This time management book is one of the most practical, applicable, and sensible ones I’ve EVER read

📚 The Reading Life 📚

Against all the forces conspiring to steal your focus and attention, today’s book provides 87 strategies you can use to fight back.

Not only that, but the authors also lay out a 4-step strategy for reclaiming your time and energy so you can direct it toward what really matters.

The book is called Make Time, and I’ve written a complete breakdown of all the Key Ideas and Action Steps that you can read here for free, but I’m also going to make a case for it in this article.

Then I’ve also got short summaries on 4 other great books that can help you out tremendously in various ways (more on that later), as well as a few other things thrown in that, if you’re a book lover like me, you may really enjoy as well.

But I’d recommend Make Time for these people specifically:

*People who feel completely overwhelmed by how much there is to do, how much the modern world expects of them, and how hard it is to make positive, lasting changes in their lives.

*Anyone who wants a straightforward, easy-to-understand system for making even just a little (or a lot) more time for what truly matters, and for ditching what doesn’t.

*High-performers and super-achievers who want to gain a competitive edge against a global system designed and optimized for stealing their attention and focus away from what will really make a difference in their lives and businesses.

If any of that describes you, then you’d definitely profit from reading Make Time! But allow me to introduce the other books today, and I also wanted to say that this is an excerpt from my free newsletter, The Reading Life, which is now read and enjoyed by more than 3,400 people!

  1. Make Time, by Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky
