I got lucky and saw this as a free purchase on amazon and grabbed it. I'm an advocate of the GTD process and thought if I could gain even one take away from this then the more the better. I actually took away quite a few ideas and was pleasantly surprised. The authors ideas seem very similar to the GTD process so it didnt contradict anything I currently follow, but some of the methods such as taking 30 minutes prior to your day to organize and plan all of your buckets has helped me a lot in mentally preparing for the onslaught of tasks that I face on a regular basis. Compared to doing the weekly mind sweep found in GTD, this just helps keep the focus and has energized the determination to take my day on. Now the book is short and does come up a little dry and I would have given this a 3 star rating, but he included at the end 101 ideas that he has gathered from other sources and himself and this addition gave me a couple of more nice ideas. So over all for the contribution of overall poroductivity ideas, this is a great addition to anyones time management library.

A short tunnel goes underground into a large chamber with moss on the floor and walls. Queens have their kits here, and the kits will spend most of their time here until they are apps. YOU HAD BETTER POST!

My name is Sonny and I've made many mistakes. I put salt in a mixed drink instead of sugar. I let a bookshelf fall on me and rupture my internal organs. But, the worst mistake I have ever made is buying a book. Never buy books, especially NOOK books. They corrupt us by giving us bad ideas and making us lazy. They are worse than TV and video games. Don't get free samples and/or free books. No book is worth your $0 or more. Books are bad. DO NOT EVER EVER EVER BUY BOOKS!!!!!!
