This review is from: Tell Your Time: How to Manage Your Schedule So You Can Live Free (Kindle Edition)
Do you know the time it takes to do everything on your to-do-list? Probably more than the time in a 24 hour day. Too many demands, not enough time. That's how I feel, most of the time, and it often leaves me frazzled and stressed. I also feel helpless because everything on my list is either "necessary" or "good," and it seems impossible to give anything up. The largest culprit is my job; I spend 40 hours per week at work, and then I bring home, on average, an additional 10 hours per week of work home. Factor in sleep time and most of my week's allotment of time is spent on my job and in my bed. This past year has been particularly hard; I knew I could not continue with the way things were, yet I didn't know how to change it...until I found Amy Lynn Andrews's Tell Your Time.

This is not a new "program" or a fancy organizer, but it is a new way of thinking. The principles are sensible and do-able. One of my favorite lessons was learning how to distinugish between roles and activities. Focusing on activities rather than roles was one of my main problems in failing to manage my time efficiently. I may not be able to do every activity, but I can fulfill every role - and do them well.

I have read the book twice (which is easy to do because it is only 30 pages!) and I am working on implementing the principles. Although I have just begun, I am noticing that I am now able to do more in the time I have, and I am also feeling less frustrated about not doing everything.

If you have some of the same time management issues, I encourage you to read Amy's book.
