Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free ProductivityI found this book in a very round-about way… one of the people if follow, Michael Hyatt, mentioned using a productivity tool called Nozbe. So, based on his reccomendation – I checked it out. I am still on the Free Trial (truth be told, I have not really had time to fully dive into the tool yet) so I ma not 100% if it is the best tool for me – yet… but it does seem to have lots of promise.

Anyways, as I was looking into the tool further – and watching the videos from the founder/developer of thew tool, he mentioned the book: Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity by David Allen – as the insperation for him wanting to build the online tool & app. *or at least that is what I thought he said 😉

Long story short… that made me what to read the book – and I am glad I did. Getting Things Done, or GTD as it is often referred to, is great. This book offers a fantastic ground work for setting and emplimitenting processes for… wait for it – Getting Things Done.

If you are like me, and you need to Get Things Done. I would highly suggest giving this book a go. You can thank me later.

Publisher’s Summary: In today’s world of exponentially increased communication and responsibility, yesterday’s methods for staying on top just don’t work. Veteran management consultant and trainer 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.
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 and unleash our creative potential. He teaches us how to:

  • Apply the “do it, delegate it, defer it, drop it” rule to get your in-box empty.
    Reassess goals and stay focused in changing situations.
    Overcome feelings of confusion, anxiety, and being overwhelmed.
    Feel fine about what you’re not doing.

From core principles to proven tricks, Getting Things Done has the potential to transform the way you work – and the way you experience work. At any level of implementation, David Allen’s entertaining and thought-provoking advice shows you how to pick up the pace without wearing yourself down.
