What business person doesn't feel constantly pressed for time, struggling mightily to fulfill an ever-expanding array of professional obligations while simultaneously juggling an always increasing litany of personal responsibilities? Kerry Gleeson, founder of the Institute for Business Technology, presents a comprehensive but easy-to-implement plan for "getting things done" on the work side (which then leaves more time for other matters) in The Personal Efficiency Program. Gleeson's "PEP" plan outlines a variety of organizational processes and simplification systems that should work if diligently implemented, and suggests ways to use them effectively in real-life situations. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Top Customer Reviews
From the standpoint of self-management & work productivity, I consider them to be the best in the genre.
In essence, the High Tech PEP book is a further extension of the earlier PEP book. Basically, it shows the reader how to exploit technology (email, groupware, internet, cell phones, etc.) as a personal information management tool & how to apply the low-tech principles of PEP in a high-tech environment.
What I like about both books is the smorgasbord of concrete suggestions & useful checklists from the author. Also, I like the author's superb presentation of his brilliant work as embodied in the two books: each chapter comes with a preview & ends with follow-up action points. Bravo! as these aids make reading a breeze!
In a nut shell, these are the relevant chapters, respectively:
Introduction: Personal Efficiency Program - The Missing Link;
Do It Now!
Organize It Now!
Do It Routinely;
Plan It Now!;
Follow-Up & Follow-Through;
Do It Right, Now!;
Do It Now! - From Whereever You Are!
Be a Do It Now Manager;
Organizing the Team to Act Now!;
Maintain It Now;
Epilogue: Just One New Habit;
Principles at Work;
Organizing Your Workspace;
Organizing Your Computer;
Organizing Yourself with a Computer: Time & Money;
Road Warrior Wisdom;
The Internet & World Wide Web;
Whether you are a desk-bound strategist or road warrior, these two books will undoubtedly equip you with all the proven strategies & practical tools to be a better manager of your projects...your people...your time... & most importantly, yourself!
To end my review, let me recap this wonderful passage from the PEP book:
"The best education doesn't teach you how to work. No matter how well you know your field, you won't be your most effective until you exercise good work habits - until you are able to get things done, on time, & with the most effective use of your resources."
