Review published on February 27, 2018.
What an apt book for me to review – I am always chasing my tail – perhaps I am trying to fit full-time work into part-time hours (but that’s another story).
How do I spend my time? Jumping from one thing to another, which can be quite normal as I am a Quality Governance Manager in a very busy NHS trust.
Reading this book has made me think about just how I spend my time, how I do busy (martyr me, I am the only one here late at night (well I am in my team) others leave on time etc etc., my bucket is always over flowing).
I have always wanted to meditate, but when have I got time to meditate? I eat lunch at my desk, although I do have time for my home emails etc. (I freelance too).
There are so many practice sections and I have found them invaluable – sorting out my mind, being positive, don’t buy into worries such as losing your job – readers, you may become more ineffective.
I did like the section ‘What a Superhero am I?’ – this is me to a T at work – in the end, all that happens is I get more stressed – part of this is identifying and doing something about it.
This is well written and well researched and there is a good section for further reading and useful resources for support.
It is light hearted and practical, so give this a go – take the time and become calm and composed.
