Time Management: Reading List

Today I had the joy of delivering some training on Time Management. I started simply buy asking if people liked having their hard earned money wasted. All unanimously agreed that they hated having their money wasted.

So why do you allow anyone to waste your time? when time is much more valuable then money. 

Establishing the why, is always the best buy in for any lessons or learning.

Here's the copy of the reading list I distributed at the end of the training. Enjoy.

Effective Time Management Further Reading List

In order of priority

Why? AWESOME book on a principle based personal development. No tips and tricks, real solutions to real problems.

2 - The 4-Hour Work Week: Escape the 9-5, Live Anywhere and Join the New Rich by Timothy Ferriss (2011)

Why? Great advice and approach to stacking tasks. This man effectively runs a business and he only checks and answers his email once a week.

3 - Getting Things Done: How to Achieve Stress-free Productivity by David Allen (2002)

Why? A good methodology on how to prioritise tasks, and reviewing and archiving information along with planning individual projects.


4 - 80/20 Principle: The Secret of Achieving More with Less by Richard Koch (2007)

Why? The fact that 80 per cent of results flow from 20 per cent of causes - is the one true principle of highly effective people and organisations.

Fartherhood, kind of a big deal

Mid June we were blessed with a healthy 3kg baby girl. We had already decided that we shall name her Khadijah. This was not set in stone, as I didn't want to commit to a name and then feel while holding her she didn't feel like a Khadijah. But she most certainly did.
Blogging has taken a very low priority in the past months. But some photos I find to awesome not to share.
I also wanted to help a a less fortunate child in the world in some positive way. So I starte a fund raising page. The target is to raise at least enough money to look after an orphan for at least a year. It such a small thing I'm almost embarrassed I'm not doing more.
In immediate action, there is some power of momentum.
