Recommendation

Peg Pickering presents a standard, basic time and self management guide, which is particularly helpful for disorganized people. She teaches you how to organize your work and yourself. Many of the guidelines will be familiar and seem like plain common sense. However, she presents the material in a well-organized brass-tacks way, and her summaries at the end of each chapter are particularly useful highlights of the main points. She also includes a number of charts, forms and quizzes that provide helpful advice for organizing your life and work. Additionally, the book is formatted in a reader-friendly way, with boxes and frequent headlines and type-changes that make it easy to skip ahead to the topics that interest you most. getAbstract.com recommends this good solid guide, particularly for office workers, managers and business professionals.

  • How to better manage yourself and your time;
  • How to set goals and plan for success; and
  • How to set priorities, avoid over-commitment, and follow through.
