There's just not enough time--or is there? Most busy executives feel like they have their hands more than full trying to accomplish their basic duties. But Wall Street Journal bestselling author David Horsager offers proven productivity tips that enable you to work so efficiently that you'll actually have time left over for what he sees as an executive's most important tasks--building trusting relationships with people. In The Daily Edge, you'll learn strategies such as identifying the key "Difference-Making Actions" on which to focus your efforts and setting a personal or even company-wide "Power Hour," during which you do not attend meetings, answer the phone, or reply to emails, creating the time and space to really focus and get things done. The key is to do lots of little things every day that make you so effective that you have enough time for meaningful interaction with your people. The thirty-five high-impact ideas Horsager introduces in succinct, quick-read chapters are easily implemented and powerful on their own. Taken together, they form a solid wave of efficacy that will enable you to get more done, keep your energy up, and make sure that you're able to honor all your relationships, both personal and professional.
