  1. Chad Warner

    This is my go-to productivity book. Since reading it a few years ago, I’ve followed GTD in much of my professional and personal life. I highly recommended it to those who want to regain control of their time and become efficiently productive. It teaches how to be “maximally efficient and relaxed” by avoiding “the so-called urgent and crisis demands of any given workday.” [Review from Goodreads]

    This is a good system for dealing with all the minutiae that make up all that we need to do just to manage our careers and lives. As for the book, it was a bit dated. His systems were very paper centric… this guy still loves his paper folders and label makers. [Review extracted from Goodreads]

  3. Josh

    The essence of Allen’s strategy is this: Develop a method for capturing everything you have to do in your life on an ongoing basis, periodically break it all down into actionable steps, arrange those actions in order, and then go to town on them… It was a transformative experience to sit down with all the clutter in my life and break it down into next actions… For the first time I can remember, the miscellaneous open loops in my life are not tugging at my attention. I’ve closed the ones I can close, and I’m okay with the ones I haven’t closed yet. I’ll get to them when it’s time. [Review extracted from Goodreads]
