Mark, i first read 'Do It Tomorrow' (the first time-management book i ever looked at - urlwolf recommended it) and it really grabbed me. i've praised it elsewhere on the forum and i think it still stands out as the best, most direct, material i've read for self-motivation.
i then read 'How To Get Everything Done' which was almost as good but i could see that DIT had improved on the ideas it contained.
i then went on to read 'How To Make Your Dreams Come True' and i felt completely lost and confused. i could see the positive ideas but overall it seemed at odds with the DIT theories that i had really been struck by.
now, a few weeks have passed and i have to say that my 'natural' way of working is more akin to what you were doing with HTMYDCT - perhaps because i've neglected to make any lists recently or do much else besides just get on with the tasks i wanted to do.
i made a request, that urlwolf would ask you in the phone interview about how you reconcile the your 2nd book with your first and third books. at the time i made the request i was sufferring from wanting to have strict guidelines given to me about how to procrastinate less - now, i think, i'm beginning to see that you can choose a method for a particular time and task, so i'm not entirely sure if i still think there is anything at odds with your 2nd book.
still, if urlwolf gets the chance to put the question to you then i hope you can provide an answer for the podcast. if not, then i hope you'll be able to say a few words here. i don't think it's such a problem for me now but it would be nice to know what your thoughts are.
(i think i will even reread HTMYDCT this week as i feel i need to look at it without my original prejudice.)
