How to find guilt-free time for what you really want to do, and why it matters Do you feel like you're always busy, even as your to-do list continues to grow? Do you think you can't keep up as it is, let alone add another thing to your plate? An award-winning journalist, avid reader and new mom, Karma Brown dreamed of writing her first novel. But between diapers and tight deadlines, how could she? Like so many of us, she felt stretched taut and hyper-scheduled, her time a commodity over which she had lost control. For Brown, the answer to this problem was to rise earlier every day and use that time to write. Although she experienced missteps along the way, after committing to her alarm clock and an online community of early risers, she completed a debut novel that became a national bestseller. In The 4% Fix, Karma Brown reveals the latest research about time management and goal-setting and shares strategies that have worked for her as well as for others. Refreshingly, her jargon-free approach doesn't include time-tracking spreadsheets, tips on how to squeeze in yoga exercises while cooking dinner, or methods that add bulk to those never-ending lists. How will you use this one hour--only 4% of your day--to change your life?

This book is far from being a talk about getting up early and working on your projects, it is not a research report or something similar. Karma Brown just shares with you her experience on how this discipline helped her have a successful writing career. She gives you examples of others who also achieved her goals and strategies for starting her own 4% project.
Personally, I liked the book, I learned the importance of giving your projects the priority they deserve, because in the end you are the only one responsible for making those happen.
