I wouldn’t normally go for a book made up articles written by different authors, which is what this is. I’m usually put off because I would expect it to be a bit ‘bitty’ and not hold together as one piece of work. But I’m glad I picked this one up. Getting the Right Work Done is a Harvard Business Review guide, bringing together a series of articles on the subject of productivity and time management – as I’m sure you will have noticed by now, one of my favourite subjects (or shall we say obsessions?).

It’s true that the book doesn’t give you one system to follow. But instead each article gives a tip on a particular subject such as procrastination, to-do lists, and delegation. What I like about it is that I can dip into it, read a short article and come away with a technique that I can immediately use. Brilliant if I need a quick boost to get myself back on track. You don’t have to read the whole thing to benefit from it. Or you could work through the whole thing article by article and build up a toolset of techniques.

One to keep close to hand and grab if I’m struggling with my productivity.
