When Your time is under attack. You just can’t get enough done. You find yourself wondering where the hours go. You’ve tried every time-management system you can get your hands on—and they’ve only succeeded in making your work more complicated.
Many of us try popular productivity solutions and tools only to find ourselves falling further behind and more frustrated than ever. We end up spending more time managing our calendars and to-do lists than doing actual work.
But in actual fact you can make work simple by using the tools and tactics that are right for you.
All you need to do is to own a copy of Work Simply. In this book, you’ll learn to identify which one of four productivity styles: Arrangers; Prioritizes; Visualizers and Planners that can maximize your effectiveness.
If you sometimes feel you spend more time managing your productivity than doing actual work, it’s time for a change.
In Work Simply, renowned productivity expert Carson Tate offers a step-by-step guide to making work simple again by using the style that works best for you.
Tate has helped thousands of men and women better manage their time and become more productive.
Her success owes partly to the realization that most of us fit into one of four distinct productivity styles: Arrangers, who think about their projects in terms of the people involved; Prioritizers, who are the definition of “goal-oriented”; Visualizers, who possess a unique ability to comprehend the big picture; and Planners, who live for the details.
In this book, you’ll learn
● How to identify your own productivity style as well as the styles of those around you—bosses, coworkers, staff, and family.
● How to select your “tools of the trade” to maximize your effectiveness, from the style of pen you use to the way you decorate your office.
● When face-to-face conversations are more effective than e-mails—and vice versa.
● What it takes to lead the perfect meeting.
● Why a messy desk is right for some, but a disaster for others—and how to tell.
After reading Work Simply, you’ll come away with a productivity system that truly and fundamentally fits you—and you’ll never feel overwhelmed again.
OUR BRAINS OFTEN DON’T WORK THE WAY EXPERTS ASSUME.
Carson has helped thousands of men and women become better at time management and productivity by using a unique assessment tool that helps people discover their individual productivity styles.
In Work Simply, she explains the four major styles – Prioritizer, Planner, Arranger and Visualizer – and offers invaluable tactics for leveraging your personal style instead of fighting it. She makes it much easier to manage your attention span, get more done, tame your inbox, set and reach goals and much more.
She also shows how understanding the different styles can improve workplace relationships with bosses, colleagues, and employees. For instance, you’ll find out why it’s more effective to e-mail a Planner, but deliver the same message in person to an Arranger.
Even if you’ve read other books about managing your time and have tried multiple approaches, this book is still a good read because of its focus on four different productivity styles ：
➽ and visualizer.
There’s a quiz to help you find your preferred style, and then tips and recommendations for ways to align your style with how you work, participate on a team, manage, coach, and generally interact at work.
This is a very good book for business productivity as it shows how to structure work and present information for different personality styles. In addition it helps in preventing possible personality work style clashes. This is important no matter which field you are in.
The book is very business focused as that’s the target audience. While I’m not part of that I can still use a lot of the information in the book.
While meetings and days in my field are not structured the same, the types of meetings, the roles people play and productivity styles still apply. The examples used are helpful as well. They are not superfluous or jarring, flowing well with the text and fitting well in each topic.
If you haven’t thought about this kind of approach to your time management, I would definitely recommend reading this book.
