Book Review : Time Warrior and 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself

I read ALOT, and every now and again I stumble across books that are life changing and hit home.  Time Warrior and 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself, by Steve Chandler are two such books.

If you are in SharePoint, (or just IT for that matter), or running your own business and in SharePoint, you will know all to well about never having enough time to do anything. There are incessant deadlines, little sleep and a sense of being constantly overwhelmed.  I read this book to help me with time management – but never saw the message in that book coming.  You think you simply just have too much to do?  Sorry to say, but you don’t – you just can’t ever finish anything and you just don’t feel like doing any of it.  Yes, it was a surprise to me too.  I couldn’t put this book down.

I read 100 Ways next only because I enjoyed Time Warrior so much, but they are a perfect compliment for each other.  The psychology behind your unending workload is eloquently supported by solid ideas in getting going.

It will take some time for this to sink in properly … which just makes everything he says in his book true because it doesn’t have to “take time”, but I’ve put some things into practice already and it is definitely making a difference.

  1. You said it Marlon, we need to stop that. The alternative is an endless spiral of depression, dissatisfied clients and unfinished tasks.

  2. Brilliant…the statement “You think you simply just have too much to do? Sorry to say, but you don’t – you just can’t ever finish anything and you just don’t feel like doing any of it” really hit home and this is something I was pondering on in the last few weeks as well. Part of that problem is also the fact that we want to be super heroes…taking on way too much and always wanting to please everyone out there. We dont want to say no to any requests because we feel it might make us less of who we are.
