  1. John W.Redelfs

    Many years ago this book taught me to manage my time effectively rather than efficiently It has been one of the ten most important books in my life primarily because it taught me the 80 20 rule The 80 20 rule is that twenty percent of every list organized by priority makes up 80 percent of that list s value If it is a to do list, it can teach you do do the important things first Twenty percent of the files in a filing system gets 80 percent of the use Twenty percent of the carpet in your home ge [...]

    I was in my mid twenties when I bought a used copy of this book Now in my mid sixties, I still use the author s ideas, especially when my ridiculously busy life threatens to careen out of control Why this book At the time I was working as a trainer, preparing volunteers to work with maximum security prisoners as they began the transition back to the community We spent three months teaching decision making and life planning skills and many of the tools we suggested came from Lakien s book It was [...]

    The book may have been written a long time ago, but believe me when I say that this book actually has innovative ideas than most of the time management book I have read that have been written recently.What I liked 1 the innovative ideas that Lakein has proposed in this book2 the true to life examples that he presents usually from those who have consulted him for time management advice 3 the way he persuades the reader especially in the Goal Setting part of the book to actively try out the ideas [...]

    A famous classic of time management Really recommend to who really wants to get things done, break habit of procrastination or being distracted A light read, but Lakein s advices are really well worth This one was read by President Clinton as he told on his autobiography My life His three timeline goals are Have a wonderful political life, have a wonderful family, and write a book You need such goals to really get control of your time and your life

  8. Featherbooks

    This may be the only business book or psych book on my list, but I was reminded of it by a favorite writing teacher and it still offers invaluable advice on goal setting and getting things done A classic.

    Why I Read this Book Goals are the building blocks of success I wanted to learn how to set the most effective goals to ensure my success.Review In a number of areas on this site, I mention the great importance of setting clear and concise goals in order to ensure that you achieve your definition of success I often say that the lack of clearly defined success is what keeps one s dreams and happiness just out of reach of their reality Setting goals are the first steps to achieving this success.My [...]

    I finished this a while ago, it s short A classic self help book about time management Nothing bad to say about it.

  11. Joe

    This book was recommended by Bill Clinton.I think I prefer the writing style of someone like Brian Tracy and this book did appear a little dated in some areas, however, the content was great.The main takeaway is to decide what you want in life and then to always to your most important task Constantly ask what is the best use of my time right now That might be to work on a new project, call your boss, take a nap, do some exerciseThe most urgent thing is not necessarily the most important thing Wh [...]

    Lots of great tips for managing your time efficiently Very practical, useful guide to getting out of your day I still like Stephen Covey s book better First Things First , because it points out that efficiency isn t the only, or best, approach to time management More importantly, effectiveness is about understanding and focusing on priorities as the core of meaningful accomplishment However, once one s priorities are straight, it is still helpful to know how to get the most out of the time you [...]

    One of the original time management guides I read it for the first time back in 2003 and will always return to it Excellent guide with tips such as the Swiss Cheese Method creating smaller or instant tasks for a larger assignment that requires several tasks and creating a prioritized task list which uses the A,B,C priority level and an estimation of time needed to complete the task Lakein also promotes the 80 20 rule.This book really helped me deal with my procrastination and perfectionism issue [...]

    This book is well recommended, pretty old 1973 and written by Alan Lakein The tone is informal Alan talks about techniques of managing your long term goals, short term activities and assigning priorities I ve been reading the 43 Folders blog for quite some time now and so am already aware of most of these There was nothing new I learnt from this book The book is really tiny and can be finished in a few hours If you re not doing any kind of time management scheduling, then this book will help you [...]

    I first read this book back in the very early 80s and it had a huge impact on me It was so good I ended up recommending it to people and even letting them borrow my copy for a couple of days Of course, one time, the inevitable happened and it didn t come back So, years later I realised it was worth a re read so I searched it out and bought another copy to add to my personal development library Well worth re reading in fact it s time to get it out again now Highly recommended.

  17. Jim Stark

    This is a classic one of the best time management books I ve read, and I ve read a lot of them It is written in simple, direct language that does not waste your time This is a book place to start in any effort to understand the importance in being deliberate about how to spend the hours of the day.

  18. Debra

    I think I read one of the earliest editions of this title, 1973 Having read a lot of time management books this might be the grandfather of some later titles I ve come across Seriously outdated since it predates personal computers, the basic ideas are still valid Kind of a trip down memory lane when managers still had assistants to vet mail, etc.

  19. Angela

    I started reading this to get ideas on how to be productive at work and I was surprised with how applicable the tips in this book still are Despite the examples being outdated, I ve already implemented some of his advice into my daily routine Specifically, the 80 20 rule and ways to prioritize de prioritize really resonated with me.

  20. Chansocheat

    However it was written almost 50 years ago, but the methods still can applied nowadays I find this book useful in many ways, from time management, to better self awareness, and to feeling confidence It did help me answer to many questions I had been curious about.

  21. Shawn Camp

    Some new ideas for myself from such a timed treasured book Now there are a lot of duplicate books by others in this field, but this book shows the root of many of those theories A good starter for those who are interested in studying time management.

  22. Lenore

    Read it because it was touted as a classic in the time management field, though now so much of it has been accepted wisdom that it seems like old news It helped me refocus on working toward goals with purposefulness.

  23. Amanda

    This is an old book I found in my mom s basement Probably one of the practical self help type books I ve ever read I ve definitely applied some of the advice to my own life and continue to reference it months later.

  24. Fritz

    short book, basic concepts, should have been obvious, wasn t it s easy to see what someone else should do with their time, trickier to actually implement it for myself in the face of many decades accumulation of avoidant habits hit the spot.

  25. kristyo widarto

    saya suka konsep membuat preoritas dengan konsep ABC untuk menentukan prioritas utama dan mana prioritas yg tidak begitu penting.

  26. Jamie Barringer (Ravenmount)

    Covey does it better, in my opinion, but this is also a pretty good author for time management strategies and advice.

  27. Dinesh Weerapurage

    It is the best time management book I read Provide lot of good tips for better time management and avoid procrastination Highly recommended for college students and graduate students
