About

I grew up in The Netherlands, went to university in Los Angeles and now I'm living in different places every couple months. When I'm not writing about personal productivity or time management, I'm probably trying out a new restaurant in the city I'm in (I love food!). One of my specialties is time management for organizations, executives and employees. The reason I started this blog with Aaron is that I love sharing my knowledge with people and helping them become a better person. This blog is a footprint I want to leave behind and I hope you get a lot of value out of my articles. Feel free to get in touch with me anytime!

I really want this.book! Just quit my job recently to try and chase my dream of having my own architectural studio. There are happy moments and.sad.moments tho. Times when I just canthelp but feel lost. I know that having this book will not only be a saving grace, but a pretty addition to my future library! (Which I’ll design and prolly publish on behance!:))

Posted by Paul  | September 3, 2013 at 8:52AM |

This may be just what I’m looking for in “self-help”. I want so much more than a GTD, prioritize my day strategy. I like idea of considering creativity in my daily routine.

Posted by Mike  | September 3, 2013 at 9:13AM |

Managing my day is one thing I do every day. Might this book allow me to be more efficient?

Posted by Mike  | September 3, 2013 at 9:35AM |

Would be a great addition to my personal productivity library!

Posted by Vickie  | September 3, 2013 at 9:36AM |

I need all the help I can get!

Posted by Caroly  | September 3, 2013 at 9:36AM |

I know I have a lot of potential and I am researching ways to unleash what is brewing…I would appreciate this opportunity to learn from the experience of these subject matter experts.

Posted by Michael  | September 3, 2013 at 9:36AM |

I tend to be better a big picture things than the day to day workflow. I think this will help me find the rhythm and get more done.

Posted by Austin  | September 3, 2013 at 9:37AM |

Love to get the perspectives of how others are managing and blend it into something that works for me

Posted by John Svirsky  | September 3, 2013 at 9:38AM |

harmonizing the minds, but taking care of the clutter, I can allow my creative mind to flow and open myself to my inner inspiration. Hope it is a good, look forward to reading it. So is my creative mind.

You guys rock, keep up the great flow.

Posted by val dering rojas  | September 3, 2013 at 9:38AM |

I need this book to once and for all, end my struggle with daily organization!

Posted by T  | September 3, 2013 at 10:07AM

As a professional musician I’m constantly figuring out the different modes of when I’m a freelancer and when I’m self-employed, and switching between wearing these various hats. I’ve started to implement GTD with OmniFocus in my daily life three months ago, and am loving it. I’d love to get some further perspectives on optimizing my workflow and working towards my longer term perspectives. This book looks like it would be ideal for that purpose.

Posted by Tomek Obirek  | September 3, 2013 at 9:40AM |

Love Asian Efficiency.
Would like to read this recommended book by them.
I struggle everyday to be more productive at work and home.

Posted by Juan Barrios  | September 3, 2013 at 9:40AM |

I’ve donated this book into our work library for my coworkers to use and it’s so popular I don’t think I’ll get to see it again any time soon. I would love to win my own copy to use again. And probably also put it into circulation once I’m done with it again.

Posted by Matt  | September 3, 2013 at 9:40AM |

Managing my day is one thing I really struggle with between normal fire drills and trying to plan anything. I would love to read this book!

Posted by Jordan  | September 3, 2013 at 9:45AM |

A book with so many famous people contribute is a must read. I want to grow my creativity and learn how to manage my day to day routine. I’m juggling a full time and a part time job now. Hope to get the most out of the book. Of course I have to win it first :)

Posted by Pete  | September 3, 2013 at 9:45AM |

I would love being more efficient… Routines are where I struggle… And sticking to a system

Posted by Liz  | September 3, 2013 at 9:46AM |

I’m drowning in a sea of inefficiency and this looks like a good buoy — or rather swim lesson :)

Posted by Derek  | September 3, 2013 at 9:46AM |

I’ve heard great things about this book and I’m always looking for new productivity techniques to add to the tool kit.

