Getting things done by David AllenSummary

Featured in Fortune, and labelled by Fast Company as “the guru of personal productivity”, David Allen has over 20 years’ experience as a management consultant, productivity coach and educator. In his book,Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity, Allen shares with readers the proven productivity strategies that he has developed consulting at such top organisations as New York Life, the World Bank, Microsoft, the Ford Foundation and the US Navy.

Part I of Getting Things Done describes Allen’s whole system, Part II coaches you through implementing the system, and Part III explores the subtler and more profound benefits you will experience when you incorporate these core principles into your work and your life.

Allen’s programme is instantly accessible and requires no new skills at all – just a new way of approaching things that enter the threshold of your work and life. As Allen says: “You need to do something about what you are thinking and you need to think about the things that you are doing.”
