Description
Stressed out with too much to do and too little time to do it? Here are 10 easily learned behaviors to which will empower you to accomplish more of the important things in less time and with less effort and stress. Start with behaviors which enable you to get more things done and then, once you’ve freed up some time, go on to behaviors which focus on doing the important things. Many people are stressed out because they have too much to do and not enough time to do it. This is a problem for people in many roles, including professionals, managers, small business owners, and working mothers. People are losing the satisfaction of a job well done and the organizations, whether major corporations, non-profits, small business, or one person activities, are losing the value that getting important projects done in a timely manner, or even at all. As a manager and later as a profitability consultant, Dr. Franks acted as change agent. Successful change requires taking steps to make it happen and most people were too busy. In order for people to have the time and focus to bring about change, he evolved quick to implement techniques for people to use. Those techniques are the basis of this book.
About the author
Dr. Richard Franks has a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Washington and a PhD degree from University of California, Berkeley, in Electrical Engineering, and is certified internationally in strategic and project management consulting. For many years, Dick has been interested in how systems behave, including how organizations manage work and how work is done. After getting his PhD, he went to Bell Labs in New Jersey, first doing math modeling and analysis of systems’ performance and later managing a series of departments involved in various aspects of systems, eventually focusing on improving the effectiveness of organizations. During the entire time he specialized in the performance of systems, including human ones. Dick took early retirement, moved to Northern California and began consulting for billion dollar divisions of major corporations to improve their profitability through improved operational management. His consulting involved both developing strategies and coaching the organizations through their implementation. Many people in these organizations were overloaded and working long hours under high stress. Improving that was a key part of Dick’s strategies and implementations for improving operational management. This book contains 10 easily adopted behaviors that Dick evolved during his consulting. They will increase your work and personal effectiveness while reducing the stress that comes from having too much to do in the time available. Although a complete system, the book is set up so you can try these ideas singly or in small, related groups. Any of them will immediately increase your effectiveness and noticeably reduce your workload induced stress level.
