DENVER, Colorado, June 20, 2012 -- In her fifth book "What To Do When There's Too Much To Do," (Berrett-Koehler; on-sale June 26; $15.95), time management and productivity expert Laura Stack introduces a brand-new model for increasing productivity and regaining control in the workplace.
Stack introduces her innovative Productivity Workflow Formula™ (PWF), bringing together top productivity tools from Stack's 20 years of in-the-trenches experience with hundreds of corporate clients. Her work allows her to study personal productivity skills in action, identify what works and what doesn't, and put her findings into practical application.
"What To Do When There's Too Much To Do" presents a straightforward, comprehensive guide that offers an approach tailored to the realities of today's wired, 24/7 workplace. The book features links to complimentary online bonus material that will make applying the system simple and easy.
"Look at your to-do list---it's ridiculous," Stack says. "You can't get all that done! You're already at capacity, and your list probably doesn't even list every single thing you need to do.
"The last thing you want to do is more."
Stack recalls a skeptical audience member who said before a presentation, "I don't want to hear a productivity consultant telling me to do more with less. I want to do less and achieve more."
In "What to Do When There's Too Much to do," Stack offers the tools necessary to accomplish exactly what her audience member requested.
"You're never going to save time and increase efficiency by adding more to your bloated list," Stack says. "You need a system and a comprehensive approach that will enable you to organize your life around the tasks that really matter and let go of the ones that don't."
Stack's innovative, step-by-step Productivity Workflow Formula teaches readers to spend less time and achieve greater results than they ever thought possible. By following her logical and intuitive process, anyone can wrestle their schedule into submission and ultimately recover as much as 90 minutes of the day (or even more) to use as they see fit.
Stack shows how to separate the productive wheat from the nonproductive chaff; hone in on the high-value tasks; protect the time to do them; and focus on their execution. Throughout this book, readers learn how to scale back: "Reduce, Reduce, Reduce" is her mantra. Stack provides dozens of ways to shrink a to-do list, calendar commitments, distractions, interruptions, information overload, inefficiencies, and energy expenditures. Each reduction leads to increased productivity and time saved.
"You know you can't work any harder," Stack says. "If you want to accomplish more you have to work differently."
In "What To Do When There's Too Much To Do," Stack shows readers how to keep their sanity, advance their careers, and spend more time with family and friends by redefining workplace productivity, offering effective strategies for doing less, shaving 90 minutes off of each workday, and actually creating greater results in the process.
