August Books 3) Getting Things Done

3) Getting Things Done: How To Achieve Stress-Free Productivity, by David Allen

I rushed out and got this on a sudden whim last week, partly because I was disappointed with the last couple of self-help books I bought, partly because I spent several days last week clearing the decks before I went on holiday, mainly because I’d really like both less stress and more productivity. My self-image is of a laid-back kinda guy who doesn’t work particularly efficiently, and it sometimes comes as a shock to reaclise that some of my colleagues have precisely the opposite impression. It would be nice to bring the two perceptions into closer synchronisation with each other and with reality (whatever that is). Anyway, this was really preparatory reading to help me decide if this is the system I should start trying to implement in my own life. At first glance, it all seems to make sense, so I’ll try it when I get back later in the month, and report back here in due course.

    Looks rather like the work of those rogue Time Lords that used to hang around in the BBC’s VT department…
