Don’t Read This Book – Time Management for Creative People

von Donald Roos

BIS Publishers, 2016

As creative people, we have ideas. Bad, good, weird, clever, and even brilliant ideas. But most of them (even the great ideas) never see the light of day. Why? If you ask a creative person, the answer will always revolve around time. We simply need time to execute an idea, and to do it well – more time than we have.

Don’t Read This Book focuses on how to make choices about everything you do in your daily creative practise and life. The book follows the ’ToDon’tList’ method: When you say ‘no’ to one, task, or project, you have more time to execute another one. The more you subtract, the more focus you get.

The book is divided into 3 parts: Life, Work, and Projects. It covers everything from defining your life goals, to writing a 5 sentence email, to leaving out as much as possible in a project. Wheter you are a student or a professional, this book will save you time. Or, don’t read this book. That will save you time too.
