I was really excited when I got this book for a review. I always work more and gain less. I needed some techniques to alter this image. This book helped me to set some strategies in order to achieve my goals by working less. And no it doesn’t talk about being lazy and do nothing and you will gain more. No. There are actually 9 steps in order to achieve the "work less and do more" thing.
Personally, I felt the book was repetitive and wordy for the most of the time. It was full of information any mankind was familiar with it. I had to skip many pages because I knew already how to organize my time and stop wasting time, but it could be just me. It was good in a sense of just reminding me.
However, the book was full of great techniques. I actually bookmarked all those techniques so I don’t forget about them.
My favourite chapter was 4 or step 4.
