Customer Reviews

Had me thinking hard and laughing harder

Dan and Merlin need no introduction. If you've ever spent $20 on more than 3 ToDo List apps for your phone then you need to listen to this, if you think it'll all be better if you can just *get a moleskin / buy an iPad / move to a city* then you need to listen to this.

Some choice (paraphrased) quotes;
Do you need a system to remind you to play a video game?
If you're child is bleeding do you take a moment to check your priority list to see if you have time to comfort them?

It's about finding things you care about, paying attention to those things and perhaps realising whats less important now with your new priorities. Back To Work truly is about Getting Things Done.

Right Out of the Gate

This first episode is quality, quality stuff. A megaton of Merlin Mann, and a skilled host who knows how to handle him. Keenly anticipating where this show goes.


Dan doesn't seem to put a foot wrong with 5by5, and this podcast is no exception.
