There's just too much to do in the 24 hours we get each day and everyone expects the best out of us. To this end, author of Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity, David Allen, argues that "it's possible for a person to have an overwhelming number of things to do and still function productively with a clear head and a positive sense of relaxed control".
His solution? Prioritise your tasks. Not that that is a revolutionary insight but Allen dispenses this advice with practical tips in a straightforward and feasible manner. The book is essentially an organised and logical presentation of time management that is aimed at heightening productivity levels.
Determine what should matter to you, eliminate things that don't, delegate others that someone else should be doing and set reminders for things that should only bother you for later. He introduces a complete step-by-step system that, though takes time to maintain, will save you a lot more time as well as anxiety.
Read Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity if you are clueless about streamlining your life by means of organising it. Allen's comprehensive guide breaks it down to the details on how you may free your mind from distractions and focus on whatever you have to work on without missing much.
