Effective Time Management: Using Microsoft Outlook to Organize Your Work and Personal Life
Effective Time Management: Using Microsoft Outlook to Organize Your Work and Personal Life
by Lothar Seiwert
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.80

3.0 out of 5 stars You have to need it to really want it., 26 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are completely new to time management, have an understanding of computer-speak and Outlook is your e-organiser of choice or imposition then this book is likely to be very helpful.

I understand computer speak but some of the paragraphs defeat me, they are so technically written that even after several re-reads I still haven't understood EITHER what they are proposing I do OR the point in doing it. Occasionally I see the point but don't follow their 'how', and sometimes I understand the 'how' but don't see the point or I already know a better way of doing it.

As ever, I am dismayed that they have used Stephen Covey ideas and renamed them - roles have become 7 hats (why?!), and the Big Rocks concept has become the Keiler System - to no conceivable end. They credit Dr Covey with the ideas but for some reason have to rename them?

That is not to say that there aren't some nuggets of information that I have found useful, but my advice is that unless you need to know how to use Outlook to manage time because Outlook is your only tool or has been imposed upon you, then treat this as an amusing illustration of what else is possible in time management.

But by TimePower (Hobbs) or First Things First (Covey/Merrill) to understand the time management principles that you can then apply with this book.

Not a Filofax, judging by the lack of branding.

Written to celebrate HM Queen's 80th Birthday, it is a typically well written Batt song.

Beautiful, simple, melodic. Might be worth seeing the film first, just to see what the music is about.


The Nature of Leadership
The Nature of Leadership

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty picture book with Covey insights, but only for the fans., 22 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Covey fabs will love it - there're a few tales and insights explained differently in this picture book, but it may not be the right cup of tea for those new to Covey writings.

Way to abuse the cover design of the genuine book Mastery by Robert Greene!! If you had his permission best say so.


Pain Is Inevitable, Misery Is Optional
Pain Is Inevitable, Misery Is Optional
by Hyrum W. Smith
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth a look, 18 Sep 2014
An enjoyable but religious book on misery being a disposable option even when pain is present. Readers of Stephen Covey and Hyrum Smith will enjoy it but if you don't like religious references you best avoid. I enjoyed it because I can 'see around' the references and see the message rather than the manner in which it is put. Unfortunately many people see the two as inextricably linked (while not asking JK Rowling what her beliefs are when deciding whether or not to read Barry Trotter books).

The Only Way to Win: How Building Character Helps You Achieve More and Find Greater Fulfillment in Business and Life
by Jim Loehr
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read, unarguable philosophy., 18 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very extensive and well written reminder that principles apply and those who think otherwise should humbly start practicing them instead of being egotistic. Very much about identifying personal values and a sense of mission/purpose, the kind of thing we should all consider but tend to leave until our 40s!
