BOOK REVIEW - “Review of Getting Things Done ” by David Allen

Getting Things Done (also known as the GTD system) is a task management methodology. Before anyone of you dismiss this book as boring hear this: GTD changed my life about seven years ago when I read David Allen’s book and implemented his system. If you are a geeky isolated person like me and want to have more time to do the things you enjoy–and be able to enjoy them even more because you know you aren’t dropping the ball somewhere else–then indeed this book is meant for you.

Let me draw some light about what the GTD system is and what it could potentially do for you. After all, you aren’t visiting GeekDad to brush up on your task management skills; you are here because you share our passion for all things. Being a nerd is all about being able to spend time over things that truly matters to you. You can only manage to spend time doing this once your professional and personal commitments are met, and it is always easier said than done.

This book gives you an art of stress-free life It helps in getting control and management in your commitments and responsibilities under control. It helps you in being more focused

“Mind like water” is a phrase that David Allen uses often in this book. It means being able to have nothing on your mind except the present. It doesn’t mean you aren’t extremely busy, but it does mean that you no longer stressing out about “that thing.

Don’t stress over the tools and how to get started, just read the book and follow David Allen’s instructions, and in no time you too can be focusing on really important things. In order to know the tricks and bring them into practice grab a copy and unfold the magic.

Now my Positive viewpoints:

The entire book is about positivity and positive attitude towards life.

Some suggestive points:

Although the description of the book is wonderful but at some places it becomes stagnant. If the author has added up some life examples, it would have increased the interest of reader to great extend.

Final words:

  Overall if asked I would say this is a great book in order to change the positive attitude towards life. I would give it 4 stars.
