"In order to get more done, we must first feel like we have all the time in the world. Think about it: why haven't you trained for that 5K or read War and Peace? Probably because you feel beaten down by all the time you don't seem to have... In this book, Vanderkam reveals the seven counter-intuitive principles the most time-free people have adopted. She teaches mindset shifts to help you feel calm on the busiest days and tools to help you get more done without feeling overwhelmed... The strategies in this book can help if your life feels out of control, but they can also help if you want to take your career, your relationships, and your personal happiness to the next level. Vanderkam has packed this book with insights from busy yet relaxed professionals, including "time makeovers" of people who are learning how to use these tools."--Inside dust jacket.

Review excerpt: "My favorite idea from this book is the concept of a calendar “jubilee year,” wherein, if possible, one removes all commitments and scheduled activities from a calendar. Then, starting from scratch, add back in activities and commitments deliberately, asking “why am I doing this?” or “does this activity make me happy?”"

A book about tracking time, and to take it a day at a time. Surprisingly comforting book.

A lovely guide to creating more memories with those we love, finding space and time, and savoring one’s life.
