“Let’s face it—we’re all human and many of us fall prey to bouts of unproductive behaviour from time to time, sometimes despite knowing better. In this book you’ll be reminded of the top ways to be more productive all gathered together in one place (itself allowing you to be more productive!). I love the useful suggestions at the end of each Way on how and with whom to implement her tips. I even learned some clever ideas I’ll be implementing myself (Way 6 comes to mind!). Finally the three-part structure to the book leaves no productivity stone unturned and allows your mind to focus on one area at a time. An excellent and quick read you’ll refer to again and again.”

“As a high energy person and very passionate about what I do, I want to help everyone all of the time, which has had a negative impact on my time, productivity and work/life balance. This book is so spot on, I felt like I was reading about me! The first time I spoke to Grace she instantly had a calming effect on me. I am never disappointed with anything she shares and this extends to her book. Grace has a knack of making it all less overwhelming and more achievable. I loved the ‘Power Hour’ and gave it a go… WOW, how could I have not done this before, it made such a difference. Before I would feel guilty not being constantly available for everyone, and even more so if I didn’t check my emails and social media every five minutes dare I miss a message. However, with Grace’s highly invaluable and easy-to-implement guidance, I have already started to put things into practice and noticing the difference. This book will be forever my guide!!”

—Carmen MacDougall, motivational speaker and
founder of The VA Coaching and Training Company

Grace writes with a light, friendly style which makes this book a breeze to read. There’s no waffle—this is truly a book for busy people and Grace gets straight to the point, offering us gem after gem in quick succession. I defy anyone to finish reading 21 Ways to Manage the Stuff that Sucks Up Your Time (and it won’t suck your time to do so!) and not emerge with at least one fantastic time tip that will make them feel more productive.”