Posted by David  | September 3, 2013 at 9:49AM |

OK, here’s the real reason… I love books and Manage Your Day-to-Day is on my “must-read” list!

Posted by Lawrence  | September 3, 2013 at 9:51AM |

I am in the midst of a major life change process: I have started my own consulting firm, moved house and ended a long-term relationship. As I sat down to take stock of where I am and where I’d like to be, I realized how inefficient I have been in applying my time and resources (skills) in all life areas. In my quest to improve on this, I stumbled across Asian Efficiency and since then, I haven’t missed a post. The real life application of the advice you provide has completely changed the way I work and play and I love it!

So, if you tout this book, I consider it to be a “must read”!

Keep up the amazing work!

Posted by Larry Sterzinger  | September 3, 2013 at 9:52AM |

I find these types of compilation books more useful than a long book by a single author. Here each author’s message is condensed down to its bare bones or viewed from a different angle. Plus it talks about the links between ideas and the actions to getting them accomplished which is an area I frequently struggle with.

I look forward to reading it.

Posted by Nhu  | September 3, 2013 at 9:53AM |

There’s a lot of changes I want to make this year, and I think that this book will help me with that!

Posted by Leonardo  | September 3, 2013 at 9:53AM |

Being always late on my to-do’s, I hope I’m not late for this give-away…

Posted by Rosemary Nichols  | September 3, 2013 at 9:54AM |

This would be an amazing gift to start off my year. I am a manager in education and this is the beginning of the year for us!

Thank you so much…

Rosemary

Posted by Mark Pearson  | September 3, 2013 at 9:55AM |

I have read every book you guys have recommended and would love a chance to get this one from the Masters. Thanks for all that you guys share it has been very helpful to me and my loved ones.

Posted by Ali  | September 3, 2013 at 9:57AM |

I read your blog religiously as well as your newsletter to try to become more Asian Efficient! I have already implemented many of the routines that you suggest; my favorite is the ‘Morning Routine.’ I think I should get a book because I would like to read another one of the books that you feel are important to productivity and efficiency. Thanks!

Posted by isismasoud  | September 3, 2013 at 9:57AM |

I love that the book has so many different contributors so we can get a taste for the many different styles of how to get the most out of life.

Posted by Ally Kingston  | September 3, 2013 at 9:57AM |

In a bid to get to Asian Efficiency-style Inbox Zero, I recently unsubscribed from every email newsletter known to man – barring 99U and Asian Efficiency. True story! It’s fate. With this book I think I can even see Inbox Negative on the horizon!

Posted by Bob Minarcin  | September 3, 2013 at 9:57AM |

Two reason. Zombies need brains and Bob need ways to manage a life going in too many directions. Second, my twitter name should count for something! It’s hard to be a bass ass professor when I can’t manage my day-to-day.

Posted by Sridhar  | September 3, 2013 at 9:59AM |

I currently have lots of issues focusing on my work and I believe this book can be my savior.

Would be happy to get his one.

Posted by Chad Daniels  | September 3, 2013 at 10:00AM |

I am getting going on a few start ups to get myself out of the 9-5 daily corporate grind that I’m at right now. This might be the book that gives me a few more ideas to make that dream a reality!

Posted by sandros  | September 3, 2013 at 10:00AM |

I d like a copy of manage your day book cause I. Know I can improve my organizational strategy by implementing day by day to start this habit.the authors you mentioned and their contribution makes it valuable book to implement.so far I’m still in process of organizing things in my life and a free copy would be very beneficial and to good use for me right now.this site and the concept of effieciency is new to me so this can be of guide.I’m new and not like I have a rack full of books..so I want this book.thanks guys!

Posted by Mystie  | September 3, 2013 at 10:01AM |

I enjoy reading Babauta & Gretchen Rubin, and I am very interested in what practices all these authors distilled as the most valuable. Thanks for doing the giveaway!

Posted by Cody Carter  | September 3, 2013 at 10:01AM |

I literally just put this on my “to read” list yesterday so it must be fate!

