I was fortunate enough to be a “test reader” on a wonderful, new book titled, 168 Hours – You Have More Time Than You Think by Laura Vanderkam. I am a voracious, but picky reader and in order for me to spend time reading something, it better be worth it. This book was worth every minute. It is well-organized, and smartly written with practical tips and tools to make the most of the time you have.
A common complaint of many people, especially parents (whether they work outside the home or not) is, “I wish I had time to do_____.” Laura’s thesis is you can fit everything in and still have time to sleep 8 hours per night. That’s right, you can work, play, sleep, volunteer, spend time with your family, learn a new language, etc. in the 168 hours you have each week. You just need to stop spending time on unproductive, unimportant tasks.
Who wouldn’t want more time in their day? Released May 27, 2010 and available on Amazon.com, at Barnes & Noble, Borders, and chapters.indigo.ca, 168 Hours is great for recent graduates, parents, those starting a new job or recently promoted to a position of greater scope, and really anyone who feels lacking in time.
