Collins Best Practices Time Management Set Priorities To Get Things Done Right by John Hoover
Last night on the train home after work, I read Collins Best Practices, Time management, Set Priorities to Get Things Done by John Hoover. I rather liked this book with its simple format and lots of color. The book is well designed.
Time Management is a practical book. One of the only measures which you can get from these types of books is can you use the ideas in the book and will it help you in your work. This book reminded me that I needed to get a new telephone log for my desk.
Most of the ideas are fairly simple. If you are more organized you can be much more creative. Make sure you schedule extra time to finish things, activities usually take longer than you plan. Keep a to do list and prioritize which things you need to finish first. Choosing which things you do is more important than planning to do everything at once. Simple, practical, easy to use.
There is a summary of points to remember at the end of each chapter, and at the end of the book, there is a summary of the whole book. There are quotes, bullet pointed suggestion lists, and simple self tests on your time management skills. The book ends with a suggested reading list and index. I read the book in two hours. Take the time to learn a bit on time management.
