Mayer is the author of Time Management for Dummies (1996), Winning the Fight between You and Your Desk (1994), and If You Havent Got the Time to Do It Right, When Will You Find the Time to Do It Over? (1990). He has also made a name for himself as a time management consultant, charging as much as $500 per hour to help busy executives clean off their desks. So it should come as no surprise that a major leg in Mayers journey to success involves getting organized. He recommends ways to eliminate clutter, organize files, and set priorities. He makes a major plug for the scheduling and organizing software program called ACT! Mayer also suggests that the route to success begins with having a dream and a plan of action. He stresses building relationships, getting to know the important people in ones life, and striving for excellence. Along the way, Mayer lists tasks, techniques, principles, and self-assessment exercises.
