More About the Author

Grace Marshall is a life and business coach, NLP practitioner, DISC trainer and mum to two young children. She is passionate about helping busy business owners make the most of their time and their talents, and do life and business on their own terms.

She loves to encourage and equip entrepreneurs to design, create, and grow a business that works for them and their family, rather than the other way around - and still have time for the other important things in life, like friendship, fun, and rest!

Grace will be the first to admit she's not a naturally organized person. She doesn't believe there is such a thing as "perfect work/life balance" or in trying to "find more time." Instead, she's learned how to get stuff done in a way that works with her personality, lifestyle, and commitments. She now specializes in helping others tap into their unique strengths and natural working style with her personalized approach to productivity.

She lives in Stafford - somewhere in the middle of the U.K. - with her husband and their two children, where they are very much involved in a lively local church community. When she's not working (and sometimes when she is), you'll probably find her surrounded by people, books, music, or food - possibly even all at once.

I loved Grace Marshall's book. It is so easy to read and makes a lot of sense. I am very organised but this took my organisation to another level. My business I feel has become more streamlined after using her ideas and tips. I will certainly be recommending it to friends and business colleagues that battle with focussing on one job at a time and feel like they are running around like headless chickens.

Got home from work at 4:30pm today, I came in and spent around half an hour with Ollie doing his homework, and then thought to myself "what shall I do next?" I decided to open the two parcels that the postman delivered for me today which were quite obviously books. I opened each one, took a photo of each and tweeted the photo with a message. I then spent a bit of time sending a few random tweets and answering some others. After making a cup of coffee, I decided to check Facebook on my phone and I put a chicken in the oven for this evening's dinner. I did what I call "fannying about" on Facebook and Twitter for a while for no particular reason apart from being nosy to see what my friends had been up to.

I put Ollie's dinner in the oven and responded to a few more tweets as my phone had dinged a few times. Looking at the two books that I'd had delivered that day, and thinking about the pile of books I have next to my bedside table, my next tweet said I wish I could find more time to read!

At this point it was now 6.30pm and I realised that I had just spent nearly two hours "fannying about".

I remembered Grace Marshall's book "21 ways to manage the stuff that sucks up your time" and decided it really was the right time for me to read it and take note!

Chapter 1 was called Batch Your Bits. One of the things it suggested was to set up an automatic reply in your work email setting expectations for your clients and contacts. Something like: "Thank you for your email. I read and respond to all emails every afternoon between three and four. You'll hear back from me then." What a great idea!

I just finished reading a terrific little book called g21 Ways to Manage the Stuff That Sucks up Your Timeh, by Grace Marshall.

For those of you who arenft familiar with Grace and her work, she is a life and business coach, and she has two young children. She is also a NLP practitioner and a DISC trainer. She is passionate about helping business owners make the most of their business time and their talents, and do life and business on their own terms.

This book is a quick easy read, but it is full of great tips. Some of them you are probably already doing. But if youfre like me, there are a few more you really should be doing. You will find this book to be very helpful especially if you are not naturally organized. And if you already consider yourself to be an organized person, implementing just a few of these tips will only make you better.

This book is for anyone that wants to:
¡Get more done in the time they have without working longer.
¡Make money, grow your business and still have time for your family
¡Find gme timeh for doing whatfs important to you without feeling guilty.
¡Learn tools and techniques for getting more organized so that you look forward to getting up and going to work each day and you finish each day with a feeling of satisfaction.

This is a really useful little book packed with tips, advice and clearly laid out instructions on how to focus and achieve your goals on a daily basis, all well laid out in 21 bite-sized chapters. I like it because the writer has first-hand experience of setting up and running a business and being a busy mum at the same time. She understands how overwhelming the small stuff can be, and she simply explains how to 'work smarter not harder', how to take charge and form good habits that will produce those desired results that we all want from our day. It's all very practical, I was surprised how encouraged and inspired I felt after reading a few chapters! Plus, she goes deeper getting you to think about what energizes you, what drains you and how to manage your workload accordingly so you make the most of your talents and get more satisfaction out of your working day. So whether you're a sole trader or a busy manager in a large company this book is a useful support, it will increase your organisational skills and productivity even if you applied just one or two of the principles. Great little present for someone, too.

Grace writes with pith and knowingness. The challenge is for people to put her simple, incredibly effective insights and tips to work deliberately -- when they do they'll be self reinforcing as the results will be plain to see. One for all newly self-employed people amongst others.

Quite simply the best £3.97 I have spent in years. This book is simple, concise, to the point and absolutely jam packed with useful nuggets. Yes, a lot of it is common sense and on reading it you think 'of course I should do that' but if you weren't doing it before, it's a helpful nudge (kick up the backside!) in the right direction.

I am the queen of 'shiny object syndrome' and Grace's idea of a tangent log is just genius..... I now have my little tangent log notebook in my bag at all times to capture those great ideas that previously I would have been desperate to get started with that would completely distract me from getting the current job done.

Thanks Grace - now for your next book, how about 21 ways to get housework done without anybody realising they are doing it?!
