Do It Now!

If you want to get organized and avoid the traps that steal your time, this book offers sound solutions. I particularly like Knaus’ analysis of procrastination and his remedies for overcoming it.

More about productivity than procrastination, this book provides a very systematic approach to organization. Allen’s premise is simple: our ability to be productive is directly proportional to our ability to relax.
