Review:

This book will change your life. If you are a do-er, you need this. “Getting Things Done” (GTD) by David Allen is not a book, it is a movement. The GTD movement is strong among leaders in a diverse ray of fields. Did I mention this book will change your life… You will learn from this book how to develop a system for managing everything on your plate and maintaining a state of clear-headed presence in whatever you choose to do. Your system will keep you out of overwhelm and when you fall off the GTD wagon which you will there is a structure to get you back on. This is the future, learn, and teach your children, it will change your life.

Key Points:

  • Your head is a terrible office, it is for having ideas not holding them.
  • If your list system is an incomplete list of unclear things it will overwhelm you and you will resist it.
  • You will get into overwhelm the key is to know how to get out of overwhelm.

Challenges:

  • Don’t read the whole thing before you get started, take it and run with it, its long, read and do!
