Publisher's Summary

In today's busy world, it can often feel like there's too much to be done in too little time. Using time efficiently is imperative to completing tasks on time and leaving yourself enough hours at the end of the day to spend with your family, or doing the things that matter to you. To use your time wisely, however, requires focus, efficiency, and continuous productivity. If you're someone that finds it difficult to keep thinking about the task at hand, or a chronic procrastinator, it can often seem like there are even fewer hours in the day.

Luckily, focus and productivity are skills, and like any skill they can be learned and practiced. Whether you struggle with procrastination or simply want to find a way to manage your time more efficiently, the information and skills that follow in these chapters will help you to make the most of your work day. The first two chapters focus on ways you can improve your brain's thinking power and set up your physical work space for success. The last three explore multitasking, motivation, and procrastination, looking at ways you can change your habits and develop the discipline to get the most out of your days.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

You could say that; while I did not cry I was able to check myself on behaviors not conducive to my current goals. I learned new information that will assist me to better achieve my long term goals.

Focus... for the office worker.

Not what I expected, seems like it's mainly aimed at office workers. Has some good tips if you do work from a office though.
