In Leave the Office Earlier, Laura Stack explains the 10 basic factors - preparation, reduction, order, discipline, unease, concentration, time mastery, information, vitality and equilibrium — that can improve productivity, lower stress and save time in the workplace. A chapter is devoted to each factor, which, if applied properly, can improve your daily work experience. You can determine what Stack calls your “productivity quotient” by answering 10 questions per factor, and earn a cumulative score out of a possible 500 points.
Leave the Office Earlier is set up like a textbook but in an entertaining manner. The book is divided into sections so you can go directly to the areas that are affecting your productivity, causing you to work long hours at the office. If you are unsure where your problem areas are, the book is loaded with interactive quizzes to guide you in the right direction.
Stack discusses universal problems such as distractions, time-wasting habits, overloaded e-mail or poor organizational skills. She has created a sure-fire system that will allow you to improve almost every aspect of your life. It’s not just a system to help you work faster, but rather a way to work smarter, more efficiently and with less stress.
This is far more than some self-help book. Leave the Office Earlier is a progressive system that will help you be more productive in a way that will ease your stress. This is a must-read for anyone who feels as if they are living at the office.
