I'm taking a bit of time off this week. One of the benefits of writing about time management is that I'm more mindful of how I spend my time these days. That includes vacation time and weekend time. We put a fair amount of thought into how we spend our workdays, or at least we're usually accountable to someone for that time. Time off is more nebulous, and so we have a harder time using it well. But I think that leisure time is too precious to be totally leisurely about leisure. There are ways we can all use the 60 hours between that 6 p.m. Friday beer and 6 a.m. Monday alarm clock better. And by better, I don't mean doing more work. I mean actually enjoying ourselves and achieving the goal of any weekend: rejuvenation, and the ability to face Monday ready to go.
So I'm excited to announce that my next ebook, What the Most Successful People Do on the Weekend, will be out Dec. 31. Like my last one, it only costs $3, and is available from all the major booksellers (Amazon, BN.com, Apple). You do not have to own an e-reader (e.g. a Kindle or Nook) to read this book. Amazon has a free Kindle app that you can download and read ebooks directly in your browser. If you prefer listening to your time management literature, I also recorded the tome as an audiobook, which is available through iTunes and Audible. If you're a regular reader of the blog, I'd really appreciate your giving it a look. And if you're new to this blog, and coming from one of the media articles or reviews of the book, welcome! I hope you'll look around and spend a bit of time with my random musings from the last three years. You can post comments on more recent posts, or you are welcome to email me your thoughts on older ones (lvanderkam at yahoo dot com; I had to disable comments on older posts due to some crafty spam bots who were stealing a lot of my time).
I hope you are enjoying some time off this week as well, and I'll be back to posting regularly in January.
PS. Here's a great early review from the Hush Everyone blog.
