Cottrell covers the basics of how to use your time wisely in an average working day. From the minute you get up to heading back home, he provides tips in order to eliminate waste. He touches on the use of computers, email, phone calls, and paper. The latter helped me personally because I am a paper pack rat. At the moment, my home office is pretty cluttered. Brian Tracy states, “Take a good look at your desk and your office. Ask yourself, ‘What kind of person works in an environment like that?’ The cleaner and neater your work environment, the more positive, productive and confident you feel.”
Four chapters are given over to planning, starting, running, and ending a meeting. The suggestions will remove frustration and energize board members.
Authur Brisbane concludes, “Among the aimless you often hear talk about ‘killing time.’ People who are constantly killing time are really killing their own chances in life. Those who are destined to become successful are those who make time and use it wisely.”
