I picked up this book based on a recommendation from an online class I was taking. The book was suggested as a good resource for ideas about how to overcome procrastination, become more creative, and get more meaningful things done every day. I don't think it exactly accomplished that for me, but I did find many inspiring essays within in.

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.

A series of essays by influential thinkers, mostly aimed at artists, but equally applicable to any business person, about time management and focussing your skills. It acknowledges the modern phenomenon of multi-tasking, in an age of ubiquitous technology, and shows how harmful these habits can be. Each essay links to an author's web-site, should you want more. Well-worth the money!

Jocelyn Glei edited this volume to which she and 20 others contributed their "insights on making things happen," as did Scott Belsky, CEO of Behance, who also wrote the Foreword, "Retooling for a New Era of Work." In fact, this is one of the first volumes in the 99U Box Series published by Amazon. Visit the 99U by Behance website and you will encounter this brief explanation: "For too long, the creative world has focused on idea generation at the expense of idea execution. As the legendary inventor Thomas Edison famously said, 'Genius is 1% inspiration, and 99% perspiration.' To truly make great ideas a reality, we must act, experiment, fail, adapt, and learn on a daily basis. 99U is Behance's effort to provide this "missing curriculum" for making ideas happen. Through our Webby Award-winning website, popular events, and bestselling books, we share pragmatic, action-oriented insights from leading researchers and visionary creatives. At 99U, we don't want to give you more ideas--we want to empower you to make good on the ones you've got."

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...

What a good read. Discipline to know which is carrot, which is stick and finding that hard inner motivator to ignore the shiny ball, shiny ball.

I measure a book by the number of highlights I mark it up with and this is full of highlights. Allot of wisdom here without the fluff some books have to fill them out. Recommended for anyone who wants to manage their business, work life, self more efficiently and be more productive and creative.

Great insights on how to get back to basics in a digital world. Not an artist type, no worries, this book has answers for the entrepreneur to the desk paper pusher. Read the book, get out from under the "I'm connected 24/7"!

This book was a great read. Excellent tips from the very famous artist; I particularly liked tips on time management and retaining focus while working on a task.
I recommend using a small notebook; write down tips from this book to reflect on during your busy schedule at work or at home.
