9780349401201: Busy: How to thrive in a world of too much

A Success Best Book of 2015
Business psychologist Tony Crabbe outlines a unique three-step approach to combating one of the modern life's great problems: being too busy.

BUSY is divided into four digestible sections-Mastery, Differentiation, and Engagement-that will teach readers how to switch from managing time to managing attention, how to transition toward a career strategy that doesn't hinge on productivity, how to think differently about success by re-engaging with what matters, and how to create the impetus, energy, and clarity to put all these changes into effect. Crabbe draws on entertaining psychological studies to show why we're getting it wrong at the moment and to develop a fresh new approach to taking back one's life from chaotic outside forces. Rarely has a book been more timely in both its scope and in its immediate impact.

Descripción Little, Brown Book Group, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. * One of Success magazine s Best Books of 2015 *It s difficult to ask anybody How are you? without hearing the word busy somewhere in their response. We feel overwhelmed by busyness because of the demands on our time: our inbox and our to-do list are bulging, a huge amount of people expect things from us and our organisations are trying to do more with fewer people. But it doesn t have to be that way. In reality, busyness isn t essential. Yes, there is a lot to do, but believing you re always busy because you have so much to do is both false and unhelpful. Busyness is a normal response to a world of too much, but it isn t the only response.In Busy Tony Crabbe draws on solid psychological research to address one of the great problems of modern life: we re too busy. But it isn t a time-management book. Rather than providing advice for increasing productivity and efficiency, it sets out four key strategies (corresponding to sections of the book) for thriving despite of the overload of too much:1. Mastery - to move beyond busyness you need to regain a sense of mastery over your life. This section shows you how to build a sense of control back into your life, take responsibility for making choices and how to set boundaries to protect you from the flood of demands and information.2. Focus - in a world of too much, success is not about doing more at work but about making an impact. This section outlines three ways to move to a career strategy that doesn t rely on productivity alone.3. Engagement - busyness can cause you to disengage from the people, values and activities that are important to us. This section provides you with the three keys to re-engaging with your work and life.4. Momentum - part of the challenge to moving beyond busyness is that even if you agree you should make the change, you re too busy to find the time and energy to do anything about it. This section is dedicated to helping you make the change, creating the impetus, energy and clarity to move to a life less busy. Nº de ref. de la librería AA29780349401201
