Give Me a Break – the art of making time work for you

Hugh Culver

Price: FREE

Having seen Hugh Culver live at a conference, I knew had to read his book. I have heard a lot of “time management” speakers in the past, but not one affected me the way Hugh did. I ordered two books knowing that I would read one and that I would share the other with fellow co-workers who were also struggling to manage their time effectively. I have shared many of his tips and ideas and encouraged others to embrace his wisdom…with much success. There are so many great tools in this book that you can EASILY implement in your daily living. Hugh also shares a number of creative ideas that change the way that you think and ensure that it is YOU in charge of your time, rather than time being in charge of you. If there is one book you should read to take control of your hectic life, this is it!

Jill Hurley

The always-on, striving for more, multitasking, 24/7 world we live in is having its toll. We are getting busier, but not happier.
While the “time management” movement created more list-makers, it failed to address the heart of why “To-Do’s” tended to trump time for family, and time to think, reflect, and plan was replaced by a bulging email Inbox.
In Give Me a Break, Hugh Culver presents a model for getting to the heart of why we never seem to have enough time and how to create the time we actually need. A past workaholic, successful business owner, and consultant to large corporations, Culver knows a lot about being busy and what defines success. His solution is to first redefine the beliefs that drive the behavior and from there reset priorities, create better systems, practice better habits, and finally, invest in reflection, review, and renewal.
The five systems in Give Me a Break are based on observations with thousands of employees in over a dozen industries. For each system, Culver presents persuasive arguments for investing in a redesign of your approach to work. For example, reducing unwanted interruptions by just twenty minutes a day is the equivalent of finding two weeks of new time a year. Like committing to making deposits in a bank account, Culver explains, the benefits of creating the time you want can be exponential. Rather than the usual list of productivity habits, Culver suggests eight original approaches he has tested with participants in his live training seminars over the past twelve years. For example, Honor the Mundane is the perfect active meditation for the always-on mind while Go with the Flow matches work difficulty to the natural rhythms of our energy in the day. A favorite habit of his clients is Start a Stop-Doing List where you stop doing low-value, unwanted, or simply out-dated tasks in favor of Me-Time (Culver is big on recharging the mind and spirit with regular exercise, and down-time). If you have tried the usual litany of time management books and still find you procrastinate and never seem to have time for yourself, this could be the solution for you.

50 Ways to Protect Your Identity in a Digital Age: New Financial Threats You Need to Know and How to Avoid Them

Steve Weisman

Price: FREE

I know someone who is living the nightmare of stolen identity, loss of credit, and incredible frustration and stress that doesn’t seem to have an end in sight. (The opposite is true: it keeps getting worse). There seems to be a certain randomness to the process of identity theft, to some extent it is a crime of opportunity. But it is also a crime that many of us innocently leave ourselves vulnerable to because we don’t know how to think like a criminal. My friend is not someone who is reckless or sloppy; she took all the ordinary precautions to protect her privacy online and in her daily life. Why it happened to her and not to people who are a bit more blasé about the information they provide is beyond me. I identify with her, because my attitude and behavior are so similar to hers that, if it happened to her, it can happen to me. We don’t do Facebook; we don’t even own smart phones or enter private information in our dumb phones; we remove old hard drives from computers before discarding; we don’t provide information to people who phone; we are very careful online–we thought we were safe. Or, at least, safer than average. I wanted to get inside the mind of identity thieves to see what they look for, how they choose their victims and, more importantly, what am I overlooking. This book is an eye-opener. It goes beyond the obvious and common sense precautions I was already taking and shows vulnerabilities that never entered my mind, even though I am a very private and cautious person.

It is better to stop identity theft from happening in the first place than have to fix or repair the situation afterwards. Steve Weisman reveals the threats of new identity theft attacks based on use of Facebook, iPad, iPhone, Android, cloud apps, iPod, and other new technologies — and shows you how to protect yourself, or how to fix the damage if you’ve already been attacked! Discover why ID theft is more dangerous than ever, and discover today’s most dangerous new threats — including attacks targeting medical records, personal finance and online banking sites, the elderly, and military service members. Meet the hackers and organized crime groups who want to steal your identity and money — and learn how to protect your data and your life! Step by step, Weisman shows how to avoid risks, minimize risks you can’t completely avoid, and immediately take the right steps if you’re ever victimized. He objectively reviews new products and services that promise to fight identity theft, and previews emerging dangers, such as RFID credit cards. If you use a computer, the Internet, a smartphone, cell phone, tablet, or any other communications device, 50 Ways to Protect Your Identity in a Digital Age isn’t just an indispensable wake-up call: it’s the world’s best resource for protecting yourself!
