I’ve just finished reading “How To Be Smart With Your Time” by Duncan Bannatyne. It’s not the sort of book I normally read, but was a station purchase while waiting for a train. Much to my surprise, I found it excellent, and I’m applying tips from the book in my life and seeing good results already.
The book gives very much the same principles as any book along these lines – prioritisation, focus, deadlines, efficiency – but gives very concrete, simple and practical ways to put the advice into action straight away. Without having to stop to plan, without having to change your whole style at once, you can do some of the exercises, take some small actions, and see benefits.
I’d recommend the book to anyone who’s trying to juggle lots of tasks, or who seems to be always busy yet never seems to get anything done, or to anyone who just wants a better work-life balance.
