The Time Bandit Solution: Recovering Stolen Time You Never Knew You Had
You may not realize you are at the mercy of time bandits – people who steal your precious time, not with malice or intention, but with crippling effect on your own pursuits. They steal 40 to 60 percent of your time. And because your worst time bandits are probably your family, colleagues, clients, bosses and friends, we can’t just say no — we would risk offending them, or worse, losing clients or getting fired.
Thus, “The Time Bandit Solution” is a step-by-step lesson on how to recover stolen time you never knew you had. It is designed to teach you the arts and skills for graciously negotiating with the Time Bandits to prevent interruptions from sapping your productivity and satisfaction. “The Time Bandit Solution” also explains how the damage they cause lingers well beyond the interruption itself, how the stress of interruptions subtracts joy from your most important endeavors, and how to redeploy the time you recover.
Do you often think or say, ”I have too much to do, and not enough time to do it?” If so, this book is for you. If you find yourself frustrated by too many interruptions and feel powerless to prevent them, you want to read this book.
This excerpt from chapters 1:00 and 1:30 focuses on the causes and manifestations of time lost as a result of unwanted, unnecessary and wasteful interruptions, and provides a calculator to measure how much of your time is wasted by interruption time-loss factors.
