Should I spend money on this book?
- I checked this book out from a library.
- I did not recognize new, or innovative material, or I would have purchased it.
- I did take about 5 pages worth of notes I believe can be condensed into less pages.
- This book is common sense not commonly practiced.
- If you don’t live the book, the book is worthless
Should I read this book?
- Not if you have a results-driven personality or have limited time
- The book is about 300 pages of common-sense practices collated in an uncommon manner citing time management and practices conducive to productive focused outcomes.
- I was frustrated having to weed out the nuggets of gold that could be reduced down to 5-10 pages that I could model and put into practice.
- I do recommend skimming the book and highlighting areas of interest.
- If able, assign an employee to distill the book observations tailored to your business and personal interests.
- The book is over 300 pages and can theoretically be concentrated to 10 pages…. Maybe even less.
