THIS POST HAS BEEN UPDATED: See Remember Everything with Autofocus 4
I’m in awe of Mark Forster’s Get Everything Done Autofocus System. As a longtime user of David Allen’s Getting Things Done, I have encouraged project managers to read and adopt GTD. Until now, I believed that this was the most effective system around to manage the hundreds of active tasks and projects on most of our plates.
While I still would encourage you to purchase and read either Getting Things Done or Making It All Work, Autofocus may be an effective alternative. I’ll be testing it over the next weeks, and will let you know how the experiment goes.
So far, here are some wonderful advantages I see of Mark Forster’s Autofocus time management system:
- Only 8 steps to follow. You can do this!
- Everything stays in front of you.
- The system itself gets out of the way very quickly.
- Your intuitive part gets a say in what you do.
- Your logical part gets a say in what you do.
- It’s a trusted system. Things will not get lost.
- Recurring items are handled elegantly in the system.
- More rapid review of open items. With my personal implementation of GTD, some actions items can sit for days without review or progress.
How are you doing with getting everything done?
