The 12 Week Year: Brian P Morgan & Michael Lennington
The 12 Week Year: A Book Review
Most organizations and individuals work in the context of annual goals and plans; a twelve-month execution cycle. Instead, The 12 Week Year avoids the pitfalls and low productivity of annualized thinking. This book redefines your “year” to be 12 weeks long. In 12 weeks, there just isn’t enough time to get complacent, and urgency increases and intensifies. The 12 Week Year creates focus and clarity on what matters most and a sense of urgency to do it now. In the end more of the important stuff gets done and the impact on results is profound.
- Explains how to leverage the power of a 12 week year to drive improved results in any area of your life
- Offers a how-to book for both individuals and organizations seeking to improve their execution effectiveness
- Authors are leading experts on execution and implementation
Turn your organization’s idea of a year on its head, and speed your journey to success.
Eat That Frog by Brian Tracy
Eat That Frog; A Book Review
Eat that Frog is far one of my favorite books for time management. My book has so many highlights, notes and ideas written in the pages that I could probably write a whole new book of my own with added info (not that I would because I am not a writer), but the ideas generated from this book were phenomenal!!
If you are looking for some ideas on how to be better at managing your time because you are a procrastinator or you aren’t sure where to start with getting yourself more organized this is definitely a book that you will want to grab because it is all inclusive, and with 21 ways to do it, it is like action waiting to happen for you and your to do list!

Home and Office Timer
The Purpose of a Timer in your Planning
I love using a timer. It helps me to take some of the overwhelm out because I can focus better. I can curb frustration because I know at the end of the day I have done all I can do. And it helps me fight distraction because for those 30 minutes it is me and my work.
