    It's about time...

    It's about time someone succinctly summarized the true meaning of the age old adage "time is money". Everyone says it, But Dan truly has mastered it. He shares his extensive experience with his readers with a direct, no nonsense, approach that may offend the weak willed. Dan has excluded some technologies from his life to ensure they do not take control- bravo!! Too many of us are burdened with instant communication from everyone, which disrupts every good intention for using the limited time we have.

    If you have finally decided that you need to manage your time before it is all gone, this is the book for you. Without doubt, a management classic!! Mark Mehling, author of "Leaving Your Home-ALONE"

    Become more proactive and less reactive...

    In this book, Mr. Kennedy makes a number of points that if adhered to, will serve to increase one¿s wealth and one¿s satisfaction with life. For example, he shows how to get a measure of what your time is really worth (and it¿s not the standard desired $$ divided by (52 weeks times 40 hours)). This is an important number to get because once you understand the value of your time, the ability to make decisions and to recognize time wasters becomes much easier. As another example, he makes the point that ideally, work time is devoted toward creating wealth and that time wasters (people, telephone, email, etc) interruptions, and distractions directly inhibit or even destroy one¿s ability to create wealth. He then provides a variety of practical and effective means to protect one¿s self from these time wasters and interruptions. Throughout the book, Mr. Kennedy reveals his own regimented and disciplined action towards achieving that which is most important to him. Readers will likely find this insight helpful. Also, there is marketing and sales wisdom scattered throughout the book that will prove interesting and useful to those in business. I particularly liked the phrase, ¿objective orientation versus activity orientation¿. I have personally found that successful people always orient their time and actions around objectives that are meaningful, valuable, worthwhile, and important. Everyone else spends their time on tasks and activities that are nothing more than reactions to whatever is thrown their way. The one big omission that I did see in this book was that Mr. Kennedy did not talk about one of the greatest time savers / maximizers of all ¿ systems. All in all though, this book will certainly provide insight into how to use one¿s time more effectively. At the same time, you actually already know inside of yourself what those important, worthwhile, and valuable things are that you should be doing. The question is whether or not you have the control and discipline of your self to do what¿s most important which in turn will project to others that you only do what¿s most important ¿ causing them to respect you and your time. Or, will you spend your minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years on low-level, entry-level, beginner-level, $7 an hour tasks and activities? If this is how you choose to use your time, someone else will do the $100, $500, $1,000 per hour tasks and reap the big money and rewards. It¿s your choice. No book can help you with self-control and self-discipline. You¿ve got to help yourself.

    You must get this book!

    This is an absolute must-read for anybody looking to be more productive. Dan has a way of 'saying it like it is' and he clearly knows what he is talking about. This is a book I will keep on my bookshelf and look at several times a year, just to stay polished on his recommendations.

    How To Add An Extra Day To Your Week!

    What I liked about this book is that it gives practical advice...no etherial, pie-in-the-sky...I guess that is why he called it NO BS. His idea about working to a clock was worth 10X the cost of the book alone. This one ideas has put an 'extra day' of productive time into my week. I highly recommend this book and I am devouring the other books in his series!

    A MUST!!!

    I feel this book was one of the best books I have ever read. Once I picked it up I only put it down when I was forced to. Dan Kennedy does a great job describing how to run a business in the real world. I would suggest not following all of his rules when you first start out, but every rule/idea he states in the book, I agree with completely.
