“Elizabeth Saunders has distilled wisdom garnered from years of coaching clients into this book. Most of us reading time management books are looking for systems, and she has some very good ones, combined with excellent tips and tricks on how to go about implementing them. But her biggest insight is really more holistic. Simply put, it is the converse of the Golden Rule: do unto yourself as you would do unto others. Frequently we beat ourselves up for failure to live to outrageous demands and unrealistic expectations that we would never foist upon others. If instead we nurture ourselves and treat ourselves with kindness, we will not only achieve more, but revel in our work. An excellent read with a refreshing perspective.” ~Bob
“In my early professional career, I attended quite a few time management courses. After reading Elizabeth’s book, I discovered that I was not the time management guru that I thought I was. Elizabeth goes beyond just giving a step-by-step approach to managing your time. She provides an in-depth insight to certain behaviors that may hinder your ability to effectively manage your time. I really love this book, because you can start to apply Elizabeth’s time management skills rather quickly.” ~Lindsey
“Elizabeth takes the topic of time management out of the office and into real life! This book challenged me to sit down and really think about what is most important in my life and how to invest my time in what is important to me. The strategies are well thought out and the worksheets she suggests using are incredibly powerful. For the first time in my life, I feel like I can dig myself out of this constant feeling of being overwhelmed. This book is indeed a beacon in the dark for me.” ~Tree0252
