Getting Things Done by David Allen

2002 Anointed “the defining self-help business book of the decade,” Dave Allen’s Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity, (shorthanded to “GTD” by millions of acolytes) lays out an elaborate program to tame creeping chaos in five steps: collect, process, organize, review, and do. Allen promises to help you strip your mind and desk of clutter. You’ll need that additional space to store your GTD books, CDs, folders, and accessories.
