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.

I have been successfully using Mr. Linenberger's systems for quite some time now. I started back 1n 2006 with "Total Workday Control". in 2008 I started working his 2nd edition of "Total Workday Control" with Outlook 2007. This is when I first started working the "Master Your Now" methodology discussed in his current volume. He introduced the MYN system in the 2nd edition of his Outlook book and has expanded on the processes in "Master Your WORKDAY NOW!"

In this current book he has moved the system to paper for a faster implementation. This book is divided into three main sections that correspond with his Workday Mastery Pyramid. The MYN and Workday Mastery Pyramid are graphically represented to resonate upon first reading. My personal Outlook implementations from the first two books have worked great and been a huge success for myself and other teammates who have also implemented these systems.

Mr. Linenberger's teaching style as presented in this book, like his others, is through and patient. He provides many examples and offers up some great companion worksheets on his website as well as a Quick-Start Guide. I downloaded and printed all the worksheets to use while reading the book. These forms are very handy while reading so you will want to download and print a set before you start chapter 2 and then again in Chapter 5 when you really get started. The companion website has lots of stuff so check it out early in the reading process.

This book is no fast read. You will want to spend time working with each section. It reads like a conversation between an expert and his charge. I spent the most time in section two "Create" since I was familiar with the MYN system. I would even recommend starting with chapters 9-13 if goal-setting is high on your 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.

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'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."
