    1111=== Verdict: [[Image(htdocs:icons/green-up-arrow.png, inline, nolink)]] **Recommended** (but only chapters 1-4)
    12 The book uses Agile principles as a basis for defining a results oriented approach to work and personal life. The meat of the book is in the first part, chapters 1-4 (about 60 pages). Parts II-III and the appendix (the remaining 180 pages) expand on the information in part I (needlessly?). Be warned, there is a **lot of unnecessary repetition** of the same information with added verbosity later in the book. Despite all these negatives, I highly recommend part I of the book.

    1414I've tried several systems of self-organization to prioritize tasks and reduce "wasted" time. I found some of them vague (e.g. Just Fucking Ship) or unsustainable (e.g. What the Most Successful People do at Work). To clarify, those books have worked for people, they didn't work for me.
