Increasingly for business people, managing a myriad of job and home-related activities has become an all-consuming chore. We are so stressed that our relationships and job performance suffer. Why? Because we organize our time and our lives poorly: We spend five years of our lives waiting in lines, three years in meetings, and two years playing telephone tag. We get interrupted 73 times per day, interfering with our productivity, and take an hour of work home every night, interfering with our family time.

This book presents 151 quick and easy ways to meet these challenges in our daily lives. Each idea comes from the real world experiences of people like you - people who are experimenting with, examining, and discovering unique solutions to the time problems all of us face every day. Select those ideas that fit your particular circumstance and try them out! Here are a few:

Start Your Day the Night Before
Undercommit and Overdeliver
Organize Your Workspace
Block Contingency Time Every Day
Use Voice Mail as a Call Screener
Fight SPAM with an E-mail Blocker

Do more in less time, take control of your schedule, and create a new balance between your work and your family life. You'll be surprised at how easy it is to take charge of your time and increase your quality of life.
