I thought that I knew Outlook and OneNote inside out. I also thought I was proficient in time management having read dozens of books and attended numerous seminars on the subject. Just a few pages into this book I had tips and strategies that will save me several hours week. Using procedures described in the book I now have a distrsction-free Outlook interface, a weekly planning module, a clean daily task list and a stream lined implementation of OneNote.
