This past week, I read The Seven Minute Difference: Small Steps to Big Changes by Allyson Lewis. This book was a great read! I opened the book expecting it to be a chore to read, but ended up reading half of the book the first night. With this book, I have a plan started of how to change my life with what Allyson calls “micro-actions.” With each micro-action, Allyson shows readers how to change their lives with things that only take a few minutes per day.
Also with this book, I received The 7 Min

The Seven Minute Difference does have some valid suggestions on how to use your time wisely. The beginning of the book had specific examples and a good explanation on how she came up with the idea.

The second half of the book dragged, however, as the author seemed to get bogged down into too many details about her own life and meaningfulness (meaningfulosity?).

Still, read the first half, implement the 7-minute theory, an

She offers helpful advice here but there's not a whole lot of earth shattering concepts if you have read many business books. Define your mission in life. Make changes. Prioritize, organize and simplify. Still, I plan to try several of her worksheets, which are available online.

Business, time-management book. Some good information about taking microactions such as writing a mission statement, planning the day before the top priorities for the next day, creating repeatable processes or systems.
