2 years after I read this and I'm still remembering bits of it and using some of the techniques or having some of its effects in my life.
The planner was helpful also. The planner is geared toward business, particularly sales types or people who make a lot of phone calls or meetings per day. But, as a stay-at-home mom and homemaker, I feel like the format of the planner gives us a great jumping off point to make our own planner. Tracking water, sleep and other health actions. Doing

Like finally. Took so long because, well, it's a self-help cum self-development book, on time management, so yeah, you get what I mean.

Honestly? I just found this really dull. I think the problem is that it reads like a business productivity seminar. And I am just not a businessy person.

That said, I did really like the exercise about values right at the beginning.
Seven minutes is about all the average person can focus or it's the average length of time a person has before they are interrupted.

For a flighty unfocused person like me, it actually gave me a boost to think I should/could use the moments I have to keep moving forward.
