    THANK YOU, THANK YOU for this body of work!

    Prior to reading this book, I would have considered my self ¿organized¿. I had a Tablet PC synched with my Pocket PC (after graduating from paper to earlier PDAs, then newer devices), and tried to utlize my task list etc...etc... However, I was so enlightened after the reading. Now I can say, I¿m truly organized and am leading a far better 'quality of life', in achieving my personal and business commitments. It's amazing how this methodoloy helps you get things done! I¿ve setup and updated my IMS over a two and a half week period, after first validating, how much this methodology works with my personal goals and objectives. I¿ve transfered all my business commitments to my IMS, after experiencing the results. In my over six years working for one of the world's leading companies, this was the FIRST my Inbox and several of my mailbox subfolders (and other Collecting Points) were EMPTY! This productivity and workflow methodology works, and I encourage all business leaders involved in information work to read and adopt the methodology articulated in this book.

    I get more hours out of my day!

    This book showed me a new approach towards how I spend my time and then gave me tactical ways to manage through Outlook. We plan to use these methods across our entire organization.

    Great stuff!

    This book really gets to the heart of the issue and the process is very simple. Very easy to understand writing style and great examples! Following this process I now have everything I need to do in one place. Great stuff!

    This book DOES change your life!

    If you are committed to getting organized in your life than this book is a must. The tools laid out by McGhee are practical, easy to implement and powerful. Her work is original, clear and gets to the heart of what holds people back from achieving what they want in life. Before you read any other 'self-help' book, take the time to put to use what McGhee asks of her readers. The title describes what will happen to your life if you read and use this work. There is NO other work out there that has given the 'executive' and the everyday person this kind of power to get what they want out of life.

    GTD for Outlook

    This is a pretty good book for setting up Outlook to manage your life. It borrows a whole lot from David Allen's Getting Things Done methodology. Many of the concepts she covers are David's only she shows how to set Outlook up to capitalize on it. There are also new ideas and places where she builds on David's ideas. Get this book if you like the GTD method but need some help in setting up the practical side of doing it with Outlook. I would recommend anyone buying this also get a copy of David's book if you don't have it already.
