Rather than using a multiple item To Do List, the author recommends completion of just four daily tasks. Work on these tasks is broken down into 10 and 45 minute time periods. These four daily tasks are the “four most important things every day.” Work on these four tasks and their time periods are spaced out during the day among the other aspects of your day.
The author also recommends a three day project window. He stated: “Any enthusiasm for a new project tends to die off after three days.” He noted that within the three days, it is better to get a first draft in “a somewhat finished state” that can be improved upon later. He also recommends creating milestones with deadlines for each project as well.
I thought the bulk of the content on checklists was actually more about content on templates and recurring responses. In fact, the author actually titled Chapter 3: Templates and Canned Responses.
The book’s content about tools you should consider using included:
• The Google suite of tools
As I read through the book, which was an easy and fast read, I did note several issues with spelling, grammar and formatting. I guess this an example of done is better than perfect. I still think, though, that quality counts for a lot.
The errors I detected, while noticeable, do not significantly distract from the valuable and practical content this book delivers. I found this book to be valuable and helpful, and I suspect you will too.
Next best thing to a virtual assistant! Not just for entrepreneurs - but anyone who wears too many hats in his (or her) life.
Mr Plank takes basic tools (most are free or inexpensive), beginning with Google, and shows how add on-tools can make these programs work together to solve more problems as they make you more efficient (and perhaps more relaxed).
This is best for the start up who is not already wedded to a complex system. This is basic (if innovative) information - but clearly useful.
And, after all, isn't this why we all bought computers or hand held devices in the first place.
A key approach you will learn from Robert in this quick read is to stop using multiple item To Do lists! Robert recommends focusing on accomplishing Four Daily Tasks. Where you break the tasks into chunked time periods.
Another method Robert suggests to tackle projects is to use a "3 Day Window". I know I have seen this in my own work where I get excited about a new project, but within a few days due to competing priorities and info overload I lose enthusiasm. Roberts suggests it's better to get a first draft in “a somewhat finished state” that can be improved upon later.
You will find he practices what he preaches, because the book does have several grammatical and spelling errors. However, don't let that deter you from reading this book! The mindset and actionable steps he provides, along with checklists & templates, are all intact and valuable.

let me tell again
THIS IS NOT A REGULAR CHECKLIST BOOK.
Faaar from it,
This book introduces a different mindset as well as a detailed operation brlueprint for entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneurs are a different breed.
Growth is their breed and exponential calculation is their religion.
Greed and miscalculation are their curses too...
So said, this book operates on solving the issues in careful dealable chunks.
