Do it Tomorrow and Other Secrets of Time Management Paperback
by Mark Forster
Mark Forster's book "Get Everything Done and Still Have Time to Play" took an entirely new approach to time management.
One of his most important points was that once we have taken on a commitment, prioritising does not work because we need to do everything relating to that commitment.
In the six years since he wrote the book as he has reached thousands of people through writing, seminars and coaching, he has continued to develop and refine his methods .
He has now perfected even more effective methods of getting everything done through the introduction of some radical new ideas, including closed lists, the manyana principle and the "will do" list.
He is brilliant at helping people to use new forms of communication effectively so that they do not become a tyrant.
The result is a complete system which will enable almost anyone to complete one day's work in one day.

Review by Libbeth
I found that I had already developed a lot of the suggestions as my own way of doing things, but I found the idea of a "Current Initiative" to be a better idea than my usual method of keep transferring a "to do" and never actually doing it because it seemed overwhelming.
Review by markhadfield
The most useful book on working efficiently and effectively that I've read for a long time. Helped to galvanise a lot things I was already doing half-heartedly or discovering partially, as well as introducing some new ideas and tips. I like that Mark works from home as his own boss - he has discovered how to crack most of the issues I've run into doing the same. The chapter on procrastination is bizarre but true - we really can learn to catch our reactive brain off-guard using our rational brain. Top tip? Rather than work half-heartedly when you have one of those days where nothing is pressing, set a deadline of finishing early! Work efficiently and effectively to 2pm, and then take the rest of the day off rather than working half-heartedly til 6pm! I'm really going to try that one!I will be coming back to this book regularly to review my systems and thought processes.
