Your life is a reflection of the next 15 minutes - if you don't know how to manage the next 15 minutes, you don't know how to manage your life! Today's business professionals struggle with too many emails, too much social media, too many competing and changing priorities, and too many interruptions. As a result we are increasingly scattered and stressed. Worse, we are led to believe that we need to speed up to keep up. The Perfect 15-Minute Day Method (PDM) helps us gain clarity and focus in our busy lives simply by taking each day 15 minutes at a time. With just a journal and a timer, the Perfect 15-Minute Day Method gives us a simple yet effective way to manage our focus, our thoughts and emotions, and achieve mindfulness at work.

I enjoyed this book. it was well organized and easy to follow. I'm still trying to understand all components of the Perfect 15 - minute day concepts, but the techniques that I HAVE applied have already helped me start to be more mindful about how I spend my workday. There were some great new ideas about how to be more intentional about starting and stopping work on tasks, and I appreciate the tips on microplanning.
The narrator spoke clearly, which was nice, but I had to listen to the book at almost double time because she spoke so s-l-o-w-l-y that I'd lose interest in what she was saying before the sentence would end. On 1.8 speed, it worked well, so that was good.
One suggestion for improvement: the book kept referencing different kinds of "marks," and I had no idea what the author was talking about, so the audio book experience would have been greatly improved by the inclusion of a one-page PDF attachment showing the marks. Having some kind of key would have helped me follow the process a bit more completely.
Still, this is a great concept, and I am excited to continue working it into my daily and weekly planning practices.
