Overview

Offers an easy-to-implement solution to a problem--e-mail and information overload--that plagues millions of people
• Draws on the authors' extensive experience working with major corporate clients
• Includes a real-world case study of how the principles in the book were implemented at Capital One

Do you spend so much time dealing with e-mails--reading them, writing them, responding to them, responding to responses--that you feel like you're just going round and round and getting nowhere? Meet Harold, an HR director so overwhelmed by email he feels like a hamster on a wheel. Just in time, Harold meets a coach--a leading expert on email efficiency and etiquette with a simple system that helps Harold eliminate needless emails, write better messages, and file and find information in a flash. He gets immediate results--and reclaims his life.

This delightful and much-needed fable is based on the authors' extensive experience helping employees at companies like Clear Channel, Procter and Gamble, and Pfizer manage e-mail more efficiently. The book includes a remarkable case study of the authors' work with Capital One, where employees estimated they saved thirteen days a year by applying Hamster Revolution techniques. This book is perfect for time-starved professionals eager to restore balance and order to their busy lives.

    Alone- By sorrow

    I fell...<br>
    I saved you<br>

    I healed you<br>
    <br>
    Corus<br>
    When i fell you coulnt catch me<br>
    When i hurt you coulnt love me...<br>
    You left me alone...<br>
    Fighting to survive...<br>
    I just let go...<br>
    <br>
    So you just leave me here...<br>
    All alone...<br>

    Falling farther...<br>
    I'm falling all alone...<br>
