Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity
Author: David Allen
I listened to the Audible audio book back in December 2009 and David Allen's simple yet effective methodology for collecting, organising, and doing tasks. I got into the GTD methodology after listening to Katie Floyd and David Sparks of the Mac Power Users podcast talk about it as well as the time when they interviewed Merlin Mann for one of their Workflows episodes. Since then I have fastidiously kept to the process, using Things to capture my tasks and a folder management scheme for both my work and home e-mail. The GTD methodology also reaches into every corner of the office workflow including organising file folders!
