Publisher's Summary

We all struggle with getting things done.

The burden of this fast-paced and busy world only adds weight on our shoulders, and it seems like no matter how many things we do, there is always a new pile of stuff waiting for us to take care of. But while some of us are stuck in the whirlpool of daily obligations, tasks, and endless chores, others struggle with the previous stage - figuring out what it is they need to do.

Regardless of which stage you are in, the single most successful tool for getting things done is the to-do list.

The to-do list is the best time-honored system that offers simple effectiveness. There are four steps to every well-created to-do list:

1.   Figure out the tasks that you need to do and in which order

2.   Write them down

3.   Complete them

4.   Cross them out

And that’s it. After you take advantage of this simple but super powerful tool for getting things done, you will not only have a lot less on your plate, but you will also be relieved from stress and anxiety. Or at least that’s what is expected when creating a to-do list. The reality is sometimes the opposite.

For many people, the to-do list ends up adding more stress and decreasing motivation for completing the tasks written. This mainly happens because people rush their way through the first two steps too quickly, then the third one never comes. 

Failing to organize what actually needs to get done is like making the worst dinner ever. You cannot simply grab everything from your fridge, whisk it together, put it in a pan, and expect a mouthwatering taste. In the same manner don't be fooled into thinking that writing random tasks without any order will result in getting everything done.

If you have a to-do list but haven’t managed to cross anything important out, do not blame your busy schedule - blame your poor to-do list. Using this guide, you will be able to learn how to put your life in order and to maximize your time using to-do-lists.

Cannot seem to pinpoint what’s wrong with your list?

This is the real deal

I have suffered from chronic procrastination for as long as I can remember. In some places it's a bit irreverent in order to realistically get the point across. Well audio with a lot of topics summarized. I bought both the audible version and the book. I can honestly say this book helped me, and my son too.

Very interesting book

This book is so helpful for procrastination. All are easy to understand. I have tried a few books on this subject but most of them felt either very unrealistic or the advice they give is very hard to follow. Thankfully i found this book very different in that it was laid out well, the advice was unique but realistic and the whole book flowed well.

Great ideas for me

Great job on this book. He pointed out details ideas of doing a do list but I was looking for a example of a productive list layout. Would have liked to see actual lists but the advice was overall very good and informative. Thank you for the suggestion listening this.

Very helpful book

Goes over a slew of other "unsuccessful" To Do List methods, and then explains his own method which is sort of a mashup of the best parts of some of the other methods.

Good To Do list primer

I found this book very useful. I've been using to do lists forever it seems like, but I've never actually seen a good "how to" book on making lists. This book has a lot of very good ideas. Highly recommended.

Quick, practical and honest

This is a great book to organize your daily tasks. It got a little wordy to me and I lost interest in some places. I would of like to have seen templates of some lists. All in all a good listen if you are a person like me who tries to do a million things at once and never accomplishes much.

An Excellent Aid for The Procrastinator

This book is an easy listen and makes a lot of sense. If you are willing to put in the time to develop your system. I can see where it would make your life easier and less stressful. If you are willing to do the time, the reasoning behind the system would make you more efficient and possibly even allow you to schedule some leisure time!
