I think the book paid for itself in the first day. I no longer worry about really important tasks getting lost in an inbox 100 ft deep. At the end of every day, my inbox is literally empty. And the anxiety of looking at overdue tasks in red and having to sift through a lot of tasks that aren't due for a number of weeks are things of the past.
Don't even think twice- but this book. I am sure there are other systems out there that work just as well if not better. But if you don't have a system, try this one.
Easy to read.
Step by step diagrams on how to finetune your Outlook software. You don't have to be an Outlook pro to benefit from this. Quite the contrary.
Have found not one error in the book.
Online explainer videos, some of which are free
I've been trying to be organized for 20 years... tried paper Daytimer, Franklin Covey. Tried Omnifocus. tried Outlook tasks a couple of times. read Covey (x3), David Allen, attended seminars, etc. read at least 5 other time management books by less advertised authors. always felt overwhelmed.
This book is great for synthesizing and summarizing prior author's thoughts about getting organized. It is really EXCELLENT for putting step by step instructions at how to manage the "to do" list..... it gives you the Outlook settings so that you don't have to experiment or develop them yourself.... that in itself is a great timesaver.
My peak Outlook In-Box was 4771. I get ~ 120 e-mails a day. My IN-Box is now usually < 200, even 3days after coming back from vacation. sometimes my IN box is 50!
so, getting better, but not quite to zero yet.
This is not only informative, he tells things like they really are and 'shows us' HOW TO overcome specific problems and issues.
I'd recommend this one to ANYONE who needs to improve on their time and task management, especially when it comes to e-mails and keeping better track and control over their daily workload.
Indeed, it is very important that one FOLLOWS Mr. Linenberger's processes and methodology almost to the letter and you WILL get the biggest bang for results. He even starts us out with a 'Quick Start' process to get us acquainted and in my opinion, that's what got me off to a GREAT start.
This is indeed a GREAT read. I doubt you'll be disappointed, unless of course, your looking only for SHORTCUTS.
I think the book could have been configured better, it teaches windows outlook and mac; it would be nice if in the 5th addition the two different operating systems could be completely separated in the book so you don't have to skip over material and find your place again.
