Short, but packs a punch
In the beginning of his book, Michal lists the things that he does on a daily basis. Believe me, the list is impressive.
Although I have been managing my time successfully for many years, and routinely reach my goals and get done what I consider to be important, this book has given me a number of new tips that I have incorporated in my life.
Another fascinating aspect for me was the number of books and blogs the author mentions that I am familiar with.
Notwithstanding what ...more
I'm always curious to learn more techniques on how to control/improve time management which triggered reading this book.
As (hopefully) expected there is, of course, some nuggets to be mined .... things I already know being reinforced as how to do it as well as some nuances and new tips.

It is then up to the reader to figure out which tool ...more

I have read this book three times over the last 4 years. That fact would surprise many coworkers and fellow students from my university days. I have a dual form of dyslexia and because of that have always needed to be very organized in order to be successful academically, and later professionally. And to be honest this is one of the best books for organizing your time I have come across. In a previous review I stated that "I would compare Michal to Robin Sharma, Stephen R. Covey, Dan Millman and ...more
