While I was offline for a month, I kept a note of any links and news stories worth commenting on. Now that I’m back, I’m aiming to post two short items a day here, about stuff that happened during my online absence, until I’ve cleared the backlog. This is one of those.
This post, with its ambitious title, appeared in my RSS feed a few weeks ago. When I’d read about half-way through, I was almost sure I’d figured out where it was going, and how it would end, and was crossing my fingers that this guy wouldn’t let me down.
I totally called it.
In revisiting it just now, it still seems like a worthy winner, and I could only think of one possible contender to the crown. The choices really are sadly limited, when it comes to accessibly written self-help advice that actually works, based on proper evidence.
Pleasingly, that other book (David Allen’s Getting Things Done) is mentioned more than once by the commenters on that post. It is also quite brilliant.
I’m not going to tell you, so click through and find out what won this particular prestige. Some of you should be able to guess it from the lead-in.
