3.0 out of 5 stars Manage Your Time 17 May 2009
A nice pocket size book, covering the key points. Some good tips, but quite an old book, so there's nothing in there about managing emails and in boxes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get Accomplished Managing Time 10 Dec 2003
By Ilaxi S. Patel - Published on
How often we hear guys shrugging off casually: 'ugh, time is short, we're busy' I think, we all have 24 hours in a day, 7 days a week, yielding 168 hours per week. Take away the sleep hours and hours engaged in fetching results we desire! Hence, its wise to work `smarter' than work `harder' and this requires efficient `Time Management' Walt Whitman, the poet, said it best, "The most powerful time is when we are alone, thinking about what we are to do." Daily Planning helps us to focus on what is really crucial and important in our day to come and permits us to identify time to use wasted hours more productively. This has been my experience but when I read this book of Tim, it sure is more to Accomplish 'Managing Time' with his neat tips under various categories like :
1. Understanding Time - Changing Attitude
2. Analyzing use of time - Keeping Time logs,
3. Assessing ability - A quick Quiz
4. Planning for success - Analyzing goals, work, prioritizing
5. Using Time Planners
6. Getting Organized
7. Phone Calls - Managing calls
8. Reading & writing - Dos n Dont's
9. Technology skills
10.Meetings & Travel tips
This and more, the Book is thorough self training and changing Attitude. I have all time in the world to read, write, web design, promote, market, handle admin work, attend meetings, run kids class, meet friends, go partying,listen n play music, cook and what not - all coz of Time planning and planning time with 7 days a week. This book has cool tips of dos n don'ts, analyzing quiz, charts and very good presentation and once you shrugg off the wry look to wring for an extra half hour, think of the wonders a human brain can do - a cool book for every student, business guy, tech buffs and especially those bubbly MBAs who seem to lack time! A great Pick - Get Self Trained, Get More Accomplished with your Time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short book of Time Management Tips 31 July 2011
By Alain B. Burrese - Published on
"Manage Your Time" by Tim Hindle is part of the DK Essential Managers series. These books are short, concise, and contain good general information on their subjects. This little book provides clear information on managing your time with plenty of illustrations, sidebars, tips, and checklists to help the reader analyze and resolve time problems.

The small book is only 71 pages long including the two-page index, so it does not go into any of the topics in depth, but it does provide plenty of useful information. The strategies and tips are relevant to many situations, and even though some chapters are a bit dated, such as those that discuss technology, they still provide good strategies that can be updated with newer technologies and resources.

There are four main parts after the Introduction: Understanding Time, Planning for Success, Making Instant Changes, and Managing the Time of Others. These four parts have the following topics under them: 1) analyzing time, analyzing use of time, assessing your ability; 2) analyzing your goals, working out priorities, assessing work patterns, using time planners, thinking positively; 3) clearing your office, filing paperwork, avoiding interruptions, filtering information, working with others, making phone calls, taking phone calls, reading and writing, using technology, holding meetings, traveling for work, scheduling time off; 4) communicating well, delegating effectively, managing colleagues, and managing your manager.

This book is not the be-all-and-end-all of time management texts. But it is a simple and quick read that provides some good time management tips that will help readers make better use of their time and be more productive. It is worth a quick read, even if just for one or two of the strategies and tips it provides.

5.0 out of 5 stars APA: The Easy Way! 24 Mar 2009
By Theology guy - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book gets to the point. It has four relevant subjects with chapters under each subject that clearly explain the content. Points are made in each chapter which reveal the specifics needed to accomplish the purpose of the book. I have had a long term weakness with time management. The book has inspired and motivated me to manage my time better.
