Présentation de l'éditeur

In a world of more-better-faster, the challenges and stresses have never been greater: too much to do, not enough time. And in an economy where worker talent (know-how, energy, attention, commitment, and creativity) is at a premium, everyone is trying to maximize personal productivity. In The Simplicity Survival Handbook, Bill Jensen offers the antidote you're seeking: a practical guide to doing less in a world of more, and making it count. From "How to Write Shorter Emails for Better Results" to "How to Use Your Mentor to Help You Do Less," Jensen offers step-by-step strategies, tactics, and techniques for communicating more effectively, setting priorities, and balancing the competing demands on your time, while avoiding the time-sinkers. He takes on corporate foolishness, walking you through how to be more productive and take greater control of your workday and, by extension, your life.

Format:Broché
Tout d'abord, la forme du livre est remarquable. Remplie de listes de points claires détaillant chaque méthode/astuce point par point, de dessins amusants et explicatifs, de graphiques et d'une structure conçue pour vous permettre d'en tirer l'essentiel sans perdre de temps. Ce livre est un modèle pour tous les livres de règles et même les autres tant il est une application concrète de ce qu'il enseigne et vous permet de composer votre propre livre adapté exactement à vos besoins.

Il évite ainsi l'écueil majeur des recueils de règles qui sont de type « j'y pense et puis j'oublie » puisqu'il vous recommande de vous concentrer sur les 4 ou 5 règles/méthodes qui vous semblent les plus nécessaires et vous fournit un guide détaillé pour les mettre en pratique. Il évite ainsi un autre écueil des livres de règles puisqu'il rentre en profondeur dans les sujets abordés ' les 300 pages sont bien remplies, la longueur de ce résumé en est la preuve ;) ' , et Bill Jensen assorti nombre de ces affirmations de résultats d'enquêtes, de sondages et d'études scientifiques qui ne font qu'assoir la crédibilité et la pertinence du contenu.

Quant au contenu, il respire justement l'expérience et la pertinence presque à chaque page; l'ensemble donne vraiment une impression de véracité ' le livre décrit les choses telles qu'elles se passent et non telle que la théorie les décrit, et de nombreuses idées sont tout simplement brillantes, même s'il faut souvent une bonne dose de courage pour les mettre en pratique.

... c'est le nombre de minutes que contient une journée entière. Nous devrions toujours garder en tête cette référence avant de choisir l'action à accomplir. A partir de ce constat, Bill Jensen livre un ahurissant panorama de pratiques concrètes et validées par l'expérience pour gagner du temps en entreprise.

Voici quelques exemples :
- Dans la 1ère section des gestes quotidiens : comment se préparer à communiquer efficacement en quelques secondes ou minutes, comment dire "non", comment aller à l'essentiel en 5 questions, etc.
- Dans la 2ème section sur l'avancement de la carrière : comment gérer son boss qui demande toujours plus de résultats, plus vite et mieux présentés, comment être le conseiller dont les boss rêvent, etc.
- Dans la 3ème partie sur les qualités du leader : comment améliorer les outils de travail pour ne pas faire perdre du temps à l'équipe, comment améliorer la performance de l'équipe, etc.

Avant de me plonger dans ce livre, j'étais sceptique : ça ressemblait fort à un ensemble de recettes made in USA. Autrement dit, beaucoup de bla-bla mais aucun intérêt pratique. C'est en lisant la chronique d'Olivier Florant sur son site "des livres pour changer de vie" que j'ai décidé de tenter la lecture: La chronique était positive, et je pense que c'était mérité!

