Create Space: How to Manage Time, and Find Focus, Productivity and Success
The crucial handbook you need to create space in your busy life.
Do you feel stressed? Rushed? Overwhelmed? At work, do you feel that you have too much to think about and way too much to do? At home, does it feel any better? Welcome to the modern world.
For one thousand generations human beings lived in a world of limitless space. In contrast, for our generation space - to think, do, connect or just be - is in desperately short supply. We face a torrent of information, choice and change. There are endless calls on our attention and time. No wonder we sometimes feel as if it's all too much.
But it doesn't have to be like this. Through twelve fascinating stories inspired by his work as an international leadership consultant and executive coach, Derek Draper shows how to create the space you need to take control.
Informed by over a decade of hands-on experience at the most senior levels of business, the book draws on the best of both classical and cutting-edge psychological and behavioural thinking. Each story contains models, tools and tips that have been used successfully in some of the world's biggest organisations to bring about improved performance and meaningful change. In addition to the stories the book highlights the 'Three Gateways' to creating space - setting strategy, raising productivity and embracing the 'space mindset'. It outlines practical proven ways in which you can move from working in a way that 'devours space' to one that 'creates space'. Your time begins now.
