity that make the ideas useful.
Didn't teach much new. That said as a first book on the subject it would be ok
a few organisational tips
GIDG's covers a number of basic personal principles for management of time and organization, but makes them easy to listen and reflect upon Some of the tips might be new - others not. However, these coaching tips are worth revisiting from time to time. Stever Robbins makes them vivid and interesting.
Clutter is my nemesis, so I have a stack of books on organizing (somewhere) about a yard high. I learn, I purge, I splurge and start over. Stever's book is refreshing and real, and is not full of the same old baloney. It is a mix of some classic organizing tips but with a fresh twist, plus many new takes on our current battles with high-tech "time savers."
But I think the main reason I have given this audiobook 5 stars is that this guy is genuinely funny AND full of good information all the more memorable with his quick pace delivery. Total edutainment! I have already put several ideas in use and I seem to winning the battle, for now.
Nothing new in this book. Time tested principles that work, what makes it great to listen is the author has some real good funny one liners . He is a bit of a comic and he makes it very enteraining to listen to
This is clearly the most up to date information on how to manage today's busy life! No matter how much you think you already know, get this book.
Never had so much fun, listening to tips for improving my productivity and focus on the real stuff. Your'e my hero, Stever!
