She then discusses values and goals, which leads into time management--calendars, daily planners and a master list.

You'll discover how to draw on the strengths from those who are a little more organized, and how to focus on what your priorities and goals really are so you can apply them to your daily life.

Review quote

"This title provides a practical approach to determining priorities, managing a multitude of tasks, and balancing work and personal life. There are many books on the market about time management and organization and J'aime Foust includes them in her bibliography. It is refreshing to have such a guide written from a school librarian's point of view. She leads the reader through a series of activities such as constructing a time status check or developing a master list, daily planner, and schedule. Once you have a picture of what needs to be done, Foust offers a way to prioritize tasks by assigning them to a grid. Readers learn how to stay on target and how to deal with distractions. The book ends with brief chapters on how to keep library work and storage spaces more efficient, and how to maintain effective budget and purchasing files. The book reads as though you're conversing with Foust, and she includes admissions of her own organizational challenges, as well as encouragement to the reader. Whether you're new to the field or a seasoned veteran, these practical ideas will help you focus or refocus your management skills. Coupled with clever cartoon illustrations for each chapter, this is another valuable addition to Linworth's list of librarian tools. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
