I read Time Management in an Instant last week and, for the first time in 25 years, the scattered papers on my desk, and in my files, are vanishing, some into a trash can and others into files. I hate paper work and have made a dutiful practice of avoiding it my entire life. I spend hours looking for invoices, bills, the names and phone numbers of business contacts I jotted down on a piece of paper and can no longer find. I have paid untold sums in late fees and penalties because I was unable or unwilling to organize my priorities in life. My goals were not sufficiently specific and my fears overarching about everything I needed to do. I had so many things to do that I simply did nothing. Time Management in an Instant walked me through my fears, distractions and avoidance behavior. It provided me with simple methods of organizing my time, a rewards system for actions taken, practical exercises that helped me organize my thinking so I was then able to organize my life. It is not just another `to do' book that becomes something else we must do, but an inspiring and motivational journey that teaches us to take small, prioritized concrete steps toward our goals, large and small.

Format: Paperback
This one was a mixed bag. On the one hand, a lot of tips brought together in one place; on the other, deeper concepts are not necessarily given the depth or context they're due if one is to really internalize them and change habits.

I wouldn't recommend it to someone who hasn't read Getting Things Done and some of the other most popular time management books - to whom these authors owe a debt of gratitude - but if you know enough to see who they're paraphrasing it's a useful aggregation of ideas. One particularly bad thing is that they did not include a bibliography pointing to those other sources. Some were cited in the text, but haphazardly (e.g. no mention of David Allen's Getting Things Done in tip 19 "Capture Your Open Items" which is practically an abstract of a chapter of his book).

Format: Paperback
Well the title says it all - this is not a big monster book which requires you to change you life to somehow manage to get the impossible done.
1) It's super compact and a good commuter/bathroom read - where else do we have time to read these days ;-)
2) It's jam packed with practical advise you can fit in to the way you work, not the other way around
3) Karen knows what she is talking about and has saved her readers the time to research it all
4) Best of all IT WORKS!
Enjoy!
P.S. if you ever get a chance to see her live at one of her workshops, jump on the opportunity, she is funny truly a topic expert and will not waste you time.

Are you slogging through your day feeling there just isn't enough time for it all? Has your to-do list gotten out of hand? In 60 imminently chewable bites "Time Management in an Instant" covers the need-to-knows of organizing your business or your home so that you're not working in service of time; time is working in service of you. You'll find here all the nuts and bolts needed to get you from life as a Chinese fire drill to life in control and on course. This is an excellent road map that's been well thought out and clearly delivered by two experienced and sought after practitioners of the science and art of time management.

Format: Paperback
As a very busy chiropractor I found solid easy to digest help on virtually every page. My interactions with patients have improved as a result of remaining in the present and yet, I seem to have more time with each patient. Perhaps more interesting is the buzz the staff hears in the reception area where 'Time Management In an Instant' is a big hit. There are times patients will return to read more after their visit. Of course, we wholeheartedly recommend they purchase the book for themselves.

I learned so much about how powerful it is to focus,prioritize,and how to deal with procrastination. What I love is that it is easy to follow and to implement so I am using what I learned. It works!

I attended a one-day workshop covering the content of this book, and since then I've used the tools and habits everyday in my work and personal life. I'm impressed with the level of research they did within the industry and documented the best practices for time management in one very accessible book!

I purchased this book for a project I did in a training class. I was conducting a training on time management. I ordered multiple books, and this is the book I choose to model my training off of. This book was set up well with a good flow which made it a quick airplane read for me. I recommend this book, but agree with others... don't make it the only book you read on time management if you're really interested in the subject.
