This book is amazing. I've heard the "use an egg timer" thing before, but somehow I needed this book to put it into use. I used the timer on my phone, but no, our cute orange kitchen egg timer is far superior.

Let me share this: I have ADD. I take gobs of fish oil and fancy vitamins just to keep myself sitting on a chair. THIS book helped me accomplish a lot of things that I've been meaning to accomplish, and to create a structure to monitor and complete several long-term projects, and to actually have the confidence that I CAN complete them. It's amazing. I'm so thrilled with this book, and with my own productivity. This book is amazing!

I read this book when I was struggling with making time for my writing and it helped immensely. The cheery apple timer sitting on my desk is a welcome reminder to give myself 30 minutes now and then. The advice in It Takes An Egg Timer is great for scheduling a hectic day!

I've been a fan of using the egg timer with social media for years. It's how I socialize and meet new people without losing half my day to "messing around" online, which is very fun and easy to do! Joanne wisely applies her years of professional experience to expand this concept into tackling the most daunting of projects that need to happen.

Her style is simple, direct, and very empowering. You can read this through in an afternoon and then get started with your hot project!

It actually did help me to try starting big tasks by just setting aside a non-threatening 25 minutes. But, trying to make a lot of ritual out of that just seems silly -- unless you are really into ritual.

As a businessman providing services to clients, I thought I knew everything about time management. I learned so many useful time-saving tactics from reading Joanne Tombrakos' book, resulting in increased productivity. I was surprised to learn that my multi-tasking skills are really not at all as effective as I had thought they were...I also took note of how much time I really wasted surfing the net on extraneous non-work related topics...among other tips.

For these, and many other reasons, you will certainly find "IT TAKES AN EGG TIMER: A Guide to Creating the Time for Your Life" useful. I highly recommend this book!

Joanne Tombrakos has written a wonderful book, full of useful tips for using our time more efficiently, both in our personal and work life. Her suggestions are priceless, spot on, and helpful. One of her tricks? To use a simple egg timer. Who doesn't want to waste less time, spend more time with family, and create whatever is next for us. I'm sold, and would strongly recommend "It Takes An Egg Timer: A Guide to Creating the Time for Your Life" in a heartbeat.
