Your desk is messy. Boxes are piled up around your house from the holidays. Your inbox is flooded with unanswered messages. Your voicemail is full. Not only that, but you also need to do the laundry, do the dishes, plan your next meal, and make sure the rest of your home is in order after the holidays. How do you stay on top of it all without getting in over your head?
All of us are adjusting to the overlap with our work and home lives, and to say the least it can get overwhelming. If you’re looking for a jump-start on your productivity and time management, then I would recommend reading The Power to Get Things Done by Steve Levinson and Chris Cooper. It will get you back up on your feet and prompt you to take on your to-do list, one item at a time.
Here is the summary on Amazon:
“Whether you run your own business or work for someone else, you’ve probably got a lot on your plate. Along with the portion of your work that you truly feel like doing comes a generous helping of things you’d rather not do.
“As consultants, Steve Levinson and Chris Cooper have seen countless clients struggle—and often fail—to do the many success-producing things they know they should do but don’t feel like doing.
“The Power to Get Things Done will teach you how to consistently turn your good intentions into action so that you can be as successful as possible in the work you do.
“Don't feel like filing those pesky tax forms or making the follow-up calls you've been putting off? The Power to Get Things Done will show you how to get yourself--and keep yourself--in gear.
“Levinson and Cooper offer you a host of practical solutions, including:
• The smart way to think about and treat your own good intentions
