Ready for Anything

Ready for Anything

  • 52 Productivity Principles for Work and Life

After reading Getting Things Done back in March I did have a note, in OmniFocus naturally, to re-read it in six months time which is about now. Instead I read Ready for Anything expecting more of the same and was disappointed.

I guess that the 52 essay format just doesn’t really lend itself to reading from cover to cover. The 3 or 4 quotes that are scattered at the edges of each section don’t really help either. After a while I stopped reading them hoping to get more insight from the text itself, but that didn’t happen either.

The only good thing that I got from the book was that it has kick-started my GTD system again. It kept referencing Getting Things Done which really made me wish that I’d read that instead.
