I picked this up yesterday and am somewhat disappointed so far. Much of what he is say is either common sense or recycled advice (don't be a slave to phone, fax, email, interruptions), and a lot of what he advocates doing requires at least one staff person running interference for you full time. I'm trying to start an indie game business that has zero income right now, so that doesn't help.I would definitely look into this book:
No B.S. Time Management for Entrepeneurs
His writing style is humorous and even saucy, but I'm halfway through and don't see a whole lot of new ideas here. I'll look at the rest over the weekend. I'd strongly recommend Covey's "7 Habits..." before this book; it pertains to your life as a whole as opposed to just your business, but the same time mgmt stuff is covered, and more thoughtfully and in-depth IMO:
Well, I haven't read anything about time management before, so it was a revolution for me. I personally got turned off by his enthusiastic hate of technology, but I understood what he was getting at. I'll look into Covey's book.Originally Posted by monco
I am also making plans to start my own business, and it also has zero income currently. Still, at the very least, reading that book made me realize that my time is and should be valuable. This may seem contradictory to the other thread where I admit to a three hour total commute per day, but part of the reason I commute is to make decent money for the purposes of having a good foundation for my business, so the time tradeoff there is worth it currently.
There are ways to offset an ugly commute though. Things like "Books on CD" and things like that. Put that time to some use other than staring out the windshield.This may seem contradictory to the other thread where I admit to a three hour total commute per day, but part of the reason I commute is to make decent money for the purposes of having a good foundation for my business, so the time tradeoff there is worth it currently.
