I think it’s safe to say that many of us, myself included, often feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day for us to accomplish all we want, or need, to get done. We might think that we’re managing just fine until one day, we find ourselves against a seemingly insurmountable to-do list. Sound familiar? In that case, this book,
The Get Productive Grid
by Magdalena Bak-Maier, may just well be a God-send.
As a third year degree student with a dissertation due for completion in under a month, I am most certainly one of those people who still struggles with time management and organisation, and so this book, from the moment I started reading it, gave me ideas and motivation to better handle it all.
I had often found myself only semi-committed to getting certain tasks or assignments done, but, working my way through these pages, I discovered numerous ways in which I could motivate myself to work harder, therefore freeing up more time for other things such as a treat of a night out with friends.
By asking readers to look at all aspects of their lives, not just the work and family sides, The Get Productive Grid offers a real in-depth look at how so many of us while away time we could be using far more valuably. Little exercises throughout the book ask that you look at your daily activities, together with your hopes, dreams and ambitions and offers you tips and advice to work towards and fulfil them with as full a heart and as confident a mind as possible.
I finished off this book in a day although I am most likely to come back to it time and time again as more challenges and struggles find their way into my life. I have no doubt that this book won’t be for everyone, but for those looking to find ways of re-evaluating the important things in their lives, and how better to manage the 24 hours given to us each day, it will, as it did for me, prove to be hugely beneficial.
I’m not saying that this book will solve 100% of a person’s issues relating to time management and making the most of every day, but it’s certainly a great place to start.
The Get Productive Grid is available now on Amazon and from all good bookshops.
