In today's world, yesterday's methods just don't work. Veteran coach and management consultant David Allen recognizes that time management is useless the minute your schedule is interrupted; setting priorities isn't relevant when your e-mail is down; procrastination solutions won't help if your goals aren't clear. Instead, Allen shares with readers the proven methods he has already introduced in seminars and at top organizations across the country. The key to Getting Things Done' Relaxation. Allen's premise is simple: our ability to be productive is directly proportional to our ability to relax. Only when our minds are clear and our thoughts are organized can we achieve stress-free productivity. His seamless system teaches us how to identify, track, and-most important-choose the next action on all our tasks, commitments, and projects and thus master all the demands on our time while unleashing our creative potential. The book's stylish, dynamic design makes it easy to follow Allen's tips, examples, and inspiration to achieve what we all seek-energy, focus, and relaxed control.

Gee, what took me so long?? I had this book on my 'to read' list for TOO LONG and finally started reading it when I realized it was coming due after three maxed out renewals. This book is worth a read for those who are looking to stop "talking" about getting productive and actually start "performing". I got some really good concepts that I began to immediately apply to my life.

A good read that is straight forward and uncomplicated by expensive equipment or complex ideas. The book helps the individual feel invigorated to organized and stay organized.

While the whole process he teaches seems rather overwhelming, there are great ideas that I could use to make a difference. I particularly found his discussion of ways to implement useful. Worth reading and then reviewing periodically.

First book on organizing that really made sense to me. Listened to the audiobook first, then bought a hardcopy for myself so I can go back to whenever I want.
