Summary

You Want to Manage Your Time Effectively but You Don't Know How?

If you ask most people why they cannot get things done on time, you will notice that most of them will take a defensive stance. Rather than thinking of the things that they can change personally to improve their productivity, they focus on how other people and their environment affect their use of time.

In this book, I dedicated my effort to showing you the real meanings and reasons of managing your time effectively. It is not just to help you be more productive in your work but more importantly to have more time to spend with your beloved ones. At the end of the day, it is not about what you have accomplished that makes you feel fulfilled, it is who you become and those you help, care about, and inspire that matters the most. That is the ultimate purpose of this book, and I really believe that you will enjoy it.

This book breaks training down into easy-to-understand modules. It starts from the very beginning of having great time management skills, so you can get great results - and achieve massive success!

This will change how you think about your time.

I am in the middle of the book, listen while on the bus to and from work. I must say, it gives those who don't know much about time management, a different way of doing things. I like the fact that it questions entrepreneurs, stay at home parents, and others, if they apply each secret ,what would they accomplish?!!! You've read it before, you've heard it said a number of ways and this book is no different, but it is worth the price and the time it takes to listen it. With each new iteration of these principles, it imprints a little more and a little more.

Some fantastic life hacks

Easy to listen to and I've implemented a couple of the tips, such as rearrange your phone apps into the different home pages to avoid immediate distraction. The first book I have read /listened to since having a baby and it's inspired me to keep going.

very easy to listen as it is written.

Very practical advice, but the examples helped me to see what it looks like to carry it out and the results I'd like to achieve. More than step by step - this book has worksheets you can use if you need things written down, checklists you might not consider as important, etc. I enjoyed listen this book. It gave good advice and I could relate to many of the examples of people who procastinated. I found the suggests for improved time management very practical I've worked in the manufacturing world for three years and during this time found myself spiraling out of control due to bad Time manquent. The constant meetings and quality issues made it impossible to feel in track

Life Changing for a Sysadmin!!!!!!!

A holistic technical manual for the new and seasoned systems/network admin who wants to do more than constantly put out fires; work long hours; and feel misunderstood by management. Lots of great recommendations. I especially liked the idea of rotating support dutues with other sysadmins to separate time between dedicated user support & maintenance and project work. Tom's book is spectacular -- and brief, too! He walks you through several critical strategies for sysadmin time management, including using a ticketing system to track requests. The writing style made it easy and fun to read, and I am recommending it to anyone who happens to come near my cube.

Best book for time management.

Short book that covers the basics of how to make the most of your time. It shows you how to trim your time to find more time. Time management is something that many people continuously struggle with, especially myself.
This book is very helpful. It explains many powerful solutions, which I'll definitely be putting to use soon.
I recommend that everyone grabs this book now and puts the techniques & tips inside to use. this book was what I was looking for! I frequently find myself not knowing how to manage time and this means that I loose it and loosing time means loosing money and being able to manage your activities, friends and your own life! this book is full of helpful tips!!!

Timeless tips for Everyone!

Great book to serve as a reminder of some time management concepts that Brian Tracy covers in his other books. Nothing new here, but a good reminder. This book was no exception, it delivered the most comprehensive and straight forward information you could expect to get from any of his books. I would recommend this book to anyone wishing become a better manager of his or her time. The concepts presented are easy to follow and adapt. REALLY good book! I bought it and the information that I've learning from it is incredible.

So powerful book.

Just fantastic information that I would think should be obvious, but we all get lost in the day to day with family obligations, business obligations etc. As a small business owner, it is like having a coach telling me what I can do to be better at my job. I have the his other book- the Customer Rules- as well. Fantastic. I will read everything he writes. Its a very practical book.

Annoying narration

Not really tailored to the seasoned busy executive. Probably more applicable to the younger student entering the workforce.

Very Practical

Amazing tips, very clear and relatively concise explanations with truly impactful content included! I will definitely re-read/re-listen. The narration could have used more humor or liveliness to increase engagement.

Only common sense stuff

I thought I would be reading different strategies to help me overcome certain obstacles. Instead, it lists off coming sense things that adults already know. For example, it explained that picking up your kids from school is both urgent and important. Well duh! I couldn't bear to read any more. This is both a boring and insulting read.

Not very good

This was hard to listen to. The narrator sounds like a high school kid giving a presentation in class. Sorry, narrator.
The book itself is for you if you need tips to help you not be interrupted by your phone or emails, or if you're not good at setting goals. Always be punctual because it makes a good impression! is how the book starts. Always wear a watch. Turn off your phone. Rank things in order of importance. This is "how to stay focused, for beginners". Not much on actual time management. I was looking for advice to get my workspace and workday more organized and efficient. This book was definitely not for me.

Short, concise and direct to the point

I've listen a lot of books about time management. Most of them tried to cover everything about this subject and are not deep, just suit for the beginner. This book is really unique, different to the others, it just tells about How to create a management tool. And of course, by just focusing on one aspect, he can make it detail, short and concise.

Definitely a great book with lots of insight. I found the book requires some effort and experimentation to really.

That is why this book is a good one!
