Take Back Your Time: Identify Your Priorities, Decrease Stress, and Increase Productivity by Morgan Tyree


Take Back Your Time: Identify Your Priorities, Decrease Stress, and Increase ProductivityWe all get 24 hours in a day--but it never seems like quite enough time, does it? Morgan Tyree wants to help you take back your time with her proven time management system. With energy and enthusiasm, Morgan shows you how to organize and manage your time using her simple three-color time zone system of green, yellow, and red--moxie time, multitasking time, and me time. She shows you how to

- identify your most productive times each day
- regulate between essentials and nonessentials
- schedule your three time zones
- match your time zones with your capacities

If you've struggled to find balance and direction in your overloaded life, let Morgan's system help you discover the freedom of less hustle and more harmony.


Take Back Your Time: Identify Your Priorities, Decrease Stress, and Increase Productivity by Morgan Tyree
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stressing over getting everything done? Wondering how you can find more minutes and hours in a day? Well, all of us are given twenty-four hours each day but knowing how to manage these hours is the key and Morgan Tyree has written a book to help us get started. In her introduction she states that if we want to 'maximize time and minimize stress,  you are in the right place' and she also mentions our seasons and our walks of life. Well, I am now a retired librarian but it seems like I am busier than ever, so, Take Back Your Time is definitely a book I need to read!

Tyree offers so many tips and instructions in the nine chapters of this book. Each chapter has a creative title and each one begins with an interesting quote about time.  I was especially intrigued by suggestions offered in the three chapters labeled as the time zones chapters with the simple reminders that  Green (GTZ) means Go; learning to juggle our time and proceeding with caution in the Yellow (YTZ) ;  and taking time for our self-care and knowing when to stop in the Red zone (RTZ).

Perhaps the best tip is for the younger readers of this book  but it is one that we older readers should have already learned. 'Setting things down, saying no, or even changing your mind are all part of a good time manager. Embrace your season, your productivity, and your design.' And finally, Tyree reminds us that our time is 'a responsibilty, a privilege, and a gift.'

Morgan Tyree offers practical tips and suggestions that are easily understood and adaptable and she also shares some of her own experiences. It is clear that she has invested a lot of thought, time, and effort in the writing of this book and I believe that is will be a valuable resource to many people

I received a complimentary digital copy of this book and I am voluntarily sharing my honest thoughts in this review.
