Basically, Zen to Done is a simplified version of David Allen’s excellent Getting Things Done with a few other useful elements from other productivity schemes tossed in. It actually turned out to be very similar to the way I handle the tasks I need to do each day, which made it seem all the more approachable for me. I found several little tweaks that fit perfectly into what I already did.
If you have difficulty managing your time and you’ve tried Getting Things Done and found it too big to swallow all at once, Zen to Done is probably perfect for you. It’s very simple with applicable pieces for any life.
The only real catch with Zen to Done is that you can’t check it out at your local library - it’s only available as a downloadable e-book. For some, that will be prohibitive, and I don’t blame you - I like the feel of a book and I also prefer to browse a book at the library to check it out. But it is pretty cheap, and you’re allowed to make as many copies as you want, so if you download it once, you can email it to all of your friends to share it.
