4.0 out of 5 stars good advice in neat small book., 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Getting Organized at Work: 24 Lessons to Set Goals, Establish Priorities, and Manage Your Time (McGraw-Hill Professional Education Series) (Paperback)
the book relates mainly to work but usefully gets you to keep a week long diary of your current activities. then, you are invited to note what activities you avoid and those you like, along with time spent. i did like the advice of not to work late as it does not make you more productive. the advice of avoiding 'chat' time or bonding time is ok but i think the books advice to avoid it as much as possible might make you unpopular if you followed it totally. good advice on considering 'high yield' tasks having high priority and having 2 'power hours', one on arrival at work and another at 12 noon. so, good advice on a potentially dull topic. Nice to hear that staying late at work is not good and if you want to do some vital work , it is better to go in early. Also, clear that having lunch at your desk is bad but does say avoid taking lunch with people who chat. I think being likeable does matter but i suppose most could reduce the time spent mixing casually with colleagues.

The book is very handy that you could bring it with you everyday. The 24 lessons are concise and direct to the point.

This is recommended to recent graduates and entry-level employees. This is also helpful to professionals who need "reminders".

If you have little time to read and want to select just one book on organizing at work, this is a very good choice that will probably bring you quick benefit. After reading this small but concise book, you will also be better prepared to identify areas of improvement and select further reading, eg, e-mailing, time management, etc.
