11th March – Finished the Getting Things Done Book

Getting Things DoneWell, after a couple of months of fragmented reading, I have just finished reading the Getting Things Done book by David Allen. This was the whole purpose of this blog so I gave it a good push towards then end in order to get it done before my 34th birthday! (which is tomorrow).

Fantastic book, cannot wait to get started. Reading he book has opened my eyes to the massive amount of open loops that I have in my life right now. These vary from business to family, and personal items.

I have really read the book well, and made a lot of notes that I am going to go back over and write about in this blog.

Now, I am just creating my shopping list and I will be visiting my local office supplies store over the next few days. I plan to allocate two days to the “collecting” phase at the back end of this week.

Exciting times ahead, and I cannot wait to share my findings. Just got one quote from the final chapters of the book that I would like to leave you with.

The secret of getting ahead is getting started,

The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks ,

and then starting on the first one.

Mark Twain

Well, it is my time to get started….
