Damon Zahariades is a prolific author of short books that are designed to make us more productive, better people. He is also quite fond of exclamation marks and numbered lists (he has a 30-day productivity plan and 21 proven tactics to ‘cure’ one of procrastination). This book too is full of lists of the 3 kinds of this, and the 8 varieties of that. Sadly, it’s all been done before and better (David Allen’s Getting Things Done is a much better and more original work). Still, I am trying out one or two of his ideas, so it wasn’t a complete waste of time — and did I mention that the books he writes are very short?