Posted by Walter Willis  | September 3, 2013 at 10:01AM |

I have never been able to implement GTD fully and I have tried since 2002 shortly after the hardcover book came out. Reason: it doesn’t work well for creative people who need less structure. Since this book has many contributors who are creatives, I think it might help me out a great deal. I would love to get a free copy. Thank-you.

Posted by Martin  | September 3, 2013 at 10:01AM |

Looking forward to it….

Posted by MH  | September 3, 2013 at 10:02AM |

I want this book because I need that first step to manage my day-to-day. :-)

Posted by John Lai  | September 3, 2013 at 10:06AM |

I have been trying to implement GTD but having trouble following through. This book may give me a new approach or ideas to incorporate into GTD’s system.

Posted by KAMMs  | September 3, 2013 at 10:06AM |

I want this book. Really, I need this book. Lately, through my morning meditations I’ve been asking for more confidence, discipline, motivation, & focus as I pursue my passion and a career in art. I’m a big reader and find that most of what I consume are “self-help” style books, even if they don’t exactly fall into that category. Introspection allows me to grow and improve myself in a multitude of ways. I’d love to add this book to my collection and experience the ways it can help me, help myself and others.

Posted by s f  | September 3, 2013 at 10:07AM |

I hope I win.
Thanks for holding this drawing.

Posted by Matthew  | September 3, 2013 at 10:08AM |

I want to win this book! Currently I’m tearing down my old routines and trying to build new ones. This book sounds like an excellent resource.

Posted by Alejandro Bendersky  | September 3, 2013 at 10:12AM |

I would love the book! I have a billion problems organizing myself on a daily basis, especially considering I work and study at university plus extra activities. Thanks for the giveaway!

Posted by Brooke Hender  | September 3, 2013 at 10:12AM |

Whilst falling out of bed, staggering towards the kitchen, desperately grinding coffee beans and trying not to burn myself on the kettle as I pour water into my Aeropress might not change I’m sure that I’ll use the advice in the book to then do something useful. And if I don’t win it then I’ll never know….

Posted by John Winstanley  | September 3, 2013 at 10:13AM |

The day-to-day is the battleground of good productivity – win these battles and you will win the war. Let 99U help you get the skills you need

Posted by Michael Gilstrap  | September 3, 2013 at 10:13AM |

In the process of updating my personal management system. Long-time GTD practitioner. Implementing AE techniques, but especially the modified Agile Results techniques. I am certain this book would help me. Thanks for the opportunity!

Cheers,

Michael

Posted by Ana  | September 3, 2013 at 10:15AM |

Well, I’m very interested in improving my productivity, but that isn’t why I want the free copy.
Every person has this friend crazy about books, not only reading, but also giving them as gifts, or borrowing, or just abandoning them in the subway so a stranger can pick them up.
I am that crazy friend. I’ll read this book, yes. And after reading it, I’ll write a note inside the book saying “please don’t keep this book after reading it, give it away and spread the knowledge”. Maybe I’ll give it to a close friend, or to a random person in a cafeteria. Who knows?

Posted by Ben  | September 3, 2013 at 10:16AM |

I would like to win this book because I have recently started working in a high pressure manager role and I am struggling to maintain a steady rhythm in the work that I do. I hope that the book can provide some great insight into things I need to work on. I love your blog, I have put your email processing method to the test with good results.

Posted by Carsten  | September 3, 2013 at 10:16AM |

…’cause I’m German and inefficient ;-)

Posted by Brian Kwong  | September 3, 2013 at 10:17AM |

Hey guys, how is it going :)
I want the book because working at home is the toughest place (well beside if I try to work next to the beach) to get stuff done. I want to get stuff done then start working by the beach, then I will really need this book lol

Posted by Bob Lustig  | September 3, 2013 at 10:18AM |

I could definately use a lot of help manging my day. Still totally unorganized despite much effort.

Posted by Oliver  | September 3, 2013 at 10:19AM |

I want this book because I’m starting out on my own for the first time ever, and my time-management skills are underdeveloped. It’s make or break time for me, and I’d love the help to make sure it’s the former rather than the latter.

