good, if basic

This is a good intro to tone management. If you've never looked into the topic before this is a good place to start. it gives you a bird's eye view of the topic. it's very straightforward, doesn't waste your time with clever stories or wordplay, conversely it doesn't intrigue you with a good story, or use it's words to show you how your life could be with good time management. It's good, it's basic, if you need basic if say buy this book.

Excellent read on time management and organization

Definitely a great book with lots of insight. I found the book requires some effort and experimentation to really. The author takes a different & complete realistic approach to time management, adding a necessary step that so many other books in its category miss, making it much easier to get a handle on managing your time.

This is a life-saving book.


When things aren’t going smoothly, you just need someone on the outside to have a look in and give you permission to do it differently. This is what the author does in the book. She completely understands what it means to be successful in business and have meaningful time with your family. She’s had her own time management issues, she’s solved them and I got the benefit of her experience.

Improving Productivity Habits and Focus etc.

Majestic Mindset is just one of the empowering, life-affirming ideas in this book. As well as being a real pleasure to read (the author's warmth is palpable as you turn the pages),this book is packed with practical hints and tips. More than the run of the mill time management or mompreneur books, this book has the added dimensions of actually being written by a mum who has developed and succeeded in creating a business that is right for her and her family. The book challenges you to answer some difficult questions - a necessary part of preparing yourself mentally for creating a successful business.

Great strategies.

Wish it had a more broader approach/strategy, it has various tactics but needs more strategical conversation on how to plan.

well put the already known principles together

The book well highlights the things must be done to improve productivity. It didn't give me much new info but it was good to hear the already known infos collected and organized in one, fairly short book. It was repetative sometime but not too much.

Extremely effective.

Collage is a crucial time in anyone's life and that is why we should optimize this time to get the best results we can. Time management is crucial but your diet and nutrition also plays a very important part. Great tips here on how to do that and also on how to approach exams to get the best grade you can. This book helps you understand how important it is to have balance in your life. I use strategies found in this book to help unclog the hold ups in my daily flow. I recommend this book even if you are not a student. I have learned a lot of things about time management and how to make things fast, effective and more accurate. I always do the easy things first and leave the hard ones for later, but this book proved it to be a bad habit

A truly unique and wonderful story.

Without giving away any details this book was amazing. I really enjoyed it. It was a little slow to start but I couldn't put it down after the first quarter of the book. It's a book that I was sad to see end. A great read! Well done...loved the story. His style is refreshing and skillful. I felt as though these people were a family just like mine.I loved the relationships he built with the former owners. and There is a delightful discussion at the dinner table with a conservative mother and the liberal grown children. It was intelligent, real and touching at the same time. I would definitely recommend the book.

This is a life-saving book.

This book changed the way I approach my job as a sysadmin, and my boss took notice and purchased a copy for the office to pass around and read. It helped me take control of the factors in my job that were causing me to lose focus and avoid major projects.It doesn't just cover what you should be doing to make yourself more efficient, but how you can also manage your boss and coworkers so that they understand your workload and get off your back. This book sits on my desk and I recommend it to anyone having trouble managing tasks. I usually think of self help books as touchy-feely nonsense read by weak-minded individuals who can't think for themselves. This is still my opinion and that probably won't change.

Solid book.

I attended an eponymous presentation given by the author. Tom is a good presenter and a good writer and the sort of smart-but-easy-going guy you would want to work with. The whole idea of "time management" is especially important for systems administrators, who tend to juggle a lot of things at once while also handling user interruptions, and reporting to diffuse layers of management.
I myself am still experimenting with various daily regimens and have yet to find a system that works really well for me

exellent book.

One of the few books that have kept its value over the years in more than just face value. If you live, breath, sleep and eat IT this is a MUST read book. I was given this book by one of my bosses many years ago and it helped me in so many ways I now give a copy to each of my employees when they are hired. The book is plenty with common sense and wisdom. Definitely useful. I'm going to buy the print version for our office.

Case Study on time management

This book changed the way I approach my job as a sysadmin, and my boss took notice and purchased a copy for the office to pass around and read. It helped me take control of the factors in my job that were causing me to lose focus and avoid major projects, some (like automation, also discussed in the book) that would make my job easier if I could just sit down and put four straight hours into them.
This book has invaluable tips, tricks and hints, for sys admins, or anyone of a geek flavor, or just anyone comfortable using technology to improve their lives. I learned so much to streamline so many of the things I do. This book changed my life, in a very good way.

Short and Sweet

This book was short, would be best if it came with written material to go with it as it has lots of exercises in it that you can't do whilst listening on the go.
