How often do you think to yourself "So much to do and so little time"? Rita Emmett can not give you more minutes in an hour or more hours in a day, but she does offer help with the "so much to do" part. The key is not time management but "stuff" management--all those things to do, people to see, commitments and obligations to fulfill. And mismanaging all that to-do stuff i...more

I loved the author's delivery. It felt like she was speaking right to you. Like all good books like this, she actually didn't have that much new to say. But that's not a bad thing. We all need to be reminded to stay mindful. We let life get in the way.

Don't ever read books like this thinking you are going to find some new, never before heard of technique. There isn't one. There is just life. And life is work. Even when you're not working. There is just always so much going on. It's not a bad th...more
I listened to an audiobook read by the author and joined her weekly mailing list.
Few really good things are listed in this. Some examples:

* you are the best person to take care of yourself. If you still like taking care of others more, think about this: You end up taking care of others' things but you don't remain in a good shape (mentally / physically (read workouts)), then others are not going to have you to take care of them / their things when they need. Put yourself first.

This book was very annoying and useless. I don't the author has the first clue about manage stress or what success really is.
Helen Walsh
Interesting read. I learned, therefore, I liked.

I listened to the audio book, which is narrated by the author. She has an interesting voice and is certainly enthusiastic.

This book does have some good ideas---none of them earth shattering---but they are helpful. I found the chapter on boundary setting especially useful. Also---I'll be following the the recommendation at the end to physically write down an action plan. Soon. I listen to audio books as I'm driving, so.....I have to make a special effort to sit down and listen and write.

There was a lot of good information here. However, I think it made it hard to just be listening to the audiobook. There were so many lists of steps in every chapter that it was hard to keep up on. My favorite chapter was on things you can do to gain energy. I do believe the book changed my thoughts a little but I don't know if it moved me to new actions. It was a good book though with a lot of good stories and quotes. I think I'll look for the hard copy and see if that helps.

Lots of great advice, but the real value will be in the implementation. Nothing earth-shattering or groundbreaking, but it's all solid, "rings true to me" advice for having a happier, less stressful life. This seems to me to be the kind of book that you could pick up, read any page and think, "Yeah, this. THIS I'll focus on for today," and it would make that day better.
Mostly things I know to do, but don't remember to do. It was a nice reminder and was time efficient as I was listening to the audio-book in the car. I don't think it would radically change anyone's life, but there are a few good tips and the reader was pleasant enough to be enjoyable.
I skimmed this in an effort to help me determine a couple of things to change in the way I'm approaching my life. It's decent for that--- empathetically written, easy to glean helpful information--- actually challenged me in some areas more than I meant for it to.

Loved this book, I read it in audio book form. A lot of points have stuck with me and have really helped with my anxiety and perfectionist tendencies. Would definitely recommend!
Some useful tips and thought provoking statements. Probably would have been more effective had I read the book and not listened to it. I might give the hard copy a try.
This was one of worst books I have read lately. Find something else. I only read it because I was snowed in over the weekend!
Laura Gilfillan
This book was inspiring and thought-provoking. Worth a second listen some time.
Some useful tips in a short read; it's exactly what it needs to be.
I am reading this for a second time.

Some good tips for time/stress mgmt
