Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
You sleep (hopefully) for 8 hours. You work (at least) 8 hours. What are you doing in those remaining 8 hours of your day, and more importantly, what are the other 8 hours doing for you? To the bleary-eyed worker who doesn’t have time to stop and catch his breath, the idea of having 8 hours may sound absurd. If that’s you, this is your wake-up call. The Other 8 Hours provides a blueprint that will help you carve out more time in your day and find the inspiration to spend that free time in a more productive way. Whether you want to pay off debt, make more money, start a business, develop a hobby, write a blog, or write the next great American novel, Robert Pagliarini will get you closer to living a richer, more fulfilled life. In The Other 8 Hours, you’ll learn how to:
With anecdotes and inspiration from many who have taken control of their other 8 hours, plus hands-on tools for getting started, minimizing risk, and maximizing success, you’ll discover new ways to radically improve your life both personally and financially. Isn’t it time to recapture your time and your life?
- GET MORE TIME: Chances are you are overworked, overscheduled, and overstressed. There’s too much to do and not enough time. You can create hours of additional free time you never knew you had.
- GET MORE MONEY: Traditional financial advice has likely left you frustrated and stuck. Pagliarini introduces new, highly-effective yet unconventional strategies.
- GET A LIFE: In order to “get rich” you have to “get a life.” The other 8 hours ultimately determine your happiness and net worth.
"Just one simple decision--to become a cre8tor--is enough to change your life for the better. Robert makes the case why this is the best path, for all of us."
—Seth Godin, Author of Linchpin and Tribes
Pagliarini (The Six-Day Financial Makeover) refreshes a tired premise with a snappy style that helps readers prioritize their commitments and divest their energies accordingly. Simple exercises target “LifeLeeches,” insidious activities that suck up free time—video games, meaningless meetings, social media, porn, and (rather bizarrely) reading and carpooling—in order to dedicate those freed up hours to make extra money, develop more job-related skills, blog for cash, expand a creative or entrepreneurial venture, or simply engage in more fulfilling hobbies. A large portion of the book is focused on becoming what the author calls a “Cre8tor,” someone who does not just settle for a paycheck but creates their own financial life. Even readers perfectly at peace with their career and paycheck will find the tips and a companion Web site, featuring downloadable templates for time management and a “Goal Achievement Plan,” useful catalysts for further professional and personal growth.
"Most of us don't make great use of our 'non-work' hours. This book can help you change that. It's filled with great advice on how to devote those in-between hours to more enriching, energizing and rewarding pursuits."
—Daniel H. Pink, author of A Whole New Mind
“My many years as a productivity coach and educator have convinced me that the greatest gains in our lives are most often achieved because of small things that we begin to do consistently that are highly strategic for us. Robert's book is a treasure-trove of such "small things." He's mined the bandwidth of our day to day lives for the underused portions where real treasures lie. Very good stuff here.”
—David Allen, author, Getting Things Done: the Art of Stress-Free Productivity and Making It All Work: Winning at the Game of Work and the Business of Life
“The Other Eight Hours identifies universal roadblocks and limitations, then provides the reader with tangible tools that can easily translate to real world experience. Pagliarini shows us how to achieve a whole new level of happiness and fulfillment with a remarkable ability to speak to the reader in a way they can relate to.”
—Kim Barnouin, co-author of Skinny Bitch
“The Other 8 Hours soars with crisp advice, mind bending ideas and stories that will move you to action. The book captures the obvious self-empowerment opportunity we’ve been too busy to notice: You can own your life if you want to. Read it and take back the best part of your life.”
—Tim Sanders, author of Love Is the Killer App: How to Win Business & Influence Friends
