For today’s knowledge workers, life revolves around the inflow and outflow of communication. It comes through more channels than ever: meetings, conference calls, email, text, voicemail, chat, social media and more. It also comes more frequently than ever.

Technology has given us new and better ways to connect — but, do we have the right systems to manage it?

In Greek mythology, Sisyphus was condemned by the gods to suffer the worst punishment imaginable: To spend eternity rolling a giant boulder up a steep mountain, only to have the boulder roll back down after the apex was reached — once the boulder hit bottom, the task would repeat again.

Today’s knowledge workers face their own modern version of torment- we spend countless hours getting through our in-box, day after day after day. It’s overwhelming.

In the end we are left with the feeling that we are never caught up. We are trapped in the thick of thinning things.

This book was created to help you break out.

Praise for Said & Done

"Though I’ve spent decades in a career exploring and teaching how to get things done with less effort, reading this book heightened my perspectives and sharpened my focus in that arena even more.” -David Allen, Author of Getting Things Done

“SAID & DONE is a revelation. This wonderfully engaging book achieves the near-impossible ‘how to’ that I have always strived for: if you want to share an idea–be brief, use pictures, and tell a story. Magnificent.” -Dan Roam, Author of The Back of the Napkin and Draw to Win

“The ideas in SAID & DONE are simple and effective. This is the first book we’ve seen that tackles the complexity of modern communication with such elegance.” -Bonnie St. John & Allen P. Haines, Coauthors of Micro-Resilience
