Publisher's Summary

Business psychologist Tony Crabbe outlines a unique, four-step approach to combating one of modern life's great problems: being too busy.
Busy is divided into four digestible sections - Mastery, Differentiation, Engagement, and Momentum - that will teach listeners how to switch from managing time to managing attention, how to transition toward a career strategy that doesn't hinge on productivity, how to think differently about success by reengaging with what matters, and how to create the impetus, energy, and clarity to put all these changes into effect. Crabbe draws on entertaining psychological studies to show why we're getting it wrong at the moment and to develop a fresh new approach to taking back one's life from chaotic outside forces. Rarely has a book been timelier in both its scope and in its immediate impact.

Essential lessons

Cheaper 1 is based on one of the most valuable and important lessons that can be taught to people in the workforce today. Getting past busy is one of the most critical factors in achieving success in the modern world.

The rest of the book is interesting and occasionally useful, but the core lesson and value of the book, in my opinion, is contained in chapter 1.
