Are you constantly juggling multiple tasks and operating at 100 per cent or more? Do you feel you are permanently on the treadmill and can't get off? If you needed extra capacity for something urgent, could you find it?

In The 1-Day Refund, best-selling author and time management expert Donna McGeorge shows you how to recover an extra 15 per cent of your time--10 minutes per hour, 1 hour per day or a full day each week--to think, breathe, live and work. By creating more space, you'll discover a new ability to focus on what's truly important to you.

In this book, you'll also:
* Learn to achieve more by doing less and create more space across all areas of your life
* Stop being at the mercy of other people's agendas and learn to say 'no' when you truly don't have time.
* Develop your capacity to cope with change and unpredictability and rid yourself of that feeling of overwhelm

A fantastic resource for middle managers, supervisors, and those on the frontlines of work, school, sports, and family, The 1 Day Refund is one of the best investments any busy person can make.

With The 1-Day Refund, you'll be on your way to getting back a full day, so you can take advantage of any opportunity that comes your way.

The 1-Day Refund is the third book in Donna McGeorge's It's About Time series. With The 25-Minute Meeting, you'll learn to give your meetings purpose and stop them wasting your time; with The First 2 Hours, you'll find the best time of the day to do your most productive work; and with The 1-Day Refund, you'll discover how to give yourself the extra capacity to think, breathe, live and work.
