One of my Fav bloggers is Leo Babuata. I really dug into his book Zen to Done. It gave me the motivation to create a positive creative structure around my work life balance.
So what is Zen to Done?
Zen To Done is a simple system to get you more organized and productive, and keep your life saner and less stressed, with a set of habits.
Zen To Done takes some of the best aspects of a few popular productivity systems (GTD, Stephen Covey and others) and combines them with the mandate of simplicity. It makes things as simple as possible, and no more.
What does Zen to Done teach?
Simply put, ZTD teaches you:
- The key habits needed to be productive, organized, and simplified … and no more than that.
- How to implement these key habits … tips on forming a habit.
- How to organize these habits into a simple system that will keep everything in your life in its place.
- How to simplify what you need to do.
- Minimal ZTD. Also includes an even simpler version called Minimal ZTD.
