I don’t recommend books easily. I know they are an investment of your time and reading them means you are spending time that you could be doing other things. This is a great investment of your time and well worth it.
The book covers all aspects of organization in your life; email, digital clutter, time management and of course, stuff management. The book starts out with an assessment and a detailed look at Maslow’s Pyramid. It’s a great way to evaluate your life. Then, Tamara talks about the productivity pyramid. This really helps you determine what you want to accomplish and to view a road map to your destination.
A series of questions are presented to the reader and then your answers are analyzed so that you can assess your current situation and determine where you want to go, how to get there and what chapters to pay special attention to.
Knowing that it’s sometimes hard to implement the advice given in organizing books. So, she throws in some real life stories, with photos. She even shows you some product solutions in the book. And, when complicated projects are discussed, she gives you more than one option so you can choose the one that works best for you.
By identifying the tasks you need to accomplish, the priority you need to give each of them and how long they will each take, you can more effectively and efficiently plan your day and accomplish more. The Secret to Peak Productivity goes into much more detail on all of these topics. Its conversational style and easy to read format make it something you can read in between drop offs, appointments and even on the treadmill.
