    1 thought on “Zen to Done

    1. Zen To Done is helpful in making one productive and better results can be drawn from it than Getting Things Done or To Do Lists.The methods in it focuses one job at a time and then moving to next habit once the previous one is completed.I'm glad that I to have read such ebook.

    2. I would only recommend this to a person who has NEVER read a blog post or a book on how to be productive. Otherwise, you pretty much know all the stuff here. It emphasizes the simplification of your productivity system.Since I have loads of tasks to do that have deadlines (from school), I have no problem being organized. I use the iPhone app iStudiez Pro for scheduling all school work/exams/courses/lecturesc. That's it. No calendars, no notepads, nothing. But whenever the weekend comes and I nee [...]

    3. This is a handy little e-book. I read it because I had read an interview with David Allen (author of Getting Things Done) and that interviewer suggested that Zen To Done was the minimal one had to read to get started on GTD. I ended up reading Zen to Done kind of in parallel with GTD and it helped me to understand the concepts. In GTD the approach is to just jump right in, take a couple of days, collect everything, process it, and from that point on continue with the GTD method. Zen To Done is a [...]

    4. I have been trying to figure out my own GTD system, but I couldn't, simply because it's just too complex. Zen to Done on the other hand immediately gave me a sight of hope - it's OK not to implement everything and at once. The biggest take away was to schedule 3 (at most) Most Important Tasks for the first part of the day, get them done and then I can freestyle from there. Honestly, it was a big relief to experience this. For me, this is stress free productivity. Highly recommended to anyone who [...]

    5. I really liked this little ebook. I had been a GTD user for a while, but felt caught up in the minutia and unable to focus on the big picture. When I had a little free time I'd think, "I have to knock some tasks off those long lists!!" Over time I realized GTD wasn't good for me. It was filling up all my free time with work and I wasn't working towards anything particularly important. ZTD is an adaption that works for me. It's about streamlining and simplifying: allowing you to figure out your b [...]

    6. A little book of common sense. If you're an unproductive person and can't figure out why, this may offer the kick start you need to do what you don't realise you're already capable of doing.It's suggestion to keep a diary, and record every new task that comes to mind in the diary so that you don't clutter your mind with things to remember (that you inevitably forget), has lightened the weight off my shoulders. Reviewing the diary each morning and evening prevents procrastination. Reducing your y [...]

    7. Zen to Done is Babauta's bizarrely simple take on David Allen's Getting Things Done and Steven Covey's 7 Habits. I read this book when looking to simplify my GTD system, and this has definitely helped. The concept of Big Rocks, Most Important Tasks, and Simplifying have helped me become more productive.This review is evidence of that. I highly recommend this book. And because it is uncopyrighted, I will gladly share my copy of it.

    8. Another in a long list of productivity books I've read. This one, like all the others, basically says 3 things: write your shit down, organize your shit, do your shit.

    9. Zen to done es un libro muy práctico y conciso sobre organización personal. Se inspiró en otras técnicas como "Eat that frog" de Bryan Tracy o "Get things done" de David Allen pero principalmente, "Los 7 hábitos de la gente altamente productiva" de Stephen Covey pero digerido y simplificado. Y por si fuera poco, ofrece una versión aún más simple, minimalista, de su propio método, que consiste en desarrollar 4 hábitos: 1- recopilar ideas, 2-procesar y no acumular, 3-Planificar, usar una [...]

    10. ZTD captures the essential spirit of the new system: that of simplicity, of a focus on doing, in the here and now, instead of on planning and on the system.

    11. Každý človek sa zrejme raz dostane do situácie, kedy sa doslova zasekne v práci. Priveľa e-mailov, zápisov a úloh z porád, neutíchajúce telefonické, či ústne požiadavky. Hromady nevybavených papierov na stole. Tisíc rozrobených úloh, žiadna dokončená. A takto sa to opakuje ako v zlom hororovom kolotoči každé ráno. Existuje množstvo nástrojov, ktoré pomáhajú zvýšiť produktivitu, množstvo dlhosiahlych návodov. Do toho nezmyselného chaosu prichádza Leo Babauta [...]

