There is so much organizational information in Morgan Tyree’s Take Back Your Time it’s difficult to know where to begin. First off, this is not a book to rush through. It is a book to read, put into practice, read again, repeat.
Morgan discusses scheduling time to prioritize your priorities, organizing your day for maximum productivity, applying your strengths according to who you are, managing your calendar, setting goals which signal your intention, and breaking your time into three zones: green, yellow, and red.
The first three chapters encourage you to record where you spend most of your time and identify your priorities. The next three chapters build on what you recorded.
In the green zone, she suggests you focus on your productivity chart and work on your top three priorities with total focus. The yellow zone allows for interruptions and a little flexibility as you work while continuing to be productive. The red zone is time dedicated to recharging.
Morgan provides charts to fill out and follow while giving examples of her own schedules to see how she implements them.
If this seems like a lot of work, it is. That’s why I said it’s not a book you can rush through. Take Back Your Time is for those genuinely serious about becoming super organized, redeeming their time, and accomplishing their priorities.
Full confession…I am nowhere close to being organized.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell for a fair and honest review, which is exactly what I gave.
