Security Forces Squadron Commander U.S. Air Force
"I wanted to say how overjoyed I am at your book, Getting Things Done, and the changes it's allowed me to make. I've used this information and snippets from your website in my occupation as a United States Air Force squadron commander (currently running an organization of 550). No longer does a day full of meetings make me dread spending long hours in the night to catch up on what I missed, and therefore get home after the kids are in bed. I am very excited and thankful at what I've discovered and what you've given out."
