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.

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.
