7 Applicability

4 Innovation

6 Style


If, like many people, you feel pushed, frenzied, harried and crazed, project management expert Michael Linenberger is trying to help. He applies his logical engineering background to examining how the typical workday actually functions. He offers a multilayered method for getting a better handle on your day by organizing your tasks, activities and goals more efficiently and precisely. The list-making part of the book is perhaps more concrete and less subjective than subsequent sections on defining your mission and purpose, and aligning your life and your work. Linenberger’s clear goal is to provide an entire package that will help people engage in productive self-discovery, so they can achieve work-life balance and career satisfaction. However, some of his processes seem both old school and a bit complex. Still, getAbstract recommends his very empathetic manual, particularly to those who are new to time management and personal goal setting.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How to organize your work tasks,
  • How to set goals and
  • How to connect your work with your genuine inner self.

    A 4/10 on innovation is a little generous, this man has little value to add to this topic. It is all regurgitated from others' work and there is way too much repetition and sales pitches for his outlook for this to be even close to worth even your for your time - read Getting Things Done by David Allen. A great book on the subject.
