Taming the To-Do list
Ever just wish the world would stop for a day so you could catch up?
No matter how much we accomplish in a day, we nearly always feel a little guilt over what we didn't do. But do we really have more to do than the women who came before us? Maybe not.
In Taming the To-Do List, Glynnis Whitwer exposes a seismic shift in society: from one in which most of us were proactive to one in which we carry the burden of having to respond--to every email, text, tweet, and message we receive. This creates a cycle where everyone else sets the priorities for our days rather than us directing our own lives. The result? We procrastinate, putting off the important stuff for later while we tend to the "urgent" stuff right now.
It's time to take back your schedule! Ready to tame that to-do list? This book shows you how.
My thoughts: Unfortunately, most of us find ourselves in the position of over committing ourselves and then procrastinating when it comes to making sure those commitments are met. With personal insight and stories, Glynnis offers hope for those of us who procrastinate.;) I like that she gives tips for readers to be able to determine what our true priorities should be. I also appreciated her myth buster.;)
If you find yourself bogged down with your to do list, then I highly recommend that you not procrastinate: pick up this book soon.;)
I received this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
