Summary of Time Tactics of Very Successful People
If you knew how to do all this, you wouldn't need a time-management book. But if you don't know how to prioritize, focus, organize your office, use shortcuts, and say “no,” you can learn (and you really do need this book).
If B. Eugene Griessman wanted a good subtitle for this book of time-saving tactics, he could use, "Time waits for no one." He offers many common-sense pointers on how to avoid wasting your time - and how to keep others from wasting it, too. It’s eye-opening to realize and calculate the value and importance of every hour, even your leisure time. People in all walks of life - students, stay-at-home parents, business leaders, teachers, self-employed workers - can glean ideas for using time effectively from this book. If you are a procrastinator, this book will encourage you to "do it now." While some of the suggestions here may seem too simplistic to those who already employ some time-management tactics, getabstract.com recommends this book for inveterate - if inadvertent - time-wasters. You know who you are.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to get a handle on your time;
- How to improve your efficiency; and
- How to learn to say “no.”
