The Time Bandit Solution won the 2015 Axiom Business Book Award for operations management, lean, and continuous improvement by Independent Publisher, which honors books that help the business community understand changing trends and technologies and point out opportunities in our complicated new economy.
You may not realize you are at the mercy of time bandits - people who steal your precious time, not with malice or intention but with crippling effect on your own pursuits. They steal 40 to 60 percent of your time. And because your worst time bandits are probably your family, colleagues, clients, bosses, and friends, we can't just say no - we would risk offending them or, worse, losing clients or getting fired.
Thus The Time Bandit Solution is a step-by-step lesson on how to recover stolen time you never knew you had. It is designed to teach you the arts and skills for graciously negotiating with the Time Bandits to prevent interruptions from sapping your productivity and satisfaction. The Time Bandit Solution also explains how the damage they cause lingers well beyond the interruption itself, how the stress of interruptions subtracts joy from your most important endeavors, and how to redeploy the time you recover.
