Getting Things Done

"Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress Free Productivity" is a book by David Allen which outlines a philosophy for processing work.

My quickest description is that it describes creating a place where all incoming work is waiting and processing through it in the fastest and most effective way.

The real genius behind GTD is that it really eliminates the stress that most people associate with organizing themselves.

I think reading the book is essential to get the zeitgeist of the system but the book does not describe the specific system you should be implementing for your particular work. Especially because the book is a bit dated and doesn't describe how to take advantage of today's technology. Don't worry, though. I'll be trying to help with that through this blog.
