Where traditional time management ends, Beyond Time Management picks up. Taking the reader through Ten Adages to Organize By, the book unlocks the key to understanding how to achieve a more effective, more balanced life. Beyond Time Management is not about To Do Lists. In fact, in Beyond Time Management, readers learn why to do list are a major source of disorganization! This book is not about managing time. Time (at least mechanical time) can not be "managed": it literally marches on without us. Beyond Time Management is about managing values and priorities. In this book we come to understand why we fall into "priority dissonance" and persist in jamming up our mechanical time with things we don't want. Beyond Time Management provides the reader with the human "why" of organizing, the "why" that has been missing from all the mechanical "how to's". Because, as adage #10 points out, "A person who has a 'why' to live can deal with almost any 'how'."

For over 35 years, Jane Allen Pterick, Ph.D., organizational psychologist, has served as a senior executive and consultant to numerous companies and associations, including AT&T, Nextel, IBM, Xerox and Digital Equipment. Dr. Petrick was selected by Ebony Magazine as one of the 100 Best and Brightest Business Women in America.Review:
A true pragmatist, (Petrick) counsels against 'meddling yourself into a mess'. She has written a 'why to' book, not a 'how to'. Try ideas only if they promise to enhance the 'why' of your life. This is consistent with her underlying thesis that human beings has an innate desire to make sense. Her book makes a great deal of sense. --WIN, The Day-Timer Magazine of Achievement through Self-Management