Posted by Peter  | September 3, 2013 at 10:19AM |

If I had this book, I could build a routine that includes actually reading it. That would be very cool.

Posted by Farooq  | September 3, 2013 at 10:19AM |

I’m a hard worker. The hours on the clock and everybody around me can attest to this. Yet, I always get the feeling that I’m not getting enough bang for my buck. I often try to figure out where I might be going wrong but there’s nothing like an expert laying it out for you. So, yeah, would love to get a copy.

Mandatory side note: Asian Efficiency rocks.

Posted by April Bell  | September 3, 2013 at 10:20AM |

I would love this book. As a business owner who travels, and a mother of an (almost) 3-year old, “managing my day” feels a little out of control. Hopefully, this would provide some fresh thinking ….and motivation for implementing!

Posted by Michael  | September 3, 2013 at 10:22AM |

Looks like a great book, would love to have a copy.

Posted by John Church  | September 3, 2013 at 10:23AM |

I have achieved many of the goals in my life. I’m semiretired and moving into the next phase. My to do list is down to 18 items and that includes everything. So Asian efficiency, OmniFocus, and David Allen worked very well for me.

Therefore I am always trying to be open to any ideas And chips that would make My life even more efficient.

One thing that would make a difference in the Toronto area if we had a Meet up group

Posted by Alex  | September 3, 2013 at 10:25AM |

I have my systems setup and my schedule set, but what I lack is FOCUS! Hopefully this book helps in making sure I can do the work when the time comes!

Posted by Gerrit Kruijer  | September 3, 2013 at 10:25AM |

If it’s recommend by you it will be a pleasure to read and gives me help with things i would like to accomplish

Posted by Simon Quantrill  | September 3, 2013 at 10:27AM |

This book is black and red, this is my fav non-colour and colour scheme, therefore it will look perfect on my desk amongst normal desk colours. It will stand out and draw me to read the contents….it’s been a long day my mind is frazzled ;)

Posted by Ayesha  | September 3, 2013 at 10:31AM |

You know how you’ve read all the right things to do, but can’t seem to just do them? Well that’s me. I read your blog and many others, I have all the right information. Now all I need is the push. Pick meeee to win!!!!!

Posted by Michael  | September 3, 2013 at 10:31AM |

I would love this book. I am in the process getting my company of the ground and I know that the info in this book would be invaluable.

Posted by Rose Guo  | September 3, 2013 at 10:31AM |

I am a university student (go engineering girls!), having a busy schedule with my part time job and homework is always pushing me to my limits :( and I know that life will not get easier, thus having strong self management skills are imperative and best practiced early! I love reading all the newsletters from you, and ‘Manage your Day to Day’ is exactly what I’m hungry for: more self development strategies! Winning this book will enlighten my day…for a long time. ^_^

I want to set up my day to day routine. I’ve already read a lot of books on your reading list, if you think its a good book, then I need to read it!

Posted by Daniel  | September 3, 2013 at 10:33AM |

I shamelessly admit that I really like free stuff and that’s why I’m posting this comment.

Posted by Emile  | September 3, 2013 at 10:34AM |

I first heard about this book a year or so ago, I managed to convince someone to get me the audio book as it was cheaper than the hard-cover, but it has helped me and a close friend get out of a nasty rut and start managing our day-to-day better. The book wouldn’t be for me but for her as her birthday is this on the 9th September. I think it would make an awesome present :)

Posted by Katherine  | September 3, 2013 at 10:41AM |

I would love to have this book so I can learn from the contributors’ experience. Books like this are great for finding “Tried and True” methods that people can make work for them. I’m a Project Coordinator and finding ways to make my work more efficient is always a benefit :)

Thanks for offering this contest and all the great work you do!

I dig all of those contributiors plus the 99U guys as well. Would love to read through what they put together. -CB

Posted by Jana Turogina  | September 3, 2013 at 10:46AM |

I reeeeaaally need a book like this to help me manage my busy schedule everyday and stop procrastination of important tasks. I like to read and do my own notes in the book (highlighting etc.) so it would be ideal. Oh, and this could be a lovely present for my 21st birthday on 30 September lol.

