To maximize returns with OF, it is worthwhile to get the book. The further you move away from tactical day-to-day stuff, the more similar (and familiar!) GTD and FC become. However, as you already...

As I recall, the trigger for folks wanting gantt charting is to avoid overcommitting on projects at work. Your approach to dealing with this should really have very little to do with OF. If you are...
