My entrepreneur friends: If you have trouble keeping up with your email, phone calls, snail mail and any other item or person that takes time out of your day and challenges your productivity I encourage you to read this book. I’m not talking about the people you want to engage with or things you want to do, I’m talking about the time suckers.
I know for me, I get 100’s of emails a day and piles of snail mail every week. Sometimes, I just cannot keep up.
Well, my coach recommended Dan Kennedy’s No B.S. Time Management for Entrepreneurs. I’d heard of the no B.S. series but I had never ventured that direction until it was highly recommended to me. So, I downloaded it onto my Kindle and set off for the Mexican Riviera for some down time. I did a bunch of reading and this was a much needed book at just the right time.
Dan’s style just like the title is straight up, no BS. If you are thin skinned and not open minded, then this book is not for you. I repeat, then it is NOT for you. I love the concepts he presents and with anything, I’ll take what I like and adjust for my style from there. Plus, I’m not at Dan Kennedy’s level – yet!
But in order to take my game up a notch I know I need to take better control of my time. Otherwise, I am going to risk burning out sooner than later.
Dan gives tips and techniques for dealing with topics like:
– Emails, phone calls, and electronic means of communication (How to manage your time reading and sorting)
– People who are time suckers (How to help others while not taking too much time)
– How to use travel time effectively (Little tips to get through the airport and do better hotel work)
-How to schedule your appointments more effectively (how to structure your calendar better)
I want to encourage you to check this book out if you have Time Management Challenges.
Remember – This is NO B.S. so prepare yourself and go into the reading open minded.
