One of the great things about this book is the fact that it mentions early on how different we all are and how there is no one answer to suit everyone. With this in mind the author has gathered information from a number of successful authors, marketers and business people.
These highly successful people share their strategies for being focused, on task and getting things done.
While it’s full of interesting articles by the different authors the book can be broken into four sections:
• Building your routine;
• Finding your focus;
• Taming your tools;
• Sharpening your creative mind.
Manage Your Day-to-Day is not a complex book; each contributor has a chapter of their own that briefly discusses the point they are making. It doesn’t go into great depth and much of the advice is not new but it is delivered really well and serves as a great reminder for simple ways we can increase our productivity.
It is a very easy read and one of those books that we usually enjoy going back to time and again. It’s the type of book we can flip open to any page and have a quick read of a chapter, especially if the point being made resonates with you.
If you are struggling to stay on track, easily get distracted or become bogged down with the to-do list then this is definitely the book for you.
For me, I’m an avid reader and have been studying business and marketing for a few years now so there wasn’t too much eye opening information but it was certainly enjoyable. In reality, while we know what we need to do, it’s easy to get caught up in the distractions and daily grind. This book will challenge you and give you some sound advice and strategies for getting back and staying on track.
As a small business owner it’s a great tool to have on the bookshelf, or to sit on your desk.
