Zen To Done is a system that is at once simple, and powerful. It will help you develop powerful habits:

• how to organize tasks and projects to keep your workday simple and structured
• how to keep your desk and email inbox clean and clear
• how to focus what you need to do without distraction

This book was written for those who want to get their lives organized and actually execute the things on their to-do list by changing existing habits. And let me say that changing your habits is possible. Using the habit-changing techniques I describe in this book, I have made many habit changes: I quit smoking, started running, started eating healthier, completed a marathon, doubled my income and got my finances in order, have almost eliminated my debt now, completed a triathlon, lost more than 20 pounds, started a successful blog, and more.

    " There were some useful tips to help simplify the processes from David Allen's Getting Things Done. It's laid out like a collection of blog posts with simple lists to help explain each process. I think there must be some links in the eBook to other blog posts to fill in some of the gaps. That's where the Kindle version falls down a bit as you can't follow the links it feels a bit short and there are a few detailed explanations missing. Anyway it's very cheap and helped improve my attempt at following GTD processes so it was certainly worth a quick read. "

    " Short read, good ideas. . .now if only I could talk myself into trying them! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eustaquio Rangel | 12/30/2013

    " I tried to read the GTD book twice but always stopped after the first chapters, the ones I think more useful. This book I started and finished in few days, and just loved the full content. If you think GTD is too much, try ZTD. ;-) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann Oliveri | 12/27/2013

    " Sublimely simple and effective. I've been searching for a disciplined, simple method for being purposeful, and this is it. Although I am a fan of Getting Things Done and Evernote, both give me a headache. And for a quick fix, there's Babauta's blog, Zen Habits. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tania | 12/21/2013

    " Randomly chosen to be my first book for 2012. Last year I read 130. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Esmeralda | 12/14/2013

    " It is a fast read. I'm searching for some organization inspiration. I will attempt to use some of the tools laid out. My review will be better five months from now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kumanan Murugesan | 12/8/2013

    " I check my personal email only once a day and my work email after my first two hours. I decide what I want to accomplish the next day and focus on that in the first two hours of my day. I learnt all these things in this book. I enjoyed reading this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori Grant | 11/30/2013

    " A must-read book on spirituality in self development for knowledge workers, managers, executives, and entrepreneurs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ferzat Alchayah | 11/29/2013

    " nice easy to read book.should be reread along the year "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosemary Daly | 11/28/2013

    " A fairly standard self-help guide to setting priorities and getting things accomplished. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan Mosedale | 7/31/2013

    " Really well written, and a fast read to boot. It very much speaks to my frustrations with the GTD system, and this feels like a much more humane method. Of course, the proof will be in the pudding, and I've just started in on my first habit change... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Filip | 4/20/2013

    " Nice modified and simplified GTD system. I've adapted some of the rules there and it helped me to make my overly complicated time-management system more easy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay Schenkel | 3/9/2013

    " Good basic information on setting up a simple GTD system. Big fan of Leo Babauta and his zen habits blog. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/8/2013

    " Not anything new. He just combines the best of GTD with Covey's 7 habits and I think that is pretty lame. It is almost plagerism. Pretty disappointing. Most all of his inciteful tips I was going already. I didn't learn anything new. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 LKM | 12/13/2012

    " Repetitive for such a short book (basically gives a brief description of the system, which was quite good on itself, and then expands on it needlessly). Only good if you've never read a book or tips of the sort before. Imho, you're better off just reading his blog, much better than the ebook. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles | 10/22/2012

    " Well written book with good ideas for improving your productivity if you like being organized. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Petr LiÅ¡ka | 4/22/2012

    " Unfortunately I knew many of ideas from the author's blog of Leo Babauta, cause of it book wasn't any suprise for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 2/19/2012

    " this is a good resource. i only gave four stars because it was overwhelming to me because each habit has many steps. i need simple not overwhelming. totally my opinion though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josh | 2/5/2012

    " Great and simple system to learn to organize yourself. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthijs | 2/4/2012

    " Inspiring simplification of the Gettings Things Done method. For anyone who feels like the GTD-system is a complicated overload, this book is highly recommended. Take from it whatever works for you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 11/26/2011

    " Babauta's writing is clear and to the point. He offers practical suggestions for increasing productivity and gaining a sense of inner purpose. "
