Publisher's Summary

Time management is perhaps something every person should learn about in greatest detail. This is because time is the only commodity in your life that you cannot regain once it is lost. Time is what makes your life, and if and when you realize that, with every minute that passes, you are closer to your death, you will never ever want to see a moment lost. 

Many people complain that they don’t have enough time in the day to do everything they need to get done. Remember, though, that you have the same amount of time given to people like Albert Einstein, Nicholas Tesla, and JK Rowling. It’s how you manage it that counts!

All projects, especially those which are more complex in nature, require prioritization, but this is much easier said than done. The thing about large projects is that the workload can tend to overwhelm, leading to greater procrastination instead of focus. When you start feeling that you have too much on your plate, you will lose interest and find it challenging to keep your work momentum.

If you want to finally become more productive and squeeze the most out of your time on a daily basis, so you can spend more time doing the things you love the most, then make sure to get your copy today!

Simple Time Management Hacks

While listen the chapters of this short yet effective book. but it is presented in a funny, refreshing way that makes it valuable for those of us who read a lot of productivity stuff, seeking improvements over our current system. I don’t think you’ll find giant answers unless you’re starting from scratch.

Exactly What a Time Management Book Should Be

I was struggling to keep up with all of my work and knew I was not being as productive at work as I could be. Most importantly, the content is well-organized and truly valuable. It never fails to be either incredibly practical or deeply soul-clarifying --- and sometimes it is both!

Not worth the time. Preferred essentialism much more.

The narrator is just horrible. The story has few new points. I enjoyed essentialism by the same author a lot. But this was really mediocre.

Very much worth the time to listen

Brian Tracy is phenomenal, a classic, a master. The book is easily listen because it’s so well written. Each page contains a genuine tip or strategy to use and sort of “wise sayings” that motivate you to action .

Waste of an Audible credit

Written like a college report. Can't believe this is from the same guy who wrote Essentialist and Effortless. Embarrassing. Skip this one.

Suspicious author names...

Greg Allen & David McKeown? Trying to get to the top of the rankings when people search for Greg McKeown (Effortless) and David Allen (GTD)? Something a bit fishy there.

Shambolic Choice Of Narrator

A brilliant book to READ. I have read and listened to all audio books by DM and GA. This is the only painful listen, the narrator is just lifeless and dull.

As an audio book it's a 1*, as a book I imagine it's 5*.

Excellent Ideas

Great resource! David McKeown, Greg Allen shares some of the most practical advice to help pastors everywhere to manage their time in this new resource. I love books that provide useful and practical application for pastors. I have already applied some of these helpful tips and seen great results in my daily schedule. This resource is a "must have" for every pastor's personal library.

Really helpful book

Very practical advice, but the examples helped me to see what it looks like to carry it out and the results I'd like to achieve. More than step by step - this book has worksheets you can use if you need things written down, checklists you might not consider as important, etc. They all help to create a new idea of how to organize your day....leading to a calmer and more organized life. The constant meetings and quality issues made it impossible to feel in track, this book has been eye opening and I'm starting to see the results, highly recommended.

This book is a treasure!

This book is a must have for anyone who works in IT or as a developer. It has saved me time and time again when it comes to making sure all my work is getting done. I usually think of self help books as touchy-feely nonsense read by weak-minded individuals who can't think for themselves. This is still my opinion and that probably won't change. The great thing about this book is that it doesn't read like a self help book or some master plan to happiness. There's no chapter on meditation or talking about your feelings

Its a Life Changer

Lots of great recommendations. I especially liked the idea of rotating support dutues with other sysadmins to separate time between dedicated user support & maintenance and project work. This is an amazing book. The writing style is laid back and the topics are easily digestible. There's plenty in this book to take action on immediately, and there are already some big things I've implemented, like moving my office. One of the few books that have kept its value over the years in more than just face value.
