Taming The To-Do List
No matter how much we accomplish in a day, we nearly always feel a little guilt over what we didn’t do. But do we really have more to do than the women who came before us? Maybe not. In Taming the To-Do List, Glynnis Whitwer exposes a seismic shift in society: from one in which most of us were proactive to one in which we carry the burden of having to respond—to every email, text, tweet, and message we receive.
This creates a cycle where everyone else sets the priorities for our days rather than us directing our own lives. The result? We procrastinate, putting off the important stuff for later while we tend to the “urgent” stuff right now. It’s time to take back your schedule! Ready to tame that to-do list? This book shows you how.
Cafe Lily's Review:
If you are struggling with putting things off, managing your time wisely, and getting anything done - this book may be for you. The author talks a lot about procrastination, but overall there is a lot of solid advice in this book and great ideas. She addresses fear, perfectionism, being too busy, bad habits, willpower and more. At the end of each chapter, there is a practical application section.
