The Lazy Winner is for all those who simply want to do more with less effort and succeed in their working and personal lives without rushing around like headless chickens or putting in 100 hour weeks. We are all too good to put our careers and work—life balance at risk by working too hard! The Lazy Winner builds on the concept of ‘productive laziness’, developed in Peter Taylor’s bestselling The Lazy Project Manager, which encourages people to apply more thought before leaping in to action and throwing effort at a problem or task. With better planning readers can ensure that they are Lazy Winners and achieve success in what they do at work and in life—more impressive results with the minimum of effort.
