I recently borrowed How to save an hour every day by Michael Heppell from my local library.
In a nutshell his book presents a variety of different ideas to help you be more effective and save time, with the aim that eventually you can save an hour each day, every day. Heppell is so convinced that he boasts on the back of the book:
“I’m so certain this book will help you save an hour every day, I guarantee it. If you’ve read the book, put the ideas into action and yet somehow haven’t saved that vital hour, I’ll personally give you your money back.”
The book has a range of smaller ideas that might buy you 5-15 minutes each day, up to bigger ideas or models which affect more than just one task. It must be said however, that as I flicked through the different ideas, none of them were especially original or revolutionary, but they do work, and that’s the important thing.
If you’re struggling with time management or procrastinating then this is a good book to flick through to change up the way you organise your life.
