This isn’t a new book, but it’s still highly relevant and one that we keep re-reading. Allen has rewritten this classic book which provides a straight-forward guide to organising life at work and beyond, leading to a more relaxed feeling of control and achievement. He describes how being more productive and organised helps us to relax and allows us to be more creative. Key tools include the ‘do it, delegate it, defer it, drop it’ rule, how to plan and unstick projects, and how to feel ok about not doing everything. Worth the read.
