Getting Things Done


"Your mind is for having ideas, not holding them."


This book is a step-by-step guide for stress-free productivity. The core idea is that you need to have a system that allows you to free your mind from having to remember tasks and to-dos and instead, let it focus on getting things done.


KEY TAKEAWAYS:

1) Realize and accept the fact that your brain is not designed to hold lots of tasks and To-Dos. It is best to use lists and calendars for that.

2) Becoming high-performing requires you to capture what has your attention, clarify what it means, put it where it belongs, review it frequently, and execute on it.

3) When you feel overwhelmed, it could be either because you are unclear on what your next action is or what your intended outcome is.
