Productivity consultant Helene Segura, who bills herself as the “Inefficiency Assassin,” has a clear theme: Time management is life management. She details her “CIA framework” for time-management, advising you to “create clarity,” “implement structure and flow,” and “assemble your team” to manage your time productively. She offers tips and techniques you can use to make your personal and professional spheres more efficient. She advises against multitasking, interruptions and “flooded inboxes,” just as she advocates prioritization and her “DID” method for “Dealing with Daily Papers.” getAbstract recommends Segura’s manual to anyone plagued with too many tasks. Use her helpful ideas to turn your “to-do lists” into “done lists.”

In this summary, you will learn

  • How to manage your time using the “CIA framework;”
  • How to master the “clarity,” “structure” and team work it requires; and
  • How to deal with organizational and productivity issues.
