    Are you overextended, over-distracted, and overwhelmed? Do you work at a breakneck pace all day, only to find that you haven’t accomplished the most important things on your agenda by the time you leave the office? The world has changed and the way we work has to change, too. Manage Your Day-to-Day will give you a toolkit for tackling the challenges of a 24/7, always-on workplace. We’ll show you how to build a rock-solid daily routine, field a constant barrage of messages, find focus amid chaos, and carve out the time you need to do the work that matters.

    A. Yoshida says: "Simple book to build a routine..."
    "A must read for creatives!"

    What made the experience of listening to Manage Your Day-to-Day the most enjoyable?

    The contributors showed a real understanding of the artistic and creative mind.


    What about Fred Stella and Laural Merlington ’s performance did you like?

    Fred and Laural did not get in the way of the message. Their delivery was neither turgid nor preachy. I felt that another artist/colleague was speaking to me.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The chapter on perfectionism was bang on for me. Also, in a few places, the contributors drive home that, as a professional artist, you can't expect inspiration to move you to create. Most of the time you just have to get down to doing it.


    Any additional comments?

    Before reading Manage Your Day-to-Day, I would start my day doing mundane tasks like answering email or just looking for something interesting on the internet. Now, after I exercise, I start writing or composing first thing. It makes me want to get out of bed. I rise now about 2 hours earlier than I had in the past. My productivity has gone way up.

    A great companion to this book is Accidental Genius by Mark Levy. He has given me great ideas on how to kick start my creativity through writing; a real boon now that I have all this extra time to create!
