About the Book
Many people I met in the last ten years have a stressful relation with their working time. I was one of them, so I turned to different task-based time management methods in order to overcome this problem. I learned a lot, but only recently I realised that my approach is entirely different from all the methods out there. If time management is focused on the working time per se, on the contrary I am focused on the pauses between two tasks that everybody has during working time. This e-book presents my experience and my approach to the general public.
