Time—got any? The latest volume in our popular self-help series, Learn to Manage Your Time features sound advice for taking control of the calendar, all in an accessible, richly illustrated format. Stress management expert Lucy MacDonald makes planning, organization, and self-discipline possible for just about anyone with warm, encouraging text and simple step-by-step exercises. First she questions the emotions behind how we spend our time—or waste it—and why we feel as though we never have enough. The answers are surprising, and help is at hand. Readers will tackle tough problems head on, whether it's taking control of email and paperwork, or mastering the all-important skill of just saying "no." Innovative suggestions to fight procrastination, "hurry sickness," and perfectionism get to the heart of why we don't have as much time as we'd like. Sections focused on parenting, the office, and unstructured time offer customized solutions. Packed with smart tips that can be put to immediate use, Learn to Manage Your Time is a time management tool that really works.
