Book News Annotation:

This is not a book on how to use software, but, rather, on how to work efficiently in the context of the computerized world. Productivity consultants McGhee and Wittry offer this resource for people in any business, school, or home context who want to clear the clutter, be more productive, and establish a better life-work balance. That's a big order, but they've broken it down. After a chapter on 10 beliefs that limit productivity, they delve into the matters of defining productivity, understanding objectives, and then creating and using an integrated management system. Identifying pitfalls and common misuses of time and systems, they address detail the efficient use of e-mail, calendars, and files and folders for a reference system--all in the interests of planning, decision-making, and workflow handling.
