Recommended by Tim Harford in the context of another recommendation on the general theme “there is too much stuff, we need to simplify”, I picked up a copy of The Power of Less by Babauta.

The main message is: Don’t multitask. Focus one the few important things, do them first.

The book, however, is not for everyone. While the advice is (generally) sound it does not apply to everyone in all the different context that Babauta discusses. Though, this is not really a blemish. What I did not like was the rather repetitive nature of the various chapters.
