Can you recommend any book on time management?

Few months ago, I was exactly like this. I will wake up in the morning with so much energy and variety of things in my head i'll love to do. I'd be so elated about the day but in the end, I'll realize that I have not done as much as I intended to do and the day was a complete waste. I'll suck and hope on the next day.

The next day comes and surprisingly, the whole process takes a repeat toll on me. I realized that I had so much spare time but I couldn't account for it. I spent most of my time watching TV, surfing the internet and doing every other thing that spells busy without really engaging in any business. Carrying out so much activity without being productive. Being actively engaged in a thing or two doesn't mean you are productive anyway. I needed a change. I needed to tell someone my plight. So I called my mentor and explained the whole scenario to him.

He said one thing, "I'll give you 7 days to read a book by Brian Tracy: Eat that Frog". After 7 days, come back and we'll map out a time management plan for you. He actually handed the book over to me and I read the book in less than 7 days, after which he asked some critical tie management questions and it has since been different ever since.

Everyday, I wake up with a purpose and a plan for the day. At the end of the day, I check to see if I have accomplished all that I wanted to achieve for the day and surprisingly, I achieve between 85-95% of my goals for the day. It may not be great but it is definitely better than how it used to be before. 

Read the book, and most importantly, practice the principles therein.

Cheers, JI
