This is a revised edition of the world's most famous book on personal effectiveness, first published in 2001 and translated into 30 languages. This publication removes all incomplete or outdated information. Now the book is relevant for the new time and for the modern mobile world. The recommendations from David Allen will be useful to both those who first heard about this methodology, and devoted fans of the GTD technique (Getting Things Done), who read the first edition and want to keep abreast of all the changes. Getting Things Done is not just about putting things in order. This is about how to competently cope with work and personal life. This technique is the result of twenty years of work by the author. Among Russian managers, it became megapopular even before the book was translated into Russian in 2007. In the book you will find everything about how much and well to work and get pleasure from it: how to collect and process information, instantly choose the right action, plan and control the work, separate the main thing from the secondary, keeping the mind clear, and thoughts ordered.
