This book only took about 20 minutes to read, and packed a lot into its pages. Drawing on my ‘Beyond Chocolate’ “be your own guru” skills, a lot of them I thought, ah yes, I should try that, or, hmmm, not sure if that would work, but I’d be prepared to give it a go. Also interested to see how many of those habits I appear to have embedding in my life over the past year too. A lot of it’s about focus, spending your time well, managing procrastination, etc. I like this quote, which is the aim of it all:
“Rule: It is the QUALITY of time at work that counts and the QUANTITY of time at home that matters.”
