Great book
October 27th, 2013
I am inspired by the system and am quickly seeing positive changes in my life. My advice for anyone daunted by applying this system. Create a project called Implement GTD and then pick your next action, such as "setup workspace." As for the book itself I think David spends way to much time telling you how awesome his system is. David, I bought the book and I want to learn your system. You don't need to convince me anymore, teach me. The book should be in three parts, the introduction with all the selling of the system, the actual system and then a section with the additional selling he does at the end. Also pull all the anecdotes about successful implementation out of the main text. Or just create a new book with just the core. The GTD reference guide.
