I picked up this book because…who doesn’t want to better manage their day to day routine, find better focus and sharpen their creative mind? Ha. This is a typical book for this type of book. It has a lot of good points about how to regain focus and create time to be creative. It even mentions another of my favorite books – “The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron. It talks about the Morning Pages which is something that I ran across years ago in “The Artist’s Way.” It was a brilliant idea then and still is a great idea to get the creative mind going. I am thankful for the reminder. The author of this book also exposes the myth of multi tasking and elaborates that multi tasking is really not possible. You can multi task by walking or driving and listening to music at the same time, but unless it is something along that line, you are really not multi tasking. What are you actually doing is chopping small pieces of your time up and giving it to several things at once. Before entering into trying to multi task always take a moment to look and see if it would be better and more efficient to do one thing, do it well, complete it and move on. Good point. I recommend this book for the insights it offers.
