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.

Yeah, this book wasn't as good as I expected and although I read the entire thing (because it wasn't bad enough to bail on), it certainly didn't leave me with any lasting excitement for the methods the author suggests you follow. It's turned out to be one of the few books I've bought that I wish I hadn't. It was short and to the point, so there was that. Really though, there just wasn't anything that I came away with that made me feel like I hadn't wasted my time reading the book.

Sometimes we don't think we have enough time to do everything
that we want. But with this book, the author says we can by using
the image of an egg timer. You use it for cooking, why not for
other things like to exercise, or clean a room until the timer rings
or one of the many other suggestions that the author gives in this
book. Must read.

This is a quick read on using time well and making more time for the people and things you love.

An excellent example of using the egg timer and getting the tasks of the day done. I recommend this to anyone who needs a fast start to getting time back.

Great job 's. Tombrakos !

Nice time management info and a fairly quick read. I actually use some of the tips now. For some reason, the text showed up very small on my Kindle Paperwhite when I first opened the book however increasing the font size solved the problem.
