Making It All Work

Making It All Work

David Allen

Overview

If you're like most people, an email pops up and you read it immediately. Next thing you know, you're deep in the mire of distractedness. You wonder how you got there, but more than that, what all this busy work is for anyway. After all, isn't it hard to tell if an email is important unless you open it?

The trouble is, with so much information and opportunities coming at us at increasing speeds, it's hard to tell what's meaningful and what isn't. Although this is frustrating, you don't need to worry that you're the only one that feels this way.

Many of us struggle to see the forest through the trees. But there is hope. Making it All Work: Winning at the Game of Work and the Business of Life is David Allen's follow up to Getting Things Done, and will help you get clarity and purpose in daily tasks and your overall goals.

"It's the nature of human experience, which is always in some form of motion, to veer off course, sometimes in major, but consistently in minor, ways"
