Never Check E-Mail In the Morning

And Other Unexpected Strategies for Making Your Work Life Work

Named one of the five best business books by Cathie Black, president of Hearst Magazines, in The Wall Street Journal

The New York Times bestselling author, Oprah's favorite organizing expert, and America's number one problem solver presents a revolutionary book. It will help readers achieve the seemingly impossible: boost value and job security without sacrificing personal life. Morgenstern teaches innovative "grab and go" solutions that can be processed in as few as fifteen minutes to dramatically improve performance and efficiency, including:
  • Beware of multitasking. Scattering your efforts makes for a longer day.
  • Dance near the revenue line. Making or saving money is where your greatest

  • Crunch your container. Shorten your workday by thirty minutes and you will
  • get more done.
  • Trust your truth. Never undervalue your unique self, skills, and point of view.

  • If you've ever wondered, Is it me or is it them? Julie Morgenstern's practical "inside out" approach will help you diagnose the source of each workplace problem and solve it quickly.
