Publisher's Summary

Learn: Why most people fail at getting things done!
Are you creating to-do lists that never get to-done? It's easy to start each workday with a lengthy list of tasks. Then something unexpected comes up. Next thing you know, the day is almost over. You work hard at a frantic pace, but you end up feeling frustrated because there's not enough time to do everything.
We all write lists with the hope that they will turn us into productivity machines. Sadly, to-do lists often have the opposite effect. The wrong type of list can be de-motivating, causing you to slack off and procrastinate. Discover how to create to-do lists that are both actionable and doable!
The truth is anyone can write a list. The hard part is creating a list that's actionable and also fits into your busy life. More often than not, people fill their lists with a disorganized mess of tasks, wants, needs, and random ideas. Then they sit around and wonder why they're not getting significant results in their lives.
What's the solution?
Rethink the way you manage your daily life.
Specifically, you should use multiple lists that cover different types of task. That's the core concept you'll learn in the following book.
"To-Do List Makeover" provides a step-by-step blueprint for writing effective, actionable lists. You will learn:

Nothing ground breaking

Really not a lot of new information here. A lot of rehashing of old ideas. There are some good practical approach approaches to being more productive and staying on track though. If you like this one "Getting Things Done" is probably better as well as "Eat That Frog".
