In my book, Bill’s Im-Perfect Time Management Adventure, the protagonist (Bill), faces a number of challenges that reflect the stuff that our clients deal with every day.
The truth is, I wrote the book based on the problems my clients have been struggling with, and how it all intersects with the use of new technology. The simple, quick fixes aren’t an option for most people, or time advisers. In the book, I tried to throw everything in Bill’s way that could stop him from improving his skills and therefore saving his job.
I wanted Bill, the main character in my book, to deal with the problems and challenges that most of our clients face. These obstacles became a composite of the typical issues I hear about each day, and the solutions he tries to implement are the also the ones that each of us sees with our clients.
He wasn’t all that special – and he wouldn’t have gotten very far without the help of Andre and G, who are simply proxies for time advisers in the real world.
WHen you read the book, try to understand the world that our clients live in – especially those who are already pretty savvy and have tried the usual remedies without luck.
