Then try the method he describes. Within the course of a week, I became much more effective and organized at work and the stress of wondering “what am I forgetting” at the end of each work day has all but completely lifted. Like almost every powerful concept in life, this method is so simple it is almost embarrassing that I hadn’t been doing it naturally before.

I love Linenberger’s approach and configuring the system is easy. Having already bought into the system, I would rather have purchased a quick short list of configurations rather than having to work through the whole book again. Additionally, would be easier if he broke it into sections for, and Mac separately e.
It was difficult at times to figure of if I was in the right Outlook version configuration description. Perhaps better delineation e. So the presentation lacks a bit, but the overall content of the book is fantastic and has made me considerably more productive since I started following this process a year and a half ago. Easy to set up, lknenberger to follow.

Linenberger has another book that is not Outlook specific, but I think this one is better at showing you linenbetger to apply his linenbergdr within a task management app. The only thing I don’t find all that helpful about his system is t This is an extremely helpful guide for making the desktop version of Outlook Tasks usable.

The only thing I don’t find all that helpful about his system is that it is intended to manage only one-off tasks. I keep upgrading to newer versions to keep up with the changes in Outlook. This is the best version yet. The changes he has you make to Outlook are easy to implement. His system for outlkok through tasks is immensely helpful – as well as being a great guide on how linenebrger get the maximum juice out of Microsoft Linneberger.
So I’m guessing that if you’re feeling overwhelmed enough by work to want to read something like this, then you might also be feeling too overwhelmed to read a book this size. Still, it helped get things a lot clearer in my head!

Excited to see how they work! I always glean good tips from the Total Workday Control books. This system is linenherger me to tame the Outlook dragon! Finally, Outlook Tasks makes sense! Jan 15, Robert rated it really liked it. The one thing that really stands out about this books is that it is realistic and practical.
It recognizes things like most workers don’t have the authority to just delete tasks, that you do have more on your to-do list than you actually can do, and due dates aren’t stable, predictable or reliable.
The fact that it uses Outlook is tied up with this mindset, as most people have Outlook at the office, and need a system that easily ties in with e-mails. So far I’ve just been applying the basic prin The one thing that really stands out about this books is that it is realistic and practical.
So far I’ve just been linenberget the basic principles and system in Outlook and it has been working pretty well. Now I’m trying to figure out if I can apply it’s guilt free technique to Asana, which at the moment is my solution at home.
linenberget One shortcoming, which isn’t huge, had to do with the presentation of the book. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but the layout wasn’t a joy to read.
Some of the explanations of the philosophy were linneberger little too long, and the technical setup explanations could have been more brief. But then I’m the otulook of person who could have figured out the setup on my own by just poking around in Outlook.
These are all minor complaints as so far the system is working well for me. I felt I could better utilize my Outlook system at work, was recommended this book through a colleague on Yammer. I gave it a shot and really liked a lot of the principles. Linenberegr book is detailed in the setting up of Outlook to the author’s specs and also has an appropriate amount of background information to go with it.

It’s nicely laid out so it is easy to find what you are looking for and skip what you don’t want or doesn’t apply to you.
It gave edits for Microsoft Office The switching between editions was a little tedious, but worth the effort in the end. I would recommend this book to any knowledge worker who feels behind in there work and ljnenberger they can better use outlook to manage it I am still using this system 7 months later and still loving it!
I’ve recommended to colleagues who have also loved it. The title should tell you that this is a very niche book, but it may not prepare you for the very very specific system inside. For those who live in outlook, Michael Linenberger provides a highly-structured system for managing the neverending flood of incoming tasks disguised as emails.
Lineberger set up, the system auto-focuses on items that you need to do today specifically and this week in general, while those items that are ‘over the near horizon’ get hidden from linenbrrger list. Outlok don’t worry, they ar The title should tell you that this is a very niche book, but it may not prepare you for the very very specific system inside.
But linenbsrger worry, they are still there, and they will pop up on the list at a more appropriate time. The only problem with this system is that it is extremely outlook-customized-specific, and none of the rules will traverse SMTP or POP.
So if you have just one outlook running, this will work great. If you are syncing your email to multiple computers, and your non-outlook phone the system breaks down.
