The Bible of Productivity
You know those books you seem to pick up at the absolute perfect time in your life? That’s how I feel currently about Getting Things Done by David Allen.
This is more of a way of life–a proper system–than it is a book. I’m only three chapters in, and it has changed my life.
The idea of genuinely getting things done is not to get more things done per se; it is to have a stress-free relationship with the things you need or want to accomplish.
“THE KEY INGREDIENTS of relaxed control are (1) clearly defined outcomes (projects) and the next actions required to move them toward closure, and (2) reminders placed in a trusted system that is reviewed regularly.”