Posted by Chris Schiffhauer  | September 3, 2013 at 10:48AM |

I would love to add this book to my reading. Asian Efficiency has become a daily coach for me, challenging me with new ways to up my productivity and reach new heights of my professional and personal output. This book would be a great complement and help solidify the gains AE has been helping me make.

Posted by Teresa Barsanti  | September 3, 2013 at 10:53AM |

I would love to have this book. As a mom, Girl Scout leader, school volunteer, and business owner I’m finding it really difficult to manage my time. I just discovered 99U a few weeks ago and already their advice has really helped me. I can only imagine how much the book would help me.

Posted by Anne  | September 3, 2013 at 10:54AM |

I would love to win this book and put its principles into practice!

Posted by Steph  | September 3, 2013 at 10:55AM |

Ultimately my long term goal is to be an inspirational leader, not famous or powerful, but encouraging and enabling others to achieve their potential. I’m early in my career though and there are many skills I need to accomplish first and ‘Managing my Day-to-Day’ is definitely one of them. I’d love the opportunity to read this book and share its lessons with others in my company.

Posted by jfong  | September 3, 2013 at 10:56AM |

I’ve read tons of theory and practicals over the years and I’m just curious to see how the principles are laid out to used in a day-to-day basis which is where I probably stumble more often.

Posted by Brian  | September 3, 2013 at 10:57AM |

I am a productivity geek…Love the blog and would love to read the book

I seriously need to get my shift together ;)

Posted by Steve Daly  | September 3, 2013 at 11:10AM |

This book codifies all the action steps that I need to take. The only way that I can be successful is if it is set out in front of me.

Posted by Bernie Anderson  | September 3, 2013 at 11:12AM |

I’d like this book mainly because I have not read it and it looks like it would be quite helpful.

…and I live in Asia. Asian Efficiency, you know.

I just quit my job and starting my own ‘company’. Was extremely blessed by Making Ideas Happen, and this latest book would be the perfect how to for me as I’m figuring out the day in day out stuff as we speak! I need this book :-)

starting school with econ and could use some more tips!

Posted by David McGuigan  | September 3, 2013 at 11:18AM |

I’d like this book because I’ve gone to the last two 99u conferences and it was very transformative stuff.

Posted by Michael  | September 3, 2013 at 11:21AM |

Maintaining a focused routine with all the competing priorities of life is definitely an ongoing challenge. Would love to see what new ideas this book offers.

Posted by Chris Muth  | September 3, 2013 at 11:21AM |

Since I started using Omnifocus and an adapted version of GTD, my day to day life improved tremendously and my mind has freed up.

AE has given me some great tips and tools to shapen up even more, though complacency seems to be the perpetual enemy.

I would love this book for some more additional ideas which I might adapt and exercise.

Thanks for a great blog and website.

Posted by K Schutz  | September 3, 2013 at 11:22AM |

My greatest leaps in learning and understanding have come from comparing the differences among authors and their implementation of principles. To have so many viewpoints on one subject sounds invaluable!

Posted by Shinji  | September 3, 2013 at 11:25AM |

Would like to read it. I am planning to develop an App to eliminate my procrastination and want to get some hint from it.

Posted by Reesha Dyer  | September 3, 2013 at 11:28AM |

I would like the book because I am starting a new term, and would like to start it with some kind of plan of being productive.

Posted by Jeff Causey  | September 3, 2013 at 11:30AM |

Would like this book so I stop surfing around to free giveaways instead of being productive!! :-)

Posted by Mathias Rhein  | September 3, 2013 at 11:34AM |

this book pinpoints the most difficult! I’d love to have some perspective on the oh-so-often relived cycles of getting it done and being done ;-)

Posted by Davidson  | September 3, 2013 at 11:35AM |

I want this book because I want to learn how to better manage my time as a father, employee and creative person.

