If you know me you know that I religiously follow Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress from Productivity. Next to the Bible, GTD has been one of the most life-changing books I’ve sought to live out. When I received the sequel to GTD, Making It All Work, I was thrilled. The book begins with some basic GTD principles, then it supposedly moves on to more advanced stuff. I know a bunch of people like Making It All Work, but the book didn’t do much for me. It was similar to sitting through a bad movie because you paid for it. After several chapters I felt that David Allen was simply drawing from the monstrous selection of GTD blogs and repackaging it for his book. My advice—read the original GTD book and do everything it says. Get involved in the online GTD community and get tips from other GTD members. That is what will make your all productivity work.
