Good in parts but far too long.

The essential point which I took from this book was that you only have so much proactive attention in a day and that time needs to be protected and used wisely.

While there are other nuggets, much of the book fails to hit the mark. Perhaps it was just lost on audio but the authors system of organisation, Master Projects Lists, Daily Lists, Weekly Lists, dedicated thinking time each week just seems over prescriptive, especially for a business owner where the nature of the work can be extremely changeable and an element of thinking on ones feet is required.

Personally, I'm fairly organised anyway, I will take away some good points from this book, however the one size fits all system just seems a little too cumbersome for its own good.

Excellent and immensely practical

This book is written by a U.K. author and is free from some of the "live your dreams" and pseudo-religious idioms that plague American publications. This is essentially a very practical guide about being productive and organised. I suppose it's a time management book but is much more detailed and useful than most publications on the genre that follow only the GTD methods. Without going into great detail it assists you in designing your own personalised but flexible organisational systems, written primarily with work in mind but equally applicable to personal life. Excellent, specific and readily applicable advice throughout, it is also realistic in its aims and advice offered; accepting and working with the imperfections of our human mind and covering topics such as distractions and procrastination. Good advice on email and meetings. I really enjoyed this book having read many Time Management books over the years. It's differentiators are that it is UK focused and very specific and practical. I have instigated quite a number of its recommendations myself. Enjoy!
