This book will change what you think it takes to be productive.
True productivity in a world where the work never ends is not about working harder, faster or longer. It’s about working smarter, doing your best work and coming home knowing you delivered.
You’ve already tried those other, old time-management techniques, but when you’re drowning in emails, meeting requests, deadlines, competing priorities, and never-ending to-do lists - they just haven’t worked! There’s always way too much to do and never enough time.
This is a better way.
How To Be Really Productive gives you practical guidance and key skills that will give you the freedom, space and mindset you need to get organised, focused and in control, to manage your workload and other people’s expectations and to get more of the right things done.
So take control today and discover a new, empowering approach that will banish the stress, pressure and craziness and leave you feeling calm, balanced and really, really productive.

Grace dispenses once and for all with the idea that productivity is mainly about organising time, or stuff. This is a book about changing the way you think about your life, to understand your own priorities, motivations and boundaries. That said, it's never fluffy: it's rooted in what it means practically to be a busy person in a manic world. There are plenty of real-life stories and examples from other experts, Grace's clients and her own life of how to put her ideas into practice.
Grace Marshall's approach is highly practical and the book is full of examples of the struggles she and those she works with and also their successes, tricks and tips. Each chapter finishes with 'Over to you' - a section where you answer questions to address some of the core issues. I found this useful for myself and also my team at work -in a team meeting we all answered the questions to do with setting boundaries and saying now. This is a core skill for prioritising your time. Remember it's not about doing more but doing better. I must admit I took a copy of the examples of how to say no and have it in my desk at work!
The book is well written and a quick read. And I know I'll return to it. It has earned a place on my shelf alongside other productivity classics like Getting Things Done and The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People.
