Cool-Time: A Hands-On Plan for Managing Work and Balancing Time
In the real world of interruptions, e-mail, and time pressure, few people are able to organize their work in isolation from everything else. In fact, effective time management is more about human relationships and expectations than it is about making lists. Cool-Time is a complete approach to managing time and defending it from the endless demands and expectations of others in the workplace, and in work from home scenarios.
It contains practical, personal techniques that will help you apply your new skills to real-world situations: holding time-effective meetings, dealing with distractions, learning to focus, coping with unrealistic workloads, planning for the unexpected, negotiating with your manager over conflicting tasks, and using technology effectively.
It includes suggestions on non-work activities including healthy sleep, which make this a complete approach to managing time and balancing life.
