My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book, along with Getting Things Done The Art of Stress-Free Productivity, is one of the most influential books for me in terms of reducing stress, increasing productivity, and generally having a much more peaceful worldview.
As a pastor, I am constantly torn between the desire to be productive and to engage in pastoral care with my congregation. Allen has helped me to put all of these things into perspective, and has allowed me to balance the various parts of my life (home and family, work, play) in such a way so that I am able to gain both control and perspective on how I spend my time and energy.
I would recommend this book for anyone who is stressed, overworked, feels like their life is out of control, or who wants to gain a bigger view of how all the parts of their life fit together.
