More About the Author

Jurgen Wolff is a writer and creativity and productivity coach. His books include "Focus: use the power of targeted thinking to get more done" (www.focusquick.com), "Creativity Now!" (www.jurgenwolff.com), "Your Writing Coach" (www.yourwritingcoach.com) "Do Something Different" and "Marketing for Entrepreneurs" (www.forentrepreneursbooks.com). "Focus" has become an international best-seller with seven foreign editions.

Jurgen has written more than 100 episodes of TV including "Relic Hunter," "Benson," "Family Ties" and the animated series he created, "Norman Normal." He also wrote the film, "The Real Howard Spitz," starring Kelsey Grammer, the mini-series "Midnight Man," starring Rob Lowe and TV movies featuring the Olson Twins, Walter Matthau and others. His plays, including "Killing Mother" and "Living Skills," have been produced in London, New York, Berlin and Los Angeles.

Too many people let fear and procrastination stop them and my goal is to help them overcome those blocks."

Format: Paperback
I actually ordered this book before it was available in the US because of an immediate need for focused attention in my life. As a result of what I learned I will be brief here because I have other important things to do. Jurgen Wolff provides a wealth of informed, practical, and useful tools, tips, and techniques to help anyone become more focused and productive. I say anyone, because most books like this encompass a more left brain, logical approach. Jurgen provides a more balanced approach because he also addresses the needs and struggles of the more creative, right brained folks and suggests different approaches for them to use.

One of my favorite methods is using alter-egos to help focus and get things done. It has worked really well for me; the only concern I have is that I may be becoming schizophrenic. Which reminds me, the author interjects just enough humor to make the whole book an enjoyable read. So buy it, read it, and do it - you'll be glad you did.

Format: Paperback
As a college student, I cannot even begin to describe how helpful this book was to me! I've read other books that are supposed to help with focusing, but nothing has come close to being as influential as his book.

The tips and advice make so much sense and were easy for me to implement in my life. The best part is that nothing required a big shift or lifestyle change. They were all simple and straightforward steps I could take immediately ...and I did! I saw almost instant changes to the way I approached my schoolwork and job. His book has really made a big impact on my life in the best way possible. I've become way more productive and my grades show it! I couldn't be more thankful that he wrote this book!!

Anyone can read this book and take something away. The tips are easy to apply to basically any kind of lifestyle. They're all interesting and like nothing I've ever heard of before. But they really work! It would be a mistake not to check this book out!

This is the first book I've read that really tells you how to use both sides of your brain in order to be more creative and productive. It's practical, easy to read, and has helped me to focus my attention and energy where they need to be. Highly recommended.
