The Skinny on Time Management covers effective time management techniques in a small concise little package. The book is written with still frames, using a stick figure to represent the author as he provides tips on the best ways to manage time.

The book is a quick read and offers advice on determining whether or not you are making an effective use of your time. The book also provides guidance for changing your ways and becoming more conscious about how your time is spent.

If the readers make the suggested charts (as I did), they will be shocked at how the time in a day, week, month or year is really spent!

The Skinny on Time Management uses wit and humor to bring readers a new awareness about how their time is spent. The book provides simple tips  on defining goals, developing road maps to success and making actual changes. There are also several “reality checks” along the way, providing an insightful, accurate and interesting guide.

The most interesting concept for me was that all hours in the day are not alike – in terms of and in regards to determining productivity. Energy must be harnessed and matched to daily productivity time slots. This is a critical feature of becoming naturally more productive in a person’s daily life. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in a little self discovery regarding how to become more effective in general and how to manage time better in the future.
