Here is another in a series of books that attempts to boil down a large subject area into an easy-to-read format. Intended for busy people who want just the bullet points, this book looks at how to best manage your time.      Write out a time journal for an entire week to see just how you are spending your time. You may think that you are being efficient and productive, but seeing it on paper may change your mind. Can changes be made in your schedule, with more time given to …

One of the most common criticisms that I have launched at authors of books that supposedly contain the most effective advice is that the details are lacking. This renders the advice correct but of limited use. I cannot level that criticism against the author of this book. Randel puts forward some very basic and accurate advice on time management. It all begins with the idea that you must consider time as a limited commodity to be spent as wisely as possible. The starting point is making a list of …

We all could use a few extra hours each day. There's always far too much to do and never enough time and energy to do it all. With that said, when we actually examine how we spend our "24 hour gift", it is surprising how much time (and energy) is wasted.     We treat every task like it is a priority then wonder why nothing ever gets done. We procrastinate and get decide that ten minutes surfing on the Internet or watching television won't hurt. Only to realize that an hour somehow …

This is a quirky little book, populated by stick figures who like the rest of us, apparently have issues with time management. Thankfully its easy to read format, sound bite approach to the subject and "ten most important tips to remember about time management" at the rear of the book are well worth your while.    This would be an excellent gift for a student, or someone entering or returning to the workforce, and wondering how they are ever going to juggle all the different …

How many times have you said that you started working on something, only to find yourself sidetracked by another project that popped into your head as you were working on the first one? I do it all the time - and I'm generally wishing that I had more time in my day to go back and work on the things that got left behind. If you're the same way, or even if you're not but would just like to find a more effective way to use your time, then I highly recommend this book.     This is …

Reading this book and understanding how we can best use our time that all of us have is a gift that Jim Randel and his team have provided for us. There is really no way of over-emphasizing its importance as we are all trying to get as much done in the limited amount of hours that we have each day. Deciding what is really important and what can wait, can make the difference in if we are achieving anything throughout the day or wasting precious time.    This book is a triumph for …

This short humorous book, dramatized with comic book stick figures, teaches what all people should do daily no matter what they intend to accomplish. Randel shows his readers by various ways, including quotes from famous writers, how to maximize the use of every hour during the day, get results, and still enjoy life. First, people need to be aware of how much time they are using for the different things that they do daily, such as sleeping, watching TV, reading, eating, and exercise. Then decide …

"The Skinny On Time Management: How to Maximize Your 24-Hour Gift" by Jim Randel is another of "The Skinny On" series for really busy people. The book is advertised as a one-hour read that will be the best TIME you ever spend. If you are looking for strategies and techniques to help you use your time as effectively as possible, but don't have time to wade through the much longer time management books out there, this in fact may be the best time you ever spend learning about time management.      …

Disclosure: I received a free review copy of The Skinny On Time Management from the publisher.      I was fortunate to have come upon Jim Randall's The Skinny On Time Management when I did. I was at a juncture where I felt exceedingly overwhelmed by the life's competing demands. So much to do, so little time, so the saying goes.    The Skinny On Time Management has helped me to take back control and put an end to the debilitating sense of being constantly …

This is a fun, friendly book that you can breeze through in an hour, just as it claims. But you might not want to. There are points at which you might like to think more deeply about the questions the book poses, such as "What do you want to do with your life?" and even "What exactly have you been doing for the past 72 hours?"    The book is presented in frames, like a comic strip, with a wise and witty stick man as the teacher of a quick "class" on time management. It often …

THE SKINNY ON TIME MANAGEMENT is a part of "The Skinny On..." books from Rand Publishing. The series uses the unique format of using stick figure drawings to better illustrate and visualize key concepts and important information. Interspersed with these illustrations are quotes, cheesy jokes, and critical pieces of information that (as claimed in the book's introduction) the author has culled from over 100 different sources.    This book is a bit different from other "The Skinny …

Randel, Jim. "The Skinny on Time Management", Rand Publishing, 2010.    Maximizing Your Time    Amos Lassen    There never seems to be enough time--at least so I thought before I read Jim Randel's hints on how to deal with it. In this clever little book, Randel uses wit and humor to show us how to better manage the time that we have. I think that the key is focus--once one focuses on his time he can make better use of it. Procrastination …
