I daresay this is the best book on workflow management I've ever read -- and I've read a LOT of books on that subject. I predict that this book is going to be a huge hit and a long-term classic in its field.

I'm seldom impressed by time management books these days since I've read so many of them, but I must say that Michael's Workday Now system impressed the heck out of me.

I've been gradually implementing changes to my own processes based on Michael's ideas, which are so intuitively and logically sensible that I can easily see they're going to make my workflow management significantly more effective.

It's hard not to compare Workday Now (WN) to David Allen's Getting Things Done (GTD), which has been an extremely popular time management book, especially in the blogosphere. GTD deserves its position as a classic in the field, but in my opinion WN presents a superior overall system. I loved GTD when it first came out, but I had to make numerous tweaks to the system to make it more practical for me, and there were certain elements of the system that bugged me, like the tediousness of the weekly review, the potential for truly massive Next Action and Someday/Maybe lists, and the questionable Waiting For list.

The WN system is in many ways similar to GTD. Both of them start with a bottom-up approach to time management, encouraging you to first take control over the out-of-control elements of your work in order to reduce stress and restore a sense of order to your life. Both involve creating and organizing task lists and identifying next actions. Both stress the importance of processing your email inbox to empty and not using it as a surrogate to-do list.

If you are looking for some practical/tactical ways to handle work chaos, I would not buy this book. Instead, go to his website and download his FREE ebook "The 1-Minute To-Do List." It is excellent and contains a more succint version of the first 1/2 of this book (what, in my opinion, is the BEST 1/2).

If you are a follower of David Allen's GTD methodology, you will likely find Michael's approach to daily task managemet a great addition to what you are already doing. In fact, I will even go so far as to say that Michael offers something that makes GTD next actions and the weekly review much more doable.

If the book stopped there I would have given it 5 stars. Unfortunately, half way through the book, Michael does a 180 from the tactical/practical to the world of new-age visualization and self-actualisation. I am not knocking this content, but it is a stretch to try and link it to detailed steps about how to better manage your email and to-do lists. Really, it should have been a separate book.

I've never succeeded well with to-do lists at work. They always get too big, with everything being marked "Important," so I usually end up going back to doing whatever seems really urgent at the time. I'm so relieved to have finally found a book that can show me how to create a to-do list that really works.

Linenberger's techniques are amazingly simple--the best solutions always are!--but very powerful. My tension level has dropped significantly since putting them to use. Also, the book gets you started in just a few pages--the very first lessons will help you clear your deck. Get the book. You'll be glad you did."

Linenberger's new book has an excellent mix of practical daily tips for staying ahead of the deluge at work, but also very powerful insights into why work slips out-of-control so easily, and how to prevent that. Book has the best write up on Goals I've ever seen.

I'm about two thirds of the way through the book. I may update this review when I finish. I'm writing this as someone who's used David Allen's Getting Things Done System for about eight years. The GTD system is in the background for me, now. I barely think about it, and I just use it. That said, while I'm basically an efficiency blackbelt, and I'm selling new ideas to my boss and pretty much running my own show at work, I've been having trouble getting my big personal goals off the ground. I've been unable to fuse long term vision with in-the-trenches action, for the things that *really* matter to me. So, I picked up this book on Steve Pavlina's recommendation.

And now I feel compelled to write this review, having not even finished the book yet. This book is very, very smart. It's phenomenologically aware, as in, it's closer to how my brain works than the GTD system. I've basically been doing what's in this book, having modified GTD to actually work for me. But now I have a way to employ an operational system in pursuit of my truly long-term goals--GTD isn't nearly as nuanced and complete about everything above the runway.

In the book, there's an exploration of how to craft goals using a two-part vision/target goal definition. There's also an extended exploration of how to mold and shape a goal until it truly feels possible and personal. The author suggests many possible techniques, such as NLP and EFT. To this list I would add Eugene Gendlin's Focusing technique (search on here for a book called "Focusing" or click here: Focusing). I plan to use Focusing in combination with this book.