Posted by B Jitu  | September 3, 2013 at 11:39AM |

In todays time the performers are short of only one thing ..no not buyers ..short of time . Rest all things they can achieve with their expertise. Anyone showing how to get 25 hours in a day is….most sought after .

Posted by Abdur Rahim  | September 3, 2013 at 11:42AM |

I want this book because the book cover looks cool and I’m judging it by its cover!

Just kidding of course :)

Any advice and reminders from the pros on becoming a stronger individual in personal life as well as with others is previous.

Posted by Angela S.  | September 3, 2013 at 11:46AM |

I would be most thankful if I were to be chosen to receive this book :) Since stumbling upon your blog a couple weeks ago, AE has not become my all time favorite blog! “Clear to neutral” and “eat the frog” have become new phrases around my house. After taking time out of my personal life to care for a loved one, I’m now in the process of getting back on track — which means oodles of paperwork and a year+ of catching up to do, both personal and in my business. I love your tips and am so grateful that you share! This weekend I made it halfway through going paperless (yay!) and I strive daily to improve my routine and efficiency. Thanks so much guys, keep up the awesome work!

Posted by Gina  | September 3, 2013 at 11:48AM |

AH. Totally need this. I’m a Millennial working on constantly improving myself, but that generational ‘characteristic’ of being easily distracted definitely applies to me. I get my work done, but I’d like to streamline that process.

Posted by Samuel Ma  | September 3, 2013 at 11:50AM |

because I love reading books like these!

Nine out of ten times my day manages me. I come into the office with a set of plans and goals, and then I open up my email and start listening to voicemail, and talking with people, and going to meetings, and pretty soon everything I want to do has been pushed aside as I move into responsive mode instead!

Posted by Tina Lane  | September 3, 2013 at 12:19PM |

Sounds like it will be a good read.

Posted by Eleni  | September 3, 2013 at 12:22PM |

I would love to have this book. I am a PhD student living away from home and I am a wife and mother as well. I would love to have a book to help me manage my day to day and put more routine into my life.

Posted by Josh  | September 3, 2013 at 12:32PM |

This is honestly one of my favorite books. The whole thing is just so packed with good advice, you can’t read a single page without getting something out of it. I got it from my library a few months back, but I would love to one day own a copy of my own.

Posted by John  | September 3, 2013 at 12:39PM |

I’m trying to balance up doing creative work both inside and outside of my work hours, would be great to get some tips on how to achieve more focus and get more done throughout the day.

Posted by Johnny  | September 3, 2013 at 12:48PM |

I would love to have this book. Being self-employed comes with many caveats which take time to overcome. It’s terrific to get insight from others on how they do it.

Hi,

I found out about this site when looking up articles about sexual transmutation. While being successful at avoiding masturbation, I still find it difficult to create work habits. I’m a student at college, also working as an intern in a company. Two months I was also offered a promotion but I declined the offer, because I was afraid I wouldn’t handle it. It also happens to me that I keep postponing the work I should be doing right now.

Anyway, I think this book would really help me overcome many obstacles in work and other areas of my life. I’ve been reading a lot of self-help books, but very few of them had any long-lasting effect. I’m willing to give this book a try if I win :)

Have a great day,

Jan

After perusing this book’s contents on Amazon, I feel it would provide the reader with new possibilities in improving personal and professional productivity. I, for one, would be very interested in owning this book in order to add new information to my current skill set.

Since i’m freelance, it’s my own responsibility to manage my work, my time and try to get the best productivity in all this. In your blog and your nesletter I found a lot of usefull tips and tricks to improve my worktime, organization, habits and routines.
I want a copy of this book, because I think that would be awsome to have a lot of this lessons from various authors in one single place. Another reason is that I sill love real books more than any electronic books.

Posted by Selina  | September 3, 2013 at 3:05PM |

I’d love a copy of this book since I’m always looking for a unique perspective on how to execute on ideas. Also, I adore the life philosophies and works of many of the contributors of the book.

