Extracts from the book

The choice is yours
The ultimate goal of managing yourself is to feel good and achieve what you want. Always remember that you have a choice.
The decision is yours
If you are not to find yourself simply falling in with whatever happens at the time, you have to draw a line across your life and decide what you want to do.
Creating balance
Coping with life's demands is a constant juggling trick...There are three important areas where managing to do this is crucial - your work life, your home life and your personal life. The difficulty is that there is very rarely a time when all three areas are in harmony.
Being aware of what you are good at is not the same thing as wanting to be good at something; so beware of chasing shadows.

Compact, concise and refreshingly free of jargon, the Pocket Manager Management Guides have the potential to reviatalise any business, even if it's a successful one.

Business Informer
Especially for people who have neither the time nor the inclination for ploughing through the normal tomes...
