A great review of a great book.
Getting Things Done or GTD in short is one of the most productive book on productivity I have read. David Allen has systematically analysed all the various failure and success in his productivity journey and distilled it into a set of rules many of which are counter intuitive and unusual. Having read through the book I am convinced on the importance of getting all stuff off my mind into some tested and effective system so that we could break them down into smaller and smaller components, until we get to the next action that is required to be taken.
Very practical and doable in every way, thanks to it, I have embarked on the GTD journey and am loving the efficiency it is bringing me. It is also effective in reducing the stress related to the slipping away of time.
So many software have evolved around this concept and I am in the process of testing a large number to see what works. I have realized that you need to have a physical notebook backup of any computer or smartphone based system.
