Rezension bezieht sich auf: Effective Executive, The (Taschenbuch)
This is a good and clearly written book. One section that fascinated me was about being efficient with time-management. Drucker sites FDR's aide Harry Hopkins as being so sick during WW II, that he literally could only work a few hours every OTHER day. But that he got MORE work done than anyone in wartime Washington. Because he was efficient. Winston Churchill called him, "Lord Heart of the Matter." I know workaholics who emotionally deprive their families, but take a martyr-like pleasure in their workaholism. And, yes, sometimes they are very accomplished. But I also have a friend in the South of France who is filthy rich, and lives on a huge estate, and made all his immense wealth on his own. And he still works full time. And he rarely works more than a six hour day! And sometimes much less than that! After reading this book, I realized he is just very efficient. Another good book is Robert Ringer's MILLION DOLLAR HABITS. He relates how he used to be frustrated to see so many people work fewer hours than he, but make a lot more money. Then he read a study that showed the most successful people are not workaholics: they are efficient. THE EFFECTIVE EXECUTIVE lets you learn new and helpful habits.
