I've adopted much of the spirit of these tips into my work flow, and people are a little amazed at how effortlessly I keep my inbox empty, seem to reply to everyone with careful consideration, generate all of my reports and maintain a calm/stress-free demeanor the whole time. Granted, all of this didn't come from this particular book, but there are some great ideas in here.
and I made a mistake. And this is NOT because the book is bad or poorly written or has no information inside. And this is why giving the stars here is hard thing. How to rate book if YOU can not use a single trick, because you just do not like them or do not need them?
Book is about (TECH!) tips, but I was buying the book, since3 I thought it will be more thinking and time management related.
Gina teaches you how to block entertainment website before 3 o'clock, before you had not done the job - no this or that website, Firefox will not allow you open it and so on so on. Every tip I read I answered - cool yes. Interesting - yes. Will I use it? No.
And so all the way in the book. What I want to say - if it is possible - TRY look inside the book before you buy - some people may find it useful, but if you are regular reader and search for time management books - i am afraid you will expect different book. This is most hard review I ever wrote here. I strongly suggest - get a sneak preview of some tips - you will LIKELY have a reactions like - interesting & cool.... by seems I will not use it.
I'm a tech-savvy, fairly squared-away, David Allen reading, Merlin Mann watching guy, but still found a lot of valuable information in this book that I put into practice immediately. The author goes out of her way to offer as many platform agnostic (doesn't matter if you use Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Firefox, IE, etc.) solutions out there. I suggest reading while seated at your computer because you'll want to try out the tip right on the spot.
Whether you're an organizational nightmare or firing on all 8-cylinders 24/7, you'll find some good material here. It belongs up there on your book shelf with Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity.
Lifehacker is a great collection of hacks that will make your life easier and more interesting. I recommend this book to anyone who possesses this desire.
