There's just too much to do!!!
There is a lot to do. There is a lot to do at home or at work. Sometimes it just feels overwhelming. Don't you wish you could be more productive?
The Special Forces Green Berets are known as masters at getting things done. By normal standards, some of their missions would be deemed impossible. Often times they are expected to operate far behind enemy lines with limited resources. Their training gives them principles and techniques in being extremely effective and doing more with less. By using some of their principles you will be able to:
● Plan and use your time more effectively
● Increase your confidence
● Reduce distractions
● Train for success
● Improve commitment
● and much more
Michael Martel uses his real experiences as a Green Beret to illustrate how you can use these techniques in your life to "get er done." It is a great, interesting read that will make you much more effective in your daily activities.
Review: A fast read for good leadership tips!
This is an example of good things coming in small packages. The author covers principles that include Backward Planning, Reducing Distractions (which includes more than the obvious), Muscle Memory, Point of No Return, Be a Trained Observer and more. The methods presented can assist with the skills bulleted in the blurb description.
Many of the principles can work for any business from small, like my own, to larger companies and projects. The Backward Planning makes great sense for meeting project deadlines. It is a system I sort of used in the past but now will use even more. Also I can see good uses for the muscle memory... practice, practice and practice.
One or two areas I didn't think would help a very small office but the principles are still sound. I definitely recommend this book as a useful tool for leaders in business or organizations.
******Sorry - I'm not giving this book away as I plan to put it my office for future reference. :-) If you are in business it would be worth the investment to get your own copy.
Thank you to Pump it Up Books and Mr. Martel who provided the book for review as part of his blog tour.
