Mange Your Day-to-Day is a collection of essays and Q and A pieces from a group of authors that range from writers to social media experts to entrepreneurs. The book is divided into four sections:
- Building a Rock-Solid Routine
- Finding Focus in a Distracted World
- Taming Your Tools
- Sharpening Your Creative Mind
and ends with a code "A Call to Action." I found the sections on routine and creativity the most helpful for my current phase of life/work. The essays covered topics like perfectionism, creating a daily creative practice, getting unstuck, etc. Nothing presented is really new (the Internet is awash in time management and creativity advice), but I did appreciate the perspectives presented by the authors.
Because all of the essays are fairly short, and because the book itself is about the size of a mass market paperback, this is a great book to stick in your laptop bag and pull out to read when you are on the subway or have some down time during the work day. Although there is nothing earth shattering in it, you are still sure to find some inspiration.
The brief but insightful essays are divided within four sections: Building a Rock-Solid Routine, Finding [and Sustaining] Focus in a Distracted World, Taming Your Tools, and Sharpening Your Creative Mind, followed by a Coda in which Steven Pressfield responds to this question: "How Pro Can You Go?" Each of the four sections includes a Q&A:
o Seth Godin on Honing Your Creative Practice
o Dan Ariely on Understanding Our Compulsions
o Tiffany Shlain on Reconsidering Constant Connectivity
o Stefan Sagmeister on Tricking Your Brain into Creativity
These are among the dozens of explanations special interest and value to me, also listed to indicate the scope of the book's coverage. The prefix for each is "How to...Read more ›
I recommend using a small notebook; write down tips from this book to reflect on during your busy schedule at work or at home.
