In Put Time Management to Work: Get Organized, Streamline Processes, Use the Right Technology, Peggy Duncan helps busy professionals and small business owners examine every aspect of how they spend their time, and offers many practical solutions for managing it.
Duncan offers time management tips that go beyond setting goals and knowing how to juggle priorities. The book begins with ways to eliminate clutter—whether it’s on your desk or in your mind—and explains how to create a system so that it doesn’t come back. After you get organized, you’ll be able to think more clearly, so you’ll then set goals to help you focus on the right things.
After that, you’ll learn other timesaving techniques such as how to delegate, handle interruptions, say no, overcome procrastination, reduce time spent in meetings, and more. The book moves on from there and explains how to eliminate useless work by streamlining processes and creating procedures that are easy to follow.
To top everything off, the author explores timesaving technologies and computer tips that will help you finish work quicker. To help bring everything together, Duncan outlines two case studies that include practical tips and techniques you can use at home and at work to help you get back in control.
I know time is scarce, and I know you’re busy. You probably don’t think you have time to read this book. You’re probably 100 percent sure you don’t have time to change anything about your life. And you probably believe that there will never be enough hours in a day. You’re mistaken, and throughout this book, I’ll show you why.
If you constantly dig through piles looking for something you know you just had; or if you're working hard but not making sufficient progress, or if you have time to do things you have to do, but not enough time to do what you want to do, this book will help you.
This book does not delve into a lot of theory, but has solid, real-world solutions to help you get back in control. I'm an efficiency consultant, not a psychologist, so nor does this book attempt to get into your psyche to help you figure out what's holding you back. The solutions offered in this book are for busy professionals and business owners who know they're ready for a change, and are ready to make the commitment to do it. I'm offering you expert advice that's easy to read and that's applicable to your everyday work. And because I'm also a computer trainer, technology solutions are intertwined in many of my examples.
I’ve helped many corporate employees and small business owners and their employees make work easier. The ideas in this book have been tried and tested in the real world with busy people just like you. To make them work for you, you have to make the commitment to stop the vicious cycle you’re caught up in: the cycle of not having enough time because you’re wasting it. You have to make the time and take the time to do this. And unlike dieting or exercising, the results are immediate!About the Author:
