Abstract:

"Make work simple by using the tools and tactics that are right for you Your time is under attack. You just can't get enough done. You find yourself wondering where the hours go. You've tried every time-management system you can get your hands on-and they've only succeeded in making your work more complicated. Sound familiar? If you sometimes feel you spend more time managing your productivity than doing actual work, it's time for a change. In Work Simply, renowned productivity expert Carson Tate offers a step-by-step guide to making work simple again by using the style that works best for you. Tate has helped thousands of men and women better manage their time and become more productive. Her success owes partly to the realization that most of us fit into one of four distinct productivity styles: Arrangers, who think about their projects in terms of the people involved; Prioritizers, who are the definition of "goal-oriented"; Visualizers, who possess a unique ability to comprehend the big picture; and Planners, who live for the details. In this book, you'll learn how to identify your own productivity style as well as the styles of those around you-bosses, coworkers, staff, and family. How to select your "tools of the trade" to maximize your effectiveness, from the style of pen you use to the way you decorate your office. When face-to-face conversations are more effective than e-mails-and vice versa. What it takes to lead the perfect meeting. Why a messy desk is right for some, but a disaster for others-and how to tell. After reading Work Simply, you'll come away with a productivity system that truly and fundamentally fits you-and you'll never feel overwhelmed again"--

"Many of us try the popular productivity solutions and tools, only to find ourselves falling further behind and more frustrated than ever. We end up spending more time managing our calendars and to-do lists than doing actual work. Carson Tate says that's because our brains often don't work the way the experts assume. She has helped thousands of men and women become better at time management and productivity, by using a unique assessment tool that helps people discover their individual productivity styles. In Work Simply, she explains the four major styles--Prioritizer, Planner, Arranger, and Visualizer-- and offers invaluable tactics for leveraging your personal style instead of fighting it. She makes it much easier to manage your attention, get more done, tame your inbox, set and reach goals, and much more"--
