Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

5.0 out of 5 stars I have finally tamed the email monster, thanks to this book.
Jim McCullen has developed a method for keeping control of your email inbox. Using Microsoft Outlook, Jim walks the reader through setting up a few simple views and other settings to make your Inbox sit up and behave. I have been using Jim's methodology for several years now and I am hooked. I can't control the flood of email at work without it. My biggest problem was not having a clear guide to setting it all up. This ebook is the answer.

It is nice to have all the step-by-step instructions with pictures to verify I have it done right. Working very closely with the
Getting Things Done theory by David Allen, the Control You Day system sets Outlook up in a way to work for you, instead of just becoming a pile of rotting, outdated, guilt-ridden email. Before implementing Control Your Day, my email Inbox had thousands of unread or unactioned emails, nagging at me to do something. Today? My Inbox is zero, with everything actioned, filed or planned. It takes a little getting used to, but the results are so worth it.
 
 
5.0 out of 5 stars Corporate GTD!
When I happened upon David Allen's GTD system I thought I'd arrived. Much angst followed. Paper, apps, systems - tried them all (well nearly!) - but always got caught up in the fact that I was limited in the workplace to what I could access - and I kept coming back to the fact that much of my work flowed through email - and therefore in my corporate world through MS Outlook. And, then I found Control Your Day. Put simply this book gives you the tools to implement GTD through outlook. It works - so get it and start getting things done.

 
 
 
5.0 out of 5 stars Very Useful - Makes email simple and efficient
I found the setup and tips in this book very useful. Have have long been guilty of having the "complicated folder system" and not being able to remember which folder I put something. Process emails have become much easier as well. I also have to compliment the author Jim, I had some unique challenges with my corporate outlook settings and he responded to more than one email walking me through the adjustments I needed to make. I would recommend this book to anyone using Outlook who would like to be more effective.


 
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book!, January 21, 2013
Upon finishing this book, I implemented Jim's system immediately. Using a logical and sound processing system, he details clearly how to use MS Outlook as a productivity tool that can save time, increase productivity, and eliminate stress.

After just a few days of using the CYD system, I saw drastic improvements in my productivity and organization. No longer am I reading the same e-mail 4-5 times only to defer action again later that day, week or month. CYD helps you organize and retrieve e-mails, reminders, calendar events and other files in a way that ensures information will not be overlooked and it will be retrieved at the right time and place.




 

About the Author

Control Your Day is the final result of a work system I have been using and enhancing for the past 5 years. It has allowed me to stay on top of my workload and reduce the time and stress involved in dealing with the daily onslaught of email messages. I hear so many people complaining about how much time they spend trying to stay on top of their email, I truly believe this book can help. I grew up on the east coast of the U.S. and now live and work in Richmond, Virginia with my lovely wife, two boys and our chocolate Lab. I am an avid mountain biker and occasional marathoner. There is a companion site for the book at www.controlyourday.net and videos on YouTube (search for Jim McCullen). I want you to succeed with CYD, if you have any questions, post them on the CYD forum or contact me through the CYD website.
