doinglessOverloaded? I’ll bet you are. We all lead busy lives. You fall into bed exhausted at the end of the day, feeling that you’ve got a lot done. Perhaps you are getting lots done. But is it stuff that really matters? Or is it just stuff ?  It’s time to wise up. You will never clear that list . Get used to the idea that some things will never get done. Not delayed. Not rescheduled. Not re–prioritized. But simply dropped. And from now on, instead of trying to clear that endless to–do list, you’re going to do a much smarter thing. You’re going to just do the important stuff . And the brilliant thing is, you already have the power to do this.  That power is to do less .    Soon enough, you’ll have the space to enjoy the moment, be creative, find new or better ways of doing things, get ideas, and spot opportunities you would have missed when you were running around.  In short – you’ll be happier. Much happier.  As soon as you stop doing, the power of doing less will begin to flow.

 How to Do a Great Job… and Go Home on Time

gohomeontimeMost of us haven’t been successful in achieving a work/life balance. It remains a Holy Grail shining in the distance, always out of reach. For those who feel they have it, it seems to have come down to overcoming the guilt they feel as they sidle out at 5 pm while everybody else is still in the office. Small wonder that elusive balance preoccupies us all more and more. But what if it isn’t really a ‘balancing act’ at all?

What if we didn’t have to choose between work and life.What if we all needed to start thinking and acting in a different way, and if we did it would be possible to do a great job AND go home on time?

Bestselling author Fergus O’Connell says it is possible – and in this book he shows us all how to do it.
