Getting Things Done without losing your cool.
Built on simple concepts such as outcome thinking and defining your next actions, the Getting Things Done (GTD) method can be used to plan projects of all shapes and sizes. Whether you’re organizing a work presentation or buying Christmas presents for everyone in your family, the GTD philosophy forces you to start by identifying a clear goal and then continuously asking yourself: What’s the next concrete action I can take to come closer to achieving my goal?
Therein lies the true art of getting things done: by keeping every task small enough that you can take care of it in a short period of time, a lack of time or motivation won’t be able to hinder you from doing what you need to do. And, step by step, this approach will help you work toward achieving all your goals in life and avoid stress along the way.
When you organize your projects using the GTD method, you’ll always be prepared to work on tasks at short notice, regardless of what else is going on or where you are. GTD makes it so easy for you to take the next step that you won’t postpone it.
This book presents a few simple tools you can use to work effectively and keep a cool head at the same time, and talks about what kind of attitude is necessary for putting the GTD philosophy into practice.
