5 Stars because I know for sure I'll be referencing it repeatedly. I love the values-based approach. Many useful tools also provided.
Some of it's references to software are outdated, but the bulk of the book is about how to manage yourself, not software. Software is no substitute for knowing your own values and discerning the alignment of your values to potential projects.
Interesting book with lots of good ideas about organization and project management. However, the reason I am giving this only three stars is that I think it would be a better book if taken along with a class. Lots of hands on examples and activities, which are great, but the message would have been hammered home better if used alongside a class or workshop.

Lynne Snead is the person who started Franklin/Covey's project management program and this book represents the simple, effective system she developed to help anyone become more effective at what really matters. I was delighted to get the opportunity to co-author this book with Lynne. We hope you enjoy it.

Read it more than once. That simply tells you everything. At the time I was too busy to read or get organized. I was an Industrial and Commercial (ICI) Realtor in Canada and received a tree a day in my inbox and two more digitally.
If you find yourself responding to chaos, this book will teach you how to control it. This book focuses on the skills required to bring your sidetracked focus to a skidding stop.

The book was collecting dust until I plucked the courage to read it. I am glad I did. Usually management books bore you and makes you feel incompetent. Enter "To do doing done". This book exceeded my expectations. It is warm and friendly, very practical to disorganized folks...... Full of anecdotes, examples, charts, flows that do not bog you down but help you assimilate the discussed topics. Exit "Disorganized me".
This is my favorite book for small scale project management. By that I mean the sorts of projects an individual might take on ... schoolwork, multi-day projects at work, and so forth. This is NOT the book for large scale team project management.
I never actually finished reading this whole book, but it has a lot of good ideas and I've used several in my daily planning now for years. It's kind of a Franklin Covey promo.

I think that there are better project management books out there. I think this will be my last Franklin Covey book for awhile.
