The Billfold Book Club: We’re Reading ‘Getting Things Done’ on Thursday, August 28

David AllenThis month, I learned that if you put a joke entry on the Billfold Book Club list, it will get the most votes.

We are reading David Allen’s Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity for the August installment of the Billfold Book Club!

The book itself isn’t a joke; as you know, I’ve been practicing GTD for about six years. It’s just that Getting Things Done isn’t about money. Which is fine because it is about productivity and hustle and work-life balance and organizing your time so you actually enjoy your life.

It is probably also about planning ahead so you don’t spend extra money on takeout or something. We can absolutely make it about that.

We’ll be reading Getting Things Done on Thursday, August 28.

I’ve been on the hold list for this ebook at my library since you wrote about it a week or two ago, but I think it will not be available for me before then since I was 6th on the list (a first, in my experience with my local library – the furthest down the hold list I’ve ever been is 2nd). But perhaps I can find a physical copy – need to hit up the library soon anyway.

Looking forward to reading it!

I just got the ebook of this for myself! I’d decided to read it because of that earlier post from someone on here who uses GTD that seemed really cool. Now, I just have to buckle down and read the damned thing.
