Once a week I try to share something that pastors and leaders can benefit from having in their toolbox. These are books, apps, programs, and other things that I have read or used, and found beneficial to me in both ministry and life. This week I want to highlight David Allen’s book Getting Things Done. This book is a national bestseller for good reason. David Allen’s GTD system is used by many to increase productivity and reduce stress in both their personal and professional lives, by getting the needed information out of their heads and into a useable management system. A system that definitely aids in “getting things done.” While I am not yet the most rigid follower of David’s system (I am getting better though), I can absolutely say that this is a book worth reading. If you begin to implement the system outlined in the book you will see the myriad things that clutter your mind and time in a whole new light.
