Reading: Work Simply
This month's book is "Work Simply: Embracing the Power of Your Personal Productivity Style" by Carson Tate
This is about being more productive at work but goes at step further than just providing a bunch of tips. Tate recognizes that everyone is different and that we have our own styles/approaches to getting things done. She classifies people into four broad work styles - prioritizers, planners, arrangers, and visualizers - with the recognition that the boundaries are fuzzy and people can have characteristics of more than one style. Tate then provides productivity tools designed to work with each of the four work styles, including organizing your workspace(s) to match your style. Chapters 9 "Tame Your Inbox", 13 "Work Well With Others" and 14 "Lead a Meeting Revoution" by themselves make reading this book worthwhile.
