Discover David Allen's powerful methods for stress free performance at work and in life - now completely updated.
David Allen's Getting Things Done was hailed as 'the definitive business self help book of the decade' (TIME) when it was first published 15 years ago and 'GTD' has since become shorthand for an entire culture of personal organisation that offers to change the way people work and live.
Now, the veteran coach and management consultant has rewritten the book from start to finish, tweaking his classic text with new perspectives on todays workplace, and incorporating new data that validates his timeless admonition that 'your head is for having ideas - not for holding them!'
Allen's premise is simple, our productivity is directly proportional to our ability to relax. Only when our minds are clear, and our thoughts are organised can we achieve effective results and unleash our creative potential. From core principles to proven tricks, Getting this Done will teach you to:
- Apply the 'do it, drop it, defer it, delegate it' rule to get your inbox empty.
- Re-assess goals and stay focussed in changing situations
- Plan and unstick projects
- Overcome feelings of confusion, anxiety and being overwhelmed
- Feel fine about what you are not doing
Getting Things Done describes an incredibly practical process that can help busy people regain control of their lives. It can help you be more successful. Even more important, it can help you have a happier life! Marshall Goldsmith.
Getting Things Done offers help building the new mental skills needed in an age of multitasking and overload. Sue Shellenbarger
