Rebecca Barnes, August 30, 2010 (view all comments by Rebecca Barnes)
I am consistently looking for ways to be efficient. I love streamlining and do it in my sleep, on vacation, and other times when I am supposed to be relaxing. So I really got a lot from Stever's book. I like efficiency for the sake of being efficient. It never dawned on me to be efficient so I could have a LIFE!! Madness, I tell you. There were several tips in the book that I already was practicing: that affirmation alone was worth the price of admission. Several were new (to me)concepts such as Admin days vs. Focus days. As a business owner, you are constantly bombarded with requests and "emergencies" Although I'm good at handling them, at the end of the day; I never seem to get everything done I intended to do. By setting up blocks of time, and simply making myself unavailable, I am much more productive. Although there was that mishap with the dog needing to be let out, but that is another story. The best nugget of all was the secret to how to say no. How do you say no without making a mortal enemy? Stever tells you. And the best part? If you HAVE made a mortal enemy, just send your reanimated zombie army in to destroy him! I recommend this book to anyone who wants to go from living to work to working to live.
