It's not just a book to read. It is a big (200+ pages) compendium of ideas, lists, quizzes, worksheets--a whole collection of absolutely practical material! And because it's just out, all its suggestions for using technology are right up-to-date. How to best handle the mountains of e-mail, how to make the phone your helper and not your enemy, strategies for backing-up your data--all these are covered in great fashion.
Need help with goal setting? Go to Day 2. Need to simplify your piles of paperwork? Check out Day 7. Having trouble with interruptions? That's in Day 10. Mired down with meetings? Day 13. Wondering if you could ever possibly get some balance in your life? It's Day 14.
This is anything but some boring textbook. It's a great read! It's interesting and supremely practical. If you want to stop wasting your time (and others' time, too), here's the one book to get. You'll be less stressed and way more productive.
Instead, readers will develop discernment about what is an appropriate amount of work for a person to tackle. They will discover how to live and work and play in a healthy balance. Professionals will also learn what it means to say no (or yes) to the best opportunities available to them. Yager truly shares timeless techniques for getting the most out of every day and she does it by dispelling old faulty myths, unearthing current recommendations for our highly technical society, and offering fresh ideas that work for you and with you. Yager invites you to invest 14 days to revamp your work style to impact your lifestyle!
Michele Howe, author of Burdens Do a Body Good: Meeting Life's Challenges with Strength (and Soul)
However in 2010, our home and office was hit by a tornado and it took four months to repair everything. Shortly after that, my computer was virused and was not restored for a month. So once again, I found myself back to square one on keeping my office on track.
When I saw that Yager had updated her book "Work Less, Do More" in a second edition (print and e-book) I thought it would be a good time for me to take a refresher course. I love that she still has the 14 day productivity makeover and the "Beat the Clock" section at the end of each chapter. In addition, there are three new sections that are most helpful.
"Six Time Management Lessons that I Learned from my First Boss and Mentor"
"Ten Time Management Strategies to Give You a Competitive Edge"
"Do You Have 5 Minutes to Make a Change?"
Whatever your work obstacles, Yager's new book will get you back on track fast.
