Whether you run your own business or work for someone else, youand#8217;ve probably got a lot on your plate. Unfortunately, much of it may not be all that appetizing. Along with the portion of your work that you truly feel like doing comes a generous helping of things youand#8217;d rather not do. As consultants, Steve Levinson and Chris Cooper have seen countless clients struggleand#151;and often failand#151;to do the many success-producing things they know they should do but donand#8217;t feel like doing.

The Power to Get Things Done will teach readers how to consistently turn good intentions into action so that they can be as successful as possible in the work they do . . . whether or not they feel like filing tax forms and making follow-up calls. The book offers a host of practical solutions including:

  • the correct way to think about and treat good intentions
  • the three key principles of following through
  • simple but powerful principles and strategies that will make it easy for readers to solve big problems quickly.

Emerald City Girl, February 8, 2014 (view all comments by Emerald City Girl)
Excellent book on a topic I despise (about myself) and that is tackling the things I don't want to do. The author breaks things into easy-to-swallow bites and it doesn't seem like I have to go from being me to being a perfect time manager overnight. One thing that really jumped out at me is this: "One of the very worst uses of time is to do something very well that need not be done at all." I'm telling all of my pals who work about this book because I know they, like me, strive to be more effective so they can spend less time on work and more time with the ones they love. That's the whole point of this - to be so effective that you can walk away from an unfinished list and be able to spend guilt-free time doing what give you the most pleasure.
