  • Ready for anything

    im a new member here and have been using DA's methods for about 5 months already. im thinking about getting 'ready for anything' but having qualms that it might contain information that i could already find in forums like this one. any recommendations for the book?

    It's a great book. Sure, these forums and others around are excellent, but I think the book is really worth the few bucks. I've read it several times- there's always something new to find in there.

      thanks thoppa. ive browsed the book and saw that some of the chapters were the same with some of the newletters.. so i thought it was just a compilation of previous forums and newsletters. but im getting the book anyways. just wanted some reassurance. cheers!

        You won't find tons of new material in RFA. Most of it is further explaination of GTD.

        It is a great way for you to reinforce your GTD system and gain new insights. Follow the recommendation to read and implement one chapter a week. Well, worth the investment.

          Great Book

          I really enjoyed RFA because it showed the principles behind GTD. Whereas I felt GTD was fairly technical, RFA is more of the big ideas behind the system. I regularly read RFA for more tips and tricks I might have forgotten about. Once you are on the GTD bandwagon- RFA gives you nice daily doses of GTD Zen.

            GTD is a journey, not a single next action. Once you have the basics, constant and regular reinforcement is a key.

            To achieve this, re-reading GTD, reading RFA, listening to the audio program, going to a GTD Roadmap, and participating in GTD Connect are all great ways to reinforce the behavious - to develop them into habits.

            I love the concept of RFA being a way to get a "daily dose of GTD Zen". Thanks gtderik.

                If you like, there is a Yahoogroup starting up this week to read RFA chapter by chapter. You can join at their Yahoogroups site.

                  The book is definitely worth getting. Besides, you generally can't bring the forums into a bathroom and RFA is GREAT BATHROOM READING! It is on my @bathroom list!

                    The scary thing is that you have an @bathroom list.

                    The scarier thing is that I know someone who installed WiFi, and the *FIRST* place he tested it was on the throne.

                      Great idea to have @bathroom list. I could suggest it to split it further

                        Quick technical question here: Do you split your @bathroom list into an @bathroomwork and @bathroomhome? Or are you one of those lucky work at home types? What if your house has multiple bathrooms?

                        Might I suggest the following project?
                        Project: Read forums in bathroom.
                        N/A #1: Skim through recent forums and print favorite threads. @computer
                        N/A #2: Put printed printed copies of forum threads in bathroom. @home
                        N/A #3: Read printed threads. @bathroom

                        In all seriousness, the book sounds like a good read. I'll have to get a copy.
