So much potential

There are some great nuggets of information in this audiobook. However, most of the information could have been consolidated to 2 hours. The book is very repetitive and poorly organized. I wish I had the cliff notes so I would not have wasted 6 hours of my time. Lastly, I think part of the problem is the narrator. I found voice quit annoying.

This Narrator Nailed Dan Kennedy

I love the information in the book. But this narrator has to be the best one to do Dan's books. I can 'hear' Dan's voice through this narrator.

As far as the content, I am a believer.

Got me thinking differently

This was an extremely valuable book, I really enjoyed the perspectives and numerous examples. The voice could be a little grating at times however the content was so eye opening it is easy to tolerate. Great attention to detail and this book gives a lot of excellent advice. Thank you, I will definitely be listening again.

Required Reading for Every Entrepreneur

As a Dan Kennedy copywriting student for two decades, I am familiar with his direct style of communication. This is the one book of his I never read, but should have started with. It definitely enabled a paradigm shift in my consciousness and I started implementing his recommendations while reading the book and achieved my first goal (one that I never "had the time" to do.

One of the best time management books I've ever re

One of the best time management books I've ever read. Seriously. I didn't know how much I'd love this book because the cover threw me off a little, but with hundreds of books under my belt I've learned that you really can't judge a book by its cover. I'm glad I didn't. Mr. Kennedy was speaking my language the whole time. As a Productivity Coach I appreciated his raw, unfiltered approach and sassy delivery. Every point was so spot on and I feel like I have to read it again just to let it all soak in. Please read this book and reclaim control over your time, energy, resources, and money! Shout out to Mr. Rowat for narrating such a witty book. It takes real skill to be able to match the author's personality while narrating. Well done!

This book made me think about my time and how I spend it

This book made me think about my time and how I spent it I was able to get through it in under a week and during that week I took serious inventory of how time is spent and have made changes that I already feel the benefit from. These changes allowing me to get more done and more meaningful things done Will undoubtedly result in more income and success in the future. Thank you so much Dan Kennedy

Unlistenable

Couldn't finish due to the nausea inducing narration. Bloke sounds like he's dropped 3 tabs of acid and has convinced himself he's in a kids story book.

More important than ever

Read a second time. As someone who is already pretty organised with lists, knowing my priorities and linking those back to me goals, the biggest issue remains time vampires. People asking for 5 minutes to ask me something they don’t want to check for themselves, asking me to fix their messes, meetings with no clear agenda or plans and calls and emails where people the temptation is to prioritise other peoples todo/admin items rather than our own Income generating tasks, long term goals and other priorities.

Note that several multi million and billionaires highly recommend this book vs the reviews from others shunning this in favour of having a better todo list, such as David Allen’s GTD.

I’m all for a good list and executing things in the right order but if you can’t control the constant influx of distractions and use your own intelligence to replace “fax machine” with something that works for you then you aren’t really an entrepreneur - your are a conformist and merely doing a lot of things well that need not be done at all with at best 50% effectiveness after bombardment from constant distraction.

Do Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Warren Buffett or the President stop work each time they get an email, answer calls when no meeting has been scheduled…? I’m sure their shareholders and voters would prefer their focused on more important tasks and picked up other matters their staff determined genuinely required their attention at a time to suit them. A time when both parties could discuss the matter with a suitable time frame, no distractions and after being appropriately briefed on the situation.

Original review

———

I bought this book after it was recommended by several people in Tools of Titans.

For me the key takeaway of the book is that in order to ruthlessly achieve things you need to:
1) Focus ruthlessly on getting the most important things done
2) Ruthlessly stop all distractions, this means having a door closed policy, not answering the phone to unscheduled calls, not spending all day on email working on other people's priorities. Don't get Dan started on social media....

Intuitively we all know those distractions that constantly prevent us from getting anything done. You've got to switch them all off.

Yet I’ve learned you can’t actually manage time; you can only manage yourself and those around you.

For most people, these minutes don’t matter. But they can. In a sense, this is the penny argument. It’s only a penny. A lot of people won’t even pick one up if they drop it. But if you ask Warren Buffett if he pays attention to pennies, you’ll get a different answer. When you say to yourself, “It’s only ten minutes,” you miss the entire point of time. You either take it seriously or you don’t.

Think and Grow Rich, researched from 1917 to publication in 1937, which is still a strong seller today—almost entirely by word of mouth. It, Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged, and the Christian Bible are the three books most frequently referenced as life-altering works by top CEOs and entrepreneurs in surveys year after year.

The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon by Brad Stone

What am I going to implement after reading this book:

1) Pushing back on meetings without a clear purpose and agenda. Send me a summary in advance of what is required otherwise I'm not attending. True in all cases exceptions only where this would be career suicide.
2) Keep earphones on in the open plan office to both avoid getting involved in conversations and also make people think twice about interrupting my work
3) Turned off 99.9% of notifications on my phone. The only exceptions are health related apps encouraging me to track my food and water intakes and messages and calls from a small number of hand selected individuals
4) Deleted facebook app, use screen time to set time limits for many others making my e-mail processing a lot faster and more disciplined, moved the majority of apps to folders
5) Mainly now use the phone for audiobooks, kindle books, music, work timer, calendar and health
6) Track my progress to see how things change now I've implemented the above

A great recap of everything important to succeed

If you want to succeed in personal life and business you must focus. In this book Dan Kennedy remind us of every possible reason to focus and to avoid multi tasking. He's honestly referencing other authors and adding his value and his own point of view and unique considerations as well.

Worthy of listening several times!

The author, Dan Kennedy, is a powerhouse...

Dan Kennedy is a powerhouse of practical, easy to implement advice for any entrepreneur.

I wish I had this book at the beginning of my career.

Already, whilst listening to No B.S. Time Management for Entrepreneurs I have implemented three pieces of his advice and saved myself and hour and 20 minutes out of my day.

I'm actively looking at other time and energy suckers that distract me, and eliminating them from my life!

One piece of advice not covered in this book that I used to save time whilst going through the book was to listen to the book at 1.90 x the normal speed. I got through this pragmatic guide to productivity in less time.

Dan Kennedy is a treasure!

I'm off to implement...