I’d love to have a copy of this book! It contains all the advice I need to keep my life from falling apart:-) I just graduated and I am afraid to fall into constant apathy because I still have a long way to go to reach my goal and live life the way I want to, so this would be a very helpful read.

Posted by Ken Burke  | September 3, 2013 at 5:11PM |

Our son is leaving for two years of graduate study at Oxford. He’ll be living in Berlin and commuting in for four events a year. This is the “big” move. After this, he’ll never live with us again, only be a periodic visitor. So I find myself in a place where, at 57, I am, for all intents and purposes, twenty-three again. I have the opportunity to reshape my life, to become who I want to be “when I grow up”, to reinvent myself to be truer to who the person I am at my core. To accomplish this, when our son leaves this Friday, I will begin a thirty-day period of reflection, introspection, and planning to start moving in a new direction. I don’t expect this to be a radical departure but more of a course adjustment. I’ll be adding new skills, cutting loose things that are no longer of interest or value, and plotting the path that will take me forward into a life as a a painter, photographer, and writer (essayist/blogger). I see the book as a valuable tool to help me as I upgrade the focus of my life and head down new and interesting paths. Exciting times!

Posted by Alisha  | September 3, 2013 at 5:14PM |

I’m juggling the craziness of a full time job and a part-time job like a mad person, at the same time as trying to establish myself as a freelancer/contractor. It’s simple: I. NEED. THIS. BOOK.

Looking to learn new skills and be more productive with my time to maximize my chances for success. I’m a very meticulous person that values quality over quantity but I do realize that my weakness is being anal towards everything often leads to killing your productivity in getting more things done. What we trade off for quality affects quantity in the long run.

. Secondly, I have found so many of your hints and recommendations helpful and do wish you’d been around when I was in school so long ago, or at least when I had children and could have accomplished so much more in my life! Finally, I’ve recommended Asian Efficiency to my tweeps and my blog readers because, well, it works!

I am a girl AND a product designer and I am exposed to lots of ideas all the time, which means that it is really hard for me to organize myself and pick only one to deal with at any given moment. I believe I lack boundaries as to my daily activities, maybe this book can help. Besides, designer + more creativity? It’s not really that hard to guess WHY I want it. Smile.

Posted by Niels Gouman  | September 4, 2013 at 5:11AM |

The name of the book makes me think that I’d love it. Big picture stuff is easy, en plenty is available for that.. But the day-to-day chaos, would be awesome to streamline that a bit more :)

I want this book for several reasons, really.

For myself, to learn new stuff, and improve my life.
For my blog, to share the new knowledge (pretty popular one in the Netherlands)
For my clients, to better support them
To give away (I always give my books away when I’m done with them)
And also because it looks like it’s not yet available around here

Thanks in advance! :)

I think this book will help me to go to bed with satisfaction for all the things I have acomplished.

I would love this book as I think it would help me a lot. As a blogger and photographer I have to be creative and manage my time well. I struggle with my routines and need something to get back on track.

I would love to read this book to get inspired with new ideas and tips!!

I am always looking for ways to make myself more productive. As someone who manages many employees, any extra boost and development makes a significant impact.

Sounds like a great book! From “The Power of Habit,” I know that I need more habits in my life to be more consistently productive, abd it would be great to get another perspective and additional practical hints. Thanks!

I would love this book. As a student in both law school and business school, I’m crazy busy and this sounds like exactly what I need!

Time is the essence and not managing it well means one is wasting the ONLY non-renewable resource in his/her life. Read quite a few books on TM but this not only offers that but would also help in sharpening my creativity which is what I require right now.

I have started a business and TM and Creativity will decide the success of the endeavor. I am so looking forward to reading and implementing the ideas presented in the book to make the most of my 24hrs.

It’s not so much that I want this book, but rather that I need this book. There are so many aspects of my life that are a daily struggle. I need to get more organised to unclutter my life.

This book should help me to be a better man

Posted by Peter  | September 4, 2013 at 2:27PM |

Does it also help me to find my routine, sharpen my focus and build my creative mind?

In other words – I’m in!

