Is anyone familiar with this system?   I heard him on the radio and just finished the book.  It's based on the idea that we try to keep too much information (things we need to do) in our mind and it reduces productivity and leaves us stressed.  So the solution is to use external sources to keep track of what needs to be done and review them regularly, along with listing the next action that needs to be done, rather than a broad topic. 

 

I've been helped a lot by FlyLady, but I think this would be a great help as well and cover the areas that Flylady doesn't get into.  The book is mainly geared for professionals at work, though he says it works personally as well. 

 

I'd love to hear anybody's experience with it, and especially how to adapt it best for a SAHM.

 

Thanks.