    12. For those who haven't ever read any books or blogs about self-organization, self-improvement, etc, this might provide a few pointers. For others, there is nothing new here and the writing style is a bit tedious. Now I understand those who said bullet lists don't belong in a book. It's like the book was written by a list freak.The most helpful for me was chapter 11, and it can be summarized thusly: "Set a yearly goal and some short-term goals, set aside a short amount of time every week to review [...]

    13. Jednoduché, poučné a pro mě ze všech motivačních knih i nejvíc reálné. Asi první kniha tohoto žánru, která mě zaujala natolik, abych si některé rady nejen vzala k srdci, ale i je zavedla do každodenního procesu.

    14. Less compelling than 7 Habits; less overwhelming than GTD. This little book is a calming reminder that time and task managementdon't have to be stressful.

    15. Quotations from other books (mostly Getting things done) - and nothing original.All the book is the author arguing with Mr Allen´s ideas and pointing out how he is betterd all of the sudden there is the end of the book and we learned almost nothing new.(in one of the last chapters he explains us why he is convinced that he didn´t steal the rights of Mr Allen´s and his GTD method)Obsahuje citáty ze "Sedm návyků skutečně efektivních lidí" a z metody GTD (Allen: "Mít vše hotovo").Dále [...]

    16. I'm so glad I finally picked up this book again and finished it. What added to my understanding was not perusing the Zen Habits blog but hearing interviews with Leo Babauta. Zen I am not but the way is clearer. The processes outlined clearly in the book are nowhere near new though his suggestions for implementing them one at at time and his concentration on habits versus goals and simplifying is new (to me). These principles will also take some as much reflection as action. This isn't a book to [...]

    17. I really enjoyed this book. I am a utilizer of GTD (Getting Things Done) and yet this book ZTD (Zen to Done) incorporates the best of GTD and Franklin Covey's system of Seven Effective Habits. Even though I am a bigger fan of GTD there are definitely insights that can be gained by Franklin Covey. Babauta helps look at a very practical way of putting these principles into place. I recommend this book thoroughly for those who want practical ways to put GTD into place.

    18. There are two main things about this book: just try one new habit, and stick to it unit it really become a habit (the author suggests one month practicing each new habit). And the habits itself, there are a list of ten new habits.For sure those two components really made me more confident than another productivity tools that I had seen.

    19. Good starting point for complete beginners - but if you've been working on your productivity for a whileyou are probably doing all this and more. I agree thought it's much simpler and efficient that David Allen's Getting things done

    20. Buena guiaAunque llevo un tiempo con GTD no me termina de cerrar, leyendo este libro y considerando sus diferencias con el anterior veo que se adapta mejor a mi.El libro en sí es de fácil y rápida lectura, pero su implementación requiere algo más de tiempo.

    21. A perfect complement to David Allen's Getting Things Done. Definitely picked up some pointers for improving my GTD habits/system.

    22. Může to být zajímavé a pro lidi i docela napomocne, ale já to zřejmě slyšela v době, kdy to vlastně nepotřebuju :)

    23. A great minimalist approach to Getting Things Done which will help to get things done. By creating small sustainable changes and focusing on results, good stuff

    24. Short book with very good ideas about productivity, but most of them I already know and use. I would recommend it to everyone who is completely disorganised.

    25. You don't so much read this book as practice it. Laid out herein is a simple productivity system that draws very heavily on David Allen's classic productivity bible Getting Things Done (GTD). It's a condensation of the key methods and I find that to be rather apt, but the emphasis, quite rightly, is on habit formation. The book is a very lean (67 or so pages), but that too is very appropriate: people who want to get things done don't like the idea of spending several hours reading a book full of [...]

    26. ★★★✩✩ (3/5) Mi è piaciuto, ma c'è di meglio Cosa mi è piaciuto(+) le basi ci sono, ed è tutto molto semplice (+) al contrario di GTD di David Allen, questo libro è scritto in maniera chiara e scorrevole (+) non ci sono allungamenti di brodo, ogni pagina è semplice e concisa Cosa non mi è piaciuto(-) tutto il metodo si può riassumere in: scriviti quello che vuoi fare, organizzalo, fai le cose più importanti per prime nella giornata (-) leggendo la giornata tipo (una delle ultim [...]

    27. Great way to get a high level understanding of Minimalism in all aspects of your life. I can see referencing this 1x per year as I move to a more minimalist lifestyle.
