More Time for You - A Book Review

Guest Author - Dianne Walker

Do any of these phrases sound familiar?

“I wish there were more hours in the day.”
“I wish I had said no to that project.”
“Where DID today go?”

If you are like millions of others, it always seems like the day never has enough hours. Unfortunately, no matter how you organize it, change it or rearrange it, there are only going to 24 hours in a day and 168 hours in a week. So what are you going to do? Perhaps it’s not just about organizing. Perhaps you need to take a step back and learn HOW to organize.

More Time for You - A Powerful System to Organize Your Work and Get Things Done by Rosemary Tator and Alesia Latson help you take your fast paced world and organize it in such a way that is not only efficient, but also allows you to enjoy life. You learn to cancel the negative and filling it with positive activities.

The book is divided into three major sections:

"So Much to Do" is the first major section. The first chapter shares the tale of Elizabeth, the perfect wife, mother and career woman. How many of you can identify with Elizabeth? The more you do, the more you neglect yourself? One line in Elizabeth’s tale sums it up, “Elizabeth moves so quickly that she creates a wake of clutter behind her.” We become inundated with so many tasks and activities, we essentially become paralyzed. Our lives come to a virtual stand still.

Another great facet of this book is it has finally moved self-help into the 21st century. E-mails, social networking and other technology are all part of the current "great" procrastinators addressed in the book.

Part 2 of the book focuses on “Knowing What You Want.” For example, what is the difference between creating a resolution versus creating a vision of an accomplishment? Tator and Latson identifies a new thought process for envisioning where you want to be in the future. By creating these “accomplishments” rather than “goals” you will "tap into the power of visualization”. Visualizing what you want and where you want to be as an "accomplishment" is a powerful concept.

The bulk of the book, part 3, is devoted to finding more time for you. After all, that is what most people envision when they consider a time management book. Tator and Latson deliver.

Consider the concept of a “capture tool.” A capture tool will help you keep all of your thoughts, to-do’s, roaming thoughts and feelings all in one place. The authors provide definition and instruction on using a capture tool. Exercises and activities are contained throughout the book to help practice the concepts discussed.

Tator and Latson take your world, shake it and help you to re-organize it to create the life you want to live. While no single book can perform miracles, More Time for You, helps to create a blue print from which to start.
