Definitely a classic in the productivity field for a reason, but the version I read hasn't been updated in a loooong time and it shows. I think a lot of the tips Allen offers in this book are timeless, but many of the sections dealing with paper (I think I have one 'paper' think I need to file per month if that) and contexts (at your computer, etc.) seem out of date in a world where I can have my email, a phone, the internet, etc. at the tip of my fingers at all times. That said, I still found the portions dealing with the next action item valuable enough to give four stars. ( )

While the a lot of advice of this book probably can be applied to any lifestyle, I'd be interested to know if David Allen has done any work with underprivileged clients. All the examples in the book are executives. It would be nice to read stories of the system working for someone that doesn't have an ivy league education or a high paying corporate job. I would probably have rated this higher if there was at least one example of this system helping someone get out of a minimum wage job or out of a paycheck to paycheck lifestyle. ( )

My boss is so much a fan of this book that she gave it to me free this month. She reads it every year in pursuit of further mastery of her work and life. Although the obvious application is to the realm of employment, Allen’s approach is applicable to one’s personal/private life and even to stay-at-home parents. It’s about keeping the “projects” in one’s life moving forward without causing stress.

Allen’s system runs off on moving things onto whatever is next. He suggests that one keep an external set of notes about each project so that one can quickly be reminded of the next action to take. In this updated edition, he cites research findings of cognitive science to bolster his case that the mind functions poorly at memory. Remembering is what the external notes are for. The brain, then, can focus on organizing and creatively adapting for the future.

He also addresses organizational systems to process thoughts. He suggests having one big “In box” and processing whatever comes in each day according to a set scheme. Quick (requiring less than two-minutes) tasks should be handled immediately while other tasks can be planned. This system might seem overwhelming at first, but having a boss who uses it, I can attest that it enhances productivity immensely.

I do not and will not follow this book’s recommendations in every jot-and-tittle. Instead, I seek to apply its deeper organizing principles to my work and life. For example, I do not plan to make a physical inbox; instead, I have implemented something similar in a list of several post-it notes that I round on daily. The post-it notes keep track of all incoming information, and I cross off items as I organize them into my system. This looser approach of building a personal system allows me not to feel that Allen’s approach would take over my life. Nonetheless, my approach is fundamentally compatible with Allen’s.

Again, this book has obvious implications for those in the world of work. However, it has broader reach into the world of anyone dealing with knowledge. It simply enhances the skill of organization to the individual, whether that be a student, a stay-at-home mom, a teacher, or a researcher. Be forewarned that this book skims on the motivational and inspirational stories in favor of the nuts-and-bolts of how to implement the system. It can be intense at times, but one need not implement the entire system at once in order to see significant benefits. I, for one, am looking forward to seeing the results in my daily labor. ( )

I thought this book had a lot of ideas to offer. I actually couldn't put it down--that is, I couldn't put it down until he got through the "how to implement" part of the book...the rest I skimmed. I think the book could have been shortened and more straight-forward and it would have been more effective, but maybe that's just the tech writer in me.

My gripe would be that most/all? of the implementation of these guidelines are paper based and I found myself cringing at the thought of "wasting" all that paper and folders...but I am kind of a hippie. I would love it if he would put out a SmartPhone app that I could use instead of his paper system.

All in all, it's worth a read if you're looking for ways to get on top of all those little things running around in your head... Now I just have to implement his ideas. ( )

I didn't get this done. HA! I kill me.

(I probably shouldn't write reviews after midnight....) ( )

It is simply the best personal productivity book I’ve ever read, and there’s material in this book that can apply to anyone’s life, whether you’re a manager or a writer or a professional or a stay-at-home parent.
