His best selling book “15 Secrets Successful People Know about Time Management” is a read I highly recommend. The book is based on a series of interviews Kevin did with billionaires, Olympic athletes, entrepreneurs and straight A students.
In it he does dismiss your classic to do list as a myth for productivity.
Kevin also talks about how to effectively use your calendar as a real time management tool – his rationale and approach is both refreshing and practical.
The question I love is – does your calendar reflect your priorities, or are you busy doing “stuff”? I found that challenging!!
He has a great section on procrastination – he believes that it is nothing to do with laziness and he interestingly suggests that “our future self is the enemy of our best self” – listen in to hear his philosophy. Well worth hearing, I can promise you.
Kevin also talks abut leaving the office at 5.00pm – without any guilt.
He quotes Andy Groves, from Intel, who said: “I am never done” – so why think if you stay late, you will get it all done?
He shares Richard Branson’s most effective personal productivity tool – a small notebook! Seriously!!
