Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity

Just finished my first read of this book, (it really needs reading twice), and found it pretty good.  Unfortunately it also left me being very frustrated because the methodology proposed is so well supported by the outlook Add-in, and I have to use Lotus Notes.  There is a template for Notes, but so far as I can figure it only seems to be available through coaching sessions.

There are some very good blogs on how to refine the methodolgy:

and of course Dave’s blog

One of the key concepts in the book is, “A mind like water”, ie emptying the mind so that it can focus on what needs to be done.  The concept is sometimes misunderstood and there is a great post here that explains it very well.
