GTD (short for Getting Things Done) this time-management/self-management method was put forward by David Allen (in the field of developing potentials of individuals and companies, he is widely considered to be a world-class authority) in his bestselling book with the same title Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity (first published in 2001 and revised in 2015).

The essence of time management is to manage our mind and action! In layman’s terms, that’s to make people calm down and improve work efficiency, in order to turn our lifestyle with heavy, overload work into a stress-free and efficient one! In other words, first, we must empty our brain to remember things to do and make it clear; then industriously carry them out in accordance with the specific route, step by step. As one of the most influential works in the time management area, the GTD time-management method proposed in this book has long been regarded as the best tool for millions of readers around the world to easily and efficiently finish their work and personal affairs.

Finally, AppNee wants to remind everybody: “Consistently insist on doing some seemingly trivial things, if things go on like this, you will get significant or even unexpected gains”. If you want to continue to keep your lazy and inefficient life or work, just don’t touch this book; On the contrary, if you’d like to make your life/work become more relaxed and orderly, then read it a few more times.
