Title: Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity

Author: David Allen

Reason to Read:

The 2015 edition of Getting Things Done provides a fresh look on Allen’s strategies and tactics you can use in your Internet business and personal life to boost productivity while relieving stress in the process. Because his methods are independent of any particular technology, they will not become obsolete.

Note that this is a substantially revised version of the book, i.e. Allen re-wrote most of it. The 2015 edition is not just minor editing and repackaging of the classic GTD first edition.

Key Quote:

“It’s a waste of time and energy to keep thinking about something you make no progress on. And it only adds to your anxiety about what you should be doing and aren’t.”

Have you done this to save time yet?

What can you automate to save time in your business?

As an Internet lawyer, I believe that tech should be used to save irreplaceable time. In fact, I’m such a business believer in time management that I even wrote the book “Time Management for Lawyers” and teach continuing legal education (CLE) on the topic.

Because your time is limited, it makes sense to automate many parts of your online business when it benefits both you and your prospects and clients.

For example, last year, I switched to an online booking system for telephone appointments.

This has saved hundreds of hours while letting prospective clients pick the dates/times they want.

More time was saved this year by setting up an automated system for providing fee estimates (it’s on the right-hand side of the page at https://MikeYoungLaw.com).

What can you automate in your business to save time? Equally important, what will you do with the time you save?
