Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Dominic Wolff is an author, business owner and traveller (or as he likes to call it, a globe trotter). A native from Idaho, Dominic became interested in the mechanics of business from a very young age. From those early days of selling candy bars to running a multi-state company today, Dominic has always been on the lookout for systems that would improve his productivity and allow him more free time to enjoy his hobbies. He frequently writes articles about personal productivity for business publications. He believes that having a structure in place for work and life can mean the difference between being in control and merely coping. An avid collector of fine red wines, he also owns a small wine boutique stocking only the finest of Washington, Oregon and Idaho wines. During his travels to far and wonderful places he also searches for the absolute best Zinfandel that can rival those of California. He lives in Wyoming with his wife Sarah, two German Shepherds and a tiny vineyard of his own.

A great read for students and professionals who want to get organized.
I can recommend it.
4 Sterne deshalb, weil manche verwendete Tags nicht erklärt werden und GTD etwas freier (wenn auch sehr gut) interpretieren - da muss man erst einmal dahinterkommen.

I recommend reading this book as well as Mr Golds book as well as the Evernote user guide from David Allen company and finally The Secret Weapon web site. The alternative is to use an App already designed to use with GTD. However, using Evernote gives you 1) the ability to tweak it exactly the way you want it 2) one place to hold everything and not have to go back and refer to your e-msils in Outlook/GMail, etc 3) the same area where your reference material is stored.
Between these short reads you can set up Evernote to be a one stop shop for you as well!
I can hardly believe how much things changed since I started working, a mere fifteen years ago. I got my diploma, I knew a lot of things about my work, and I was willing to learn more, so I thought that once hired I would be safe. But a few years later the economy crashed and all of a sudden that safety net was lifted. People started getting fired, and if I didn't have to follow them I had to adapt, which meant that I had to work harder, for longer hours and doing different things.
At first, even though worried, I saw it as a challenge. I had to prove to myself and to my superiors that I deserved my place there. As time went by though, things started getting complicated. My long hours became even longer and no matter how much I tried I couldn't keep up with my work flow. And I could see that some of the managers were not quite happy with me. But what was I supposed to do? I was working just as hard as everybody else or even harder, but time was not just enough, while my energy levels had started plummeting as well. I was heading towards depression when a friend told me to do the obvious; to seek some help.
In Getting Things Done with Evernote I found exactly what I was looking for; what I was missing. This guide showed me the way to find my footing once again in our ever-changing world. The author says in the intro: "I was looking for a way to make my life easier. Even though I had moments when I felt highly productive, the vast majority of time I felt like I was spinning my wheels." Well, that's exactly how I felt before I set eyes on this book; I don't anymore.
Going through these pages was like a journey of discovery for me, as while reading it I felt like I was learning how to get things done all over again, without missing a step. The book made me believe that Evernote could change things for the better, and once I've decided to follow its advice, it definitely delivered on that promise. Soon enough I had all my work flow under control and the dark clouds that have only recently started gathering over my head dissipated into the ether; a safety net was cast over me once more.
I always thought I could fill my days with many different things but I've never actually managed to do so for one reason or another. Who was to blame of that? Myself of course. Who did I blame? The lack of time, the other people, my low levels of energy or, half-jokingly, the stars.
Well, it seems that now technology has come to make a liar, and a believer out of me. As the title suggests this book is all about Getting Things Done, and, to my surprise, it seems that the proposed system works for everyone. Now the question that arises is: Do I really want to get things done? The truth is that I always wanted to, but finding excuses not to was what I did best.
According to the author it's not that difficult to achieve your goals. All you have to do is simply use some common sense, change your old habits and adopt effective new behaviors. To put it in a few words, you have to change your attitude. I have to admit that I wasn't too eager to try and do that, but once I've started reading this book I've changed my mind. The author's arguments are compelling and once I've started following his advice everything changed for the best. Now I'm more productive than I ever was before in life.
Really good book. Get it!
