This book was lent to me by one of my colleagues at work. The book is heavy on research into the perfect timing of completing tasks. Some of it was a little dry, but overall it had some great nuggets.
- There are tips about combatting a mid-life slump. These include things like writing a letter of self-compassion to yourself, prioritizing your goals, and waiting. Yes, sometimes waiting can be the best course of action. There have been a few times in my life where inaction was actually beneficial in the long run.
- The book talked about the importance of timing different tasks. I won’t go into it too much here. I will say that I think we all have our own rhythms in life and we have to figure out what works best for us (and worry less about what other think). For example, I tend to be very much a morning person. I can get a lot done early in the morning, but have a serious mid-day slump where I struggle to do anything! Figure out your own patterns and find a way to work with them instead of against them.
- The book has an exercise you can do to help you determine our own patterns.
The book had a lot of good information. I would definitely suggest reading it over listening to it on audio. There are a lot of diagrams and examples in the book that would make little sense in audio format. If you like this type of book, you may enjoy the book. I would suggest checking it out from the library or borrowing it from a friend before buying it. Then if you like it well enough, you can purchase it.
