A useful mish-mash,
This review is from: Get Things Done: What Stops Smart People Achieving More and How You Can Change (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Rather like Kelsey's other book in this series 'What's Stopping You', this reads as partly a personal journey, with the author going out of his way to show that whatever faults and failings we, the reader might have, he has or has had them too. Then it's down to the more serious business of, effectively, summarising best practise in terms of managing time, people, resources, distractions and so forth. Summarising others' ideas always feels a bit less convincing at one remove and Kelsey does a useful service here, but saying things like 'using a decision tree may help' isn't perhaps quite as powerful and convincing as 'Here's this great tool. Try it. Now!'. Still, I enjoyed the read and it's good to think about one's own self-sabotaging tactics and some potential solutions.
