“Believe in your Highlight: It is worth prioritizing over random disruption.”

I am actually someone who is very good at time management and I have always been asked how do you manage to do that. I was curious if there was a way to make me even better at that and that’s why I decided to read this one. I can say that the book was easy to read and kind of organized but it did not add much to my knowledge.

Make Time: How to Focus on What Matters Every Day | by Anant Jain | Anant  Jain | Medium

The Book introduces the above graph to make more time. Basically we have to pick a highlight and then focus on it and reflect on what we did. There are also ways to get energy throughout the day. The book has many small sub chapters explaining each of the points mentioned.

The Authors were against To-Do lists but personally these work for me. This book made me realize how boring my life is because it tries to convince the reader to stay away from things that I don’t do, just like watching TV (I almost never watch TV and the authors explained that the average American spends 4 hours per day watching TV). Then there are tons of chapters on email which I checked my screen time for and it amounted to daily 3-4 mins and I think those are not significant!

There is also not using Wifi on a plane but I have never been on a plane so that’s not a problem! I don’t wanna sound negative because there were a few things I liked as saying no more and doing few things to energize.

Summary: I think it is a well- written book but I don’t think I am the targeted reader, few of the points were irrelevant to me and few were too extreme for me such as the internet free phone! I think I took a few good things from the book which is the most important thing when it comes to non-fiction books.
