This book was a great book to listen to - it gave loads of great ways to get yourself organized and info on filing systems and such. This isn't the kind of audio book that you should listen to while on a long drive, etc. as this takes a lot of thought and some writing exercises. I've gained lots of great info to get myself organized - the biggest hurdle is still myself. :)
Can anyone really follow the advice given, with countless folders put in right order?
We live in electronic age. We deal with paper less and less. The author assumes otherwise.
To me, not useful at all.
I agree with David's time and resources management practices! Question: Will we be able to be follow through as this audio books author David suggests, all the time?.... Good to keep trying and remembering David's steps to completing projects... Enjoy being more in control of your valuable time. Will appear more efficient and organized to other associates. (Actions applied from this book can be applied to work and home life - In my opinion).
If you are organized, don't waste your money. On the other hand, I am not and this book helped me a great deal.
