I think the Next Action Lists, Projects list and 'someday/maybe' lists are good for keeping an overview and for a weekly review of progress and what needs to be done, but I still find I am more productive if I synthesise my priorities from those lists on to a 'stuff to do this week' list and a 'quick jobs this week' list, which mostly get done. I'll keep at it though; it has taken me a life time to get in to bad habits so it will take a bit to get me into better ones :-)
David Allen offers you his way of working smart and tells you how it has benefited him, and how it can benefit you.
You are left with the choice to adopt this way of living and working and he tells you what you can expect by organising your work like such.
What I got out of it is that his method is one for leaving your mind undisputed by things you have coming up by immediately having a place for all your new ideas. This leaves you with a fresh mind and a sense that everything is taken care of because you know where all your to dos and ideas are, physically.
A great read if nothing else
The central premise of the book is simple enough: if it takes less than a couple of minutes, get it done now. If you can't, or it takes longer than that, then add it to the list and carry on with else is there.
So, is it hyperbolic to call Allen the Mendeleev of task management? Maybe.
But I wouldn't know. I've not finished the book yet. I'm too busy getting everything else done now.
