Good but complicates things a bit,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to be a Productivity Ninja: Worry Less, Achieve More and Love What You Do (Kindle Edition)
I bought this when it was on Deal of the Day, so did not pay full price for it.
There’s definitely some useful information in this book. It also makes you feel very motivated; I came across some material I knew about, and some methods which I had considered before and rejected, and it made me realise they were methods worth implementing.
It’s also really good to hear that single-tasking gets things done faster and often more effectively. I am in a response based job where I wouldn’t be allowed to turn the email off at any point, but I’ve become much better at ignoring the stuff that doesn’t require an immediate response.
I would say that this book is probably aimed at people who are dealing with quite complicated flows of work, because some of the models seem to be overcomplicating things rather than simplifying them.
A lot of bosses could benefit from reading this book. A lot of people have incredibly poor working habits because working culture encourages that. I got so much more done after reading this book and implementing some of the methods.
The book could be substantially cut down; the information is good but the writing style explains the same thing several times and goes into a lot of detail describing problems we already know we have!
