This review is from: Zen To Done: The Ultimate Simple Productivity System (Kindle Edition)
I got heavily into David Allen's GTD a few years ago, and it helped me tremendously. However with a new baby having having arrived this year my to-do list exploded, I was barely conscious somedays from lack of sleep and I became overwhelmed and demotivated by the lists. GTD worked really well for me until life got seriously complicated, at which point I found it pretty depressing to look at my lists - things were going on to them faster than they were coming off. What I really love about Zen to Done is how it has helped me with this. Right now I needed a simpler system to help with the 'Get Stuff Done' and work out which things it would be ok not to do bit rather than the 'Get Stuff Organized' and try to do it all GTD only approach. I'd still very much recommend David Allen's GTD book - the author makes no attempt to disguise that this system is evolved from GTD. I think that this book makes an excellent companion to it, or a stand alone system in its own right. It's not a long book, and in my mind that makes it better value - I feel that the author has made the effort to distil what he wants to say and not waste the readers time with fluff. I appreciated that and got a lot out of it in a short space of time.