Posted by Pierce  | September 4, 2013 at 3:02PM |

Because I spend sooo much time wasting my day on tasks that really aren’t important to my well-being.

I’m trying to teach my council how to be productive. I think this book could help

I’d love to win this book! I just found out about your site a few days ago and it’s been really helpful helping me develop good habits and things.

I just left my full-time job for the great unknown of freelance / time off – basically stripping away any semblance of routine and structure in my life. I’d love to learn how to get the most out of my new-found freedom!

I want this book, it will help me to be awesome…

Posted by Jalong  | September 5, 2013 at 12:45AM |

I ‘ve seen Tony Schwartz included in the list of authors related to the book. After read “The power of Full Engagement,” I really want to learn more from him, even it’s just a review about how to apply his method.

I hope the book contain a great value from reviewing many great method for self-development. So in case I cannot have chance to win this, please tell me how to buy one (even in pdf format) and give me the price. I’m in Vietnam and have an importing company which has office in California, USA, so I can ship from USA to VN. (Anyone Vietnamese here? We can group-buy :D)

Thank you for your recommendation and useful information, Thanh & Aaron :D

I just wanted to fight daily chaos :-)

Posted by Anna  | September 5, 2013 at 6:05AM |

I wish to continue bettering myself as a person, and I think that this book could help me with that.

Teaching 150 hormonal teens a day can be really challenging. I would love this book to help me be at the top of my game. Both my students and I would thank you! :)

Posted by Bill Gove  | September 5, 2013 at 9:49AM |

Been following Thanh and Aaron for almost a year (I think?) Their insightful creativity has given me hope that I can stay on track despite AD/HD and my daily struggle to stay focused. In spite of many setbacks in my personal and professional life over the past year, they have always been there. Many times with personal response notes which was very encouraging in the mire of “stuff” they must have to deal with on a daily basis. IF THEY SAY THIS IS A GREAT BOOK – IT MUST BE and I need it! (Unlike a lot people these days, I actually read books LOL!)

+1 for book and +100 for Premium Posts (which I already purchased. I read half of it in about an hour. It felt like it was a personal email just for me).

I want the book because I already have a tattoo with that exact same title…

Posted by Jonathan Perry  | September 5, 2013 at 5:52PM |

duh, give one to a poor university student like myself :)

Posted by Carmi  | September 5, 2013 at 6:48PM |

I want this book because I think it would help me get past at least some of my procrastinating ways, which includes my propensity for using my tools (or lack thereof) to do my job.

Posted by Anna  | September 5, 2013 at 7:08PM |

To be honest, I’m just curious -.- I’ve tried my fair share of productivity and efficiency techniques and I still feel like a hamster running in a wheel = taking lots of actions with not much to show for it. Perhaps this book will make the difference …

Posted by Steven  | September 5, 2013 at 9:02PM |

Great job on the website guys! I want this book!

Posted by tim sprosen  | September 6, 2013 at 4:51AM |

This book has contributions from many people I admire for the fact that by finding focus they produce work of real value and would like to learn more about how they achieve this.

Posted by David Hill  | September 6, 2013 at 12:40PM |

Sounds interesting. I’d like a copy.

Posted by Julie Gray  | September 6, 2013 at 1:21PM |

Thank you for the chance to win this book! I’ve been wanting to read it for awhile now.

All the big goals are set, just need Time to get to them. The daily chores of walking the dog, go to work, do laundry etc. are in the way. I need this Book.

Well, everything started in March 2012. My life had a epiphany when I realized that my three last years as student in computer science were mostly a waste of time. In that moment I decided to take better adventage of the use of my time.
There’s where I meet AE. It really blown my mind! I started to read every case of study and tips about this cool new thing called “time management and productivity” in the blog.
After that I continued learning from AE’s newsletter and started to read more blogs and few books.
Now, more than one and a half year later I´m still learning more about this. I’m starting to give trainings about time management and productivity for entrepreneurs and social leaders.
So, that’s is why I’ll love to have a copy of this book. To spread the word over hundred people and generate a posivite impact.
:)
