Are you finding it difficult to focus these days? Is your productivity down? Maybe it’s time to try a new approach.
The Getting Things Done® methodology that has shown millions how to transform a fast-paced, overwhelming, overcommitted life into one that is balanced, integrated, relaxed, and has more successful outcomes. GTD’s broad appeal is based on the fact that it is applicable from the boardroom to the living room to the class room. It is hailed as “life changing” by students, busy parents, entrepreneurs and corporate executives.
GTD, according to Allen, is really about creating mental space. “You can’t manage time,” he says. “Time just is. That’s not the big issue. The big issue is really space. When people say they need time management, it’s usually because something is feeling out of control or inappropriately focused.”
Note: There are two editions; feel free to read either one.
