GIDG's covers a number of basic personal principles for management of time and organization, but makes them easy to listen and reflect upon Some of the tips might be new - others not. However, these coaching tips are worth revisiting from time to time. Stever Robbins makes them vivid and interesting.
Clutter is my nemesis, so I have a stack of books on organizing (somewhere) about a yard high. I learn, I purge, I splurge and start over. Stever's book is refreshing and real, and is not full of the same old baloney. It is a mix of some classic organizing tips but with a fresh twist, plus many new takes on our current battles with high-tech "time savers."
But I think the main reason I have given this audiobook 5 stars is that this guy is genuinely funny AND full of good information all the more memorable with his quick pace delivery. Total edutainment! I have already put several ideas in use and I seem to winning the battle, for now.
Nothing new in this book. Time tested principles that work, what makes it great to listen is the author has some real good funny one liners . He is a bit of a comic and he makes it very enteraining to listen to
you can sense his passion for the topic, I am a speaker too and have a similarly interesting voice, funny that I notice that. I listened from audible.com and really enjoyed. In fact I am using something I learned right now. I am using my computer as a tool, writing this review and going right back to work.
Everything is better with humour and Stever gives practical, usable tips with a health dose! The book includes lots of tips and also makes you think twice about how you are living your life. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and am even implementing some tips already!
I already knew the author by the podcast.
It is both useful and fun.
It's not only about getting things done, it's also about focus, relationship and so on.
Some of the ideas are identical to other you can find in Tim Ferriss 4-hour book; here though they are somewhat more human, I'd edulcorated and therefore easier to adopt.
