The author's strategies and tips are sensible and can be applied to lots of situations.

This is a nuts and bolts book for those of us who have so much we should, could, and would do that we decide this is nuts and bolt.
Ralph Chadis
This book is for anyone with a reflective turn of mind who wants to view their life and habits of living from a fresh perspective.

Format: Paperback
Despite lip service to anything else, modern consensus reality would have us see ourselves as, above all, economic entities: Consumers and, as importantly, Producers. In this view it's our moral imperative to become as Efficient and Productive as possible - to fulfill our purpose as human beings by maximizing our output (of money, happiness, service, or personal satisfaction) while minimizing our costs in terms of time, energy, and money.

What's wrong with this picture? If you've ever found yourself uncomfortable thinking of yourself as a productivity machine, you'll like Pamela Kristan's book. In simple, practical, and holistic terms, it offers nothing less than a way to reclaim our own lives.

All this in a book about time management? Indeed. (For what else do we have to work with in this life, but time?) Beyond simple formulas, recipes, or bullet points, Kristan shows us how, in the process of learning to manage our time from a completely new perspective, we can re-vision our entire lives. Ms. Kristan has spent decades researching and developing these ideas in her own life and in her work with clients, and she offers the wisdom of a lifetime in this succinct and eminently readable offering.

Don't worry if you don't think of yourself as being on a spiritual path. This book is for anyone with a reflective turn of mind who wants to view their life and habits of living from a fresh perspective. If you've read this far, read Kristan's book - it's a unique, and uniquely thought-provoking, read that could change your life.

Have you ever felt like you're running on a hamster wheel and can't get off? Want a new perspective on how to stay calm in this fast-paced world? Look no further. This practical, powerful little book will help you take a deep breath, get organized, and feel more peaceful. As a small business owner who's always plugged into my phone and computer, I'm used to operating at top speed. I get a lot done. But, day to day and week to week, I also feel haunted by the stuff I've "neglected"--the daunting stacks of paper work, the To Do lists buried beneath the other To Do lists. Sometimes, I feel like I'm falling behind and won't ever quite catch up. The author's strategies and tips are sensible and can be applied to lots of situations. Her discussions of Attention, Boundaries, and Choices really helped me get a handle on my all of my loose ends, gave me insight into why I avoid doing certain things, tuned me into my unreasonable expectations of myself, and helped me gain clarity about how I want to spend my time. Slow down, sit down, give this a read. You won't regret it.

I loved this book. Deep, simple, and wise. Like most people I know, I struggle with how to be engaged in the world (including e-mail!) and still live a balanced, happy, present life. Pam Kristan's book gave me both practical tools and overarching philosophy that I'm putting to use now every day

Format: Paperback
AWAKENING IN TIME is not your parent's self help book! It's a book that is about spirit coming alive in the realm of time. Our time on earth is precious, and spiritual. This book touches on that reality. It's also practical big sister advice. The chapter on Change, and what it Brings is marvelous, and organic way to approach change. "As it turns out, desire, willpower, and gilt rarely help us change. What does is presence--being able to bear the truth, seeing it from a wider perspective and staying with it long enough to work with it. That prepares fertile ground for the seed of change to sprout." This book will have practical and long lasting benefits, and it's a joy to read.
