IntroductionWe at The Skinny On books believe that less is more. We believe that too many writers, thinkers and researchers tend to use 10 words when 5 will do. Perhaps that is historical. Since books have always been pretty hefty items, writers see no reason to change what has worked in the past.
We don't believe that what worked in the past should be the way of the future. Heck, screaming from one neighbor to another may have been an adequate form of communication 200 years ago, but today cell phones are generally preferable.
Our objective is to completely research a particular subject-in this case time management-and then to distill for you, the reader, just what you need to know. Not all the fluff ... not all the filler. Just what you need to know.
We have read about 100 books and articles on time management and here is what we learned: the process was a waste of time! All the writings say pretty much the same thing. The fact is that there are about 50 principles of time management that you need to know ... and once you learn those, you have learned what you need to know about this subject. All 50 of these principles are addressed in this book.
We are asking for JUST one hour of your time to read our book. We assure you that reading our book will be one of the best expenditures of your time that you have ever made.
