i found this book at one of my previous jobs and finally had a chance to read it. i consider myself a pretty organized person, but figured that i could get a few tips from this book.

It also lets you know that if "regular" Time management tools cause anxiety, it is all right to leave them behind.

I read this book many years ago. I have done many sessions on time management but this book is a good read and is easy to read. It seems like a story book. I like the lucidity with which the author presents time management issues.
