This book should have been my first recommendation on this platform. It is probably the most influential book I’ve read so far. It is the only book I re-read every year and this since 2012 when I first bought it. The author David Allen has created a masterpiece when it comes to Life Management. It supposed to be time and task management, but it is so much more. His methodology describes the simplest and most effective way to manage any stressful day or job. It changed my life. If you struggle with getting things done or you think there is not enough time in the day, take out a few more hours and read this book. I would say that it will take you about the same time to clean up your days as it will take you to read this book
From the book:
Since it was first published almost fifteen years ago, David Allen’s Getting Things Done has become one of the most influential business books of its era, and the ultimate book on personal organisation. ‘GTD’ is now shorthand for an entire way of approaching professional and personal tasks, and has spawned an entire culture of websites, organisational tools, seminars, and offshoots.
Allen has rewritten the book from start to finish, tweaking his classic text with important perspectives on the new workplace, and adding material that will make the book fresh and relevant for years to come. This new edition of Getting Things Done will be welcomed not only by its hundreds of thousands of existing fans but also by a whole new generation eager to adopt its proven principles.
By David Allen, published 2015 (updated version)
