From the Author
The "violence" in the word "warrior" was intended. For although the work you do can be slow and easy, to master non-linear time you must pull out your sword ahead of time to carve out periods of space and silence.
Your war is against interruption and distraction.
Because if you can bring gentle sustained focus to a task, you'll never "fail." --This text refers to the Kindle Edition edition.
From the Back Cover
the concept of time management on its head. He actually transcends the concept.
Chandler demonstrates that the very notion of time efficiency is outdated and unworkable.
For me this book is the best of combinations: a stimulating ground breaker, an entirely fun
exploration and an energizing mind shift. Time Warrior is a gem - a book whose time has come.
Jay Adams, Host - EMMY Award Winning Breakthrough Medicine and Fight Zone TV
If you want more time, make time for this book. No excuses. It contains
the secrets to productivity and will change your life. Now.
Dr. Joe Vitale, author, The Attractor Factor
Think of all the things you'd like to do someday but
supposedly can't because there's not enough time. Now
imagine having your belief about 'time' being removed
from your mind with one slash of a samurai sword. That's what
Steve Chandler does for you in Time Warrior. He stuns
you with the REAL reason you're not getting things done,
then restarts you with the simplest, easiest and most profound
way to master your time without wasting a second
on managing it.
Matt Furey, author, The Unbeatable Man

Well, this review is no different - this is an excellent tool - not a book, not a "read", etc. It's a tool that I have personally used to get "unstuck" from the habit of continuous email checking, internet ADHD sydrome, pausing to play scrabble on my iPhone every 5 minutes, you name it! With short, easy to digest chapters, I was able to return to a place of calm, focusing on a single item until it's completed, then move on to the next one with ease. Yes, I still take a pause every once in a while to do some of those old activities, but they're a choice and not a distraction and it feels good to know that I accomplished my necessary items first, the ones that propel me toward my goals.
So, simply put, this is an enthusiastic review of a great tool - one that you should find as useful as I did if you'll take its advice seriously and put it into action.
Steve Chandler is a man who just GETS it that our problems can't be solved at the same level as we created them. Most time-management books help busy people manage their time better so they end up juggling even more balls in the air and feeling even more stressed!
This takes traditional time-management and turns it on its head: its a book about what Chandler calls "non-linear time management". There were moments when it was like he was calling me out personally, on how I hold myself back. And other moments when I laughed out loud!
Peter Drucker said, "The best way to create the future is to create it." This is a book that kept on reminding me - chapter after chapter - to create MY future...
For decades I used to be so motivated, having lots of coffee to keep selling selling..focusing, driving...creating....problem solving....and then one day I just burned out! My body put a stop to it and claimed its sleep! I lost all motivation and energy. Coffee no longer jump started my day and when I even thought about getting back into my professional life, starting with managing my time, I felt sick.
Brian Tracy's aggressive approach in his books now overwhelmed me emotionally and made me feel nauseous. Then, after two years of retreating, by chance, I heard Steve's interview on Michael Neill's show.
When I saw the subject of Michael's show, Time Management, I almost didn't listen, but something whispered to just give it a chance. After hearing this interview, I immediately ordered Steve's book. It has been such a gentle push for me! Little tiny nuggets are showered in the book like, "What do I want to produce? What structure will guarantee that?" and "By simply beginning the task we were putting off, and finding out by doing so that well begun is half done."
Sometimes when I feel overwhelmed with too much to do, I read, "Just do that one thing - you know what it is - it's the thing you're thinking about right now." I focus on that next action with ease and without overwhelming and stressing myself out!
The Time Warrior has been like a bible to me. I have sentences underlined, highlighted, marked, and I carry it with me everywhere I go to keep focused and motivated! It's perfect for the person who tends to get distracted a lot as well.Read more ›
Slow down, focus on the moment, the only thing that is important is that one small thing that is in front of you right now.
Do yourself a huge favor, and BUY this book.
I've read "Fearless" and "Reinventing Your Life" several times - and now I'm reading "Time Warrior" and all I can tell you is his work revolutionized my attitudes.
I can cite examples of times when in the past I would have given up on something because all the pieces didn't fall into place as I imagined they should - but then I thought of Steve's words - I am an OWNER, not a victim - problems are adventures - and each time I was able to creatively solve the problem and make things happen!!
"Time Warrior" is a tool, every day I read a few chapters and I follow through with actions I haven't wanted to take or hadn't thought of. As someone who went halfway - I'm now using these tools to go all the way with my passions and the work I love and am also dealing with the work I do to earn a living with a much better attitude.
I know I'm on a journey and I'm taking actions towards my goals. In the past two years I've gone through a difficult divorce, lost my mother, my grown daughter moved 3,000 miles away from home, I had to move, find a new job, lost my dog -- I've had so many life events that would have put me on the couch for a long time - instead I've been able to overcome these challenges a day at a time and move forward, in great part, thanks to Steve's writings.
Read all of Steve's books - several times - use them as tools - reinvent your life - and step into your power!
