really liked it
Recommended for: folks feeling overwhelmed by all they have to do
Read in November, 2007

I've not yet fully put this system into place, so I'll have to hold off on the final review, but so far what I've put in place is helping. The author's contention is that taking care of the details and emphasizing the "Next Action" habit creates the freedom for more creative and longer-term thinking. Following up with the little things is also important for maintaining trust in any group, whether it's a business, community organization, or family. I'd recommend this book for anyone who is responsible for creating and/or putting into place multi-step actions, and for any group that meets and has a tendency end without clarity about what the attendees are charged with doing.
