Learn how to design your day and be more productive

design-dayWith so many self-help and time management books available, there isn’t too much more to say.  The only way to get a new point across is to create a new method.  In “Design Your Day”, Claire Diaz-Ortiz introduces the do less method which is simple, efficient and timely.  She helps you decide the right goals, create workable strategies and harness time effectively and efficiently.  She also helps you plan your day with purpose.

I was right there with her until part two.  If you are self-employed or have a job where you can plan your own hours and/or work day, you will definitely benefit from the second part of the book.  If, however, you have a job where you depend on others to give you work assignments or are in a job where your hours are set, part two will not be very helpful unless you have a variety of at-home projects.

This is not another time-management book.  “Design Your Day” is short but contains valuable steps to help you organize your day and be more productive.  This is more about organization than time management although organizing your time is a way to manage it.  It is not simply do this and don’t do that.  It is more sitting down and organizing your life through brainstorming and setting goals.
