Format: Paperback
In the opening pages, Bob Bly says, "How you use your time is largely up to you. MAKE EVERY SECOND COUNT shows you how to transform time from an enemy into an ally--and become the master of your time, rather than its slave. The best time to start? Right now." (Page 10-11)

Each chapter is packed with specific advice whether you need help with speeding up your work habits, setting goals, saving time and money when you travel, increasing your personal efficiency, using technology to save time, effective networking online, going mobile, delegating oursourcing, getting organized or managing information overload, this book contains something for everyone.

I learned a great deal from it and highly recommend this book as a valuable resource for everyone.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Dad of Divas TOP 500 REVIEWER on December 18, 2010
Format: Paperback
Full of wonderful lessons about how to take the most out of your day this book was full of easy to read chapters that made you truly think about what is important in your life and how you can maximize your time personally and professionally. I was impressed by how easy some of the ideas were, as some were ones that I already do, while others were new to me and ones that I do plan to implement in my own life. While I know that I cannot actually make 25 hours in a day, I know that I can do things smarter and this book is giving me some great new ideas!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Nathan Ives on March 26, 2013
Format: Paperback
Make Every Second Count: Time Management Tips and Techniques for More Success With Less Stress by Robert Bly presents a collection of time management and productivity tips to help knowledge workers and other professionals achieve greater levels of efficiency. Robert's productivity methods address personal performance practices as well as the employment of technologies. While the methods presented focus on improving workplace performance, many of these methods are equally applicable to one's personal life.

While the productivity methods presented are commonly known individually, the book itself does a good job at providing a fairly comprehensive and organization collection of productivity enhancers. This book will be particularly beneficial to those new to and entering the professional business world or to those who are reentering the professional workforce after a long-term sabbatical.

All the Best,
Nathan Ives

Robert Bly has put this book together after a highly successful business career. From his years of experience he has distilled the most effective elements of time management, work-place setup, and other potential stumbling blocks and is shaing this wisdom with the rest of us. I've found it very helpful and return to it frequently for reference.