Les conseils donnés par B. Jensen sont réalistes : ils vous serviront à coup sûrs.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 How to Flourish, Not Just Survive: The Sky Really IS Yours 19 janvier 2004
Par Robert Morris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
As I read this handbook, I was again reminded of Albert Einstein's suggestion that "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." For more than a decade, Jensen has been a staunch advocate of simplification (publishing Simplicity in 2001 and Work 2.0 in 2003 as well as several e-docs which can be easily downloaded from Amazon) but never recommends that essentials ever be diminished by the elimination of the superfluous. This is a key point. In this volume, he offers 32 practical ways by which to do less inorder to accomplish more. "I've designed a book of workarounds and shut-off valves -- ways to get around or stop the senseless stuff that comes at you every day." Presumably Jensen agrees with Stephen Covey that most of us spend too much time on what is urgent and not enough time on what is important. To say this is a "handbook" is to correctly suggest that it is a WORKbook. All of the material is valuable but not all of it is immediately relevant to a given reader's immediate needs. Hence Jensen's advice: "Pick (only) the three or four chapters that scream at you...Follow the steps in each chapter [and then] Rip out the Do-Less Toolkit pages at the back of the book...Tack `em up wherever you'll see them every day. Be one with the pages. Do less."
Jensen organizes his material within three Sections: Daily Rituals, Career Milestones, and Leader Essentials. In each, he provides a series of "How tos" in combination with appropriate metrics by which to (a) measure the current situation, (b) identify what must be done to improve it, and then (c) measure the progress of improvement initiatives. For example, the "Less-O-Meters" track Courage, Difficulty, and Yield. All this is much less complicated than I may now indicate. The greatest difficulty, obviously, is taking appropriate ACTION and staying with Jensen's program. The road to self-improvement is paved with good intentions but, too often, is soon abandoned. Most of those who purchase this handbook do so because they sense a great need in their lives to eliminate what is not essential to it. It is human nature to begin with high hopes and great expectations and then become discouraged or distracted. That phenomenon is quite common and illustrates precisely why this handbook will be of greatest benefit to those who need it most because they are most vulnerable to procrastination.
It will also be of substantial benefit to victims of what Jensen characterizes as "corporate crap." For example, quite some time ago, editors of a magazine (whose name I have forgotten) conducted a "Dilbert Quotations" contest. They were looking for people to submit quotations from their real-life Dilbert-type managers.
Here are some of the finalists:
1. "As of tomorrow, employees will only be able to access the building using individual security cards. Pictures will be taken next Wednesday and employees will receive their cards in two weeks." (This was the winning quotation from Fred Dales at Microsoft Corporation in Redmond, WA.)
2. "What I need is a list of specific unknown problems we will encounter." (Lykes Lines Shipping)
3. "E-mail is not to be used to pass on information or data. It should be used only for company business." (Accounting manager, Electric Boat Company)
4. "We know that communication is a problem, but the company is not going to discuss it with the employees." (Switching supervisor, AT&T Long Lines Division)
5. One day my Boss asked me to submit a status report to him concerning a project I was working on. I asked him if tomorrow would be soon enough. He said "If I wanted it tomorrow, I would have waited until tomorrow to ask for it!" (New business manager, Hallmark Greeting Cards)
I urge you to purchase this handbook and follow Jensen's suggestion that you skim-read it from cover-to-cover. While doing so, you will immediate recognize those portions which are of most immediate relevance to your own circumstances, both at work and in your private life. Focus on those sections initially. Precisely follow the step-by-step process which Jensen recommends. Because you will be embarking on an especially difficult journey, expect to encounter obstacles along the way, experiencing frustration and "combat fatigue" as you do so. Stay the course! For Dorothy and her valiant companions, there was yellow brick road for them to follow during their journey to the Emerald City. Whatever your own destination may be, Jensen offers this handbook which can become a yellow brick road for you.
Bon voyage!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 WOW! Buckle your Seat Belts. 13 mai 2005
Par GirlThinker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
What I like about this biz book:

1) Its fun and challenging "If your boss doesn't get it, and has a high likelihood of never getting it... time to say "goodbye". Pretty simple right?

2) Attitude of "You don't have to be a victim of corporate crap"... reminds me of a refrain I have heard from my husband when he talks about his day job "They can't even run their own life, I will be damned it they run mine"

3) Respect yourself more. Your time is valuable. Push back.

4) The complexity starts from within. From within my own company, within myself.

The How To Section(s)
Email
Scan incoming subject and author, if not relevant hit "delete"
Scan email for 1) action to take 2) deadline date.

In sending messages use the 3"x5" space constaint.

If it is simplier it is more likely to be done. Make it easy.

Remember the key: what do you want them to know, feel and do!

Presentations:
Turn the one point you want people to know into a question. Provoke conversations. Give everyone handouts. Use of Stories is a good thing.
1 hour presentation = 20 slides MAX!

Meetings Big Idea!! When you agree to chair a meeting approachit as if you have just been handed a portion of someones life. Because you have. Run a meeting like one that you wish you had been invited for.

Helpful hints 1) get only the important people 2) get the right people 3) define what success looks like 4) Mentally see the successful meeting 5) Put the objective of the meeting up front
6) Be passionate about the people and reason of the meeting.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally! A step-by-step guide for the real world 4 novembre 2003
Par Colleen Montgomery - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I work hard. I am a really good employee, and teammate, and manager, and mother, wife, and, and...And I just can't keep up with it all. No matter how hard I try, more just keeps coming at me. I was ready to crash and burn, then I came across this book. Thank you Survival Handbook, thank you!
Bill Jensen has found the best practices for shutting off the noise and stupid things that come at me every day and organized them into easy to use chapters. Among my favorites: How to Delete 75% of Your emails...How to Say No to Anyone in Any Situation...How to Deal with Teammates Who Pile It On...How to Deal with the Stupidity of Performance Appraisals.
His instructions are clear and easy to follow. I love his LessOMeters! Get this book if you're interested in doing less of the stupid things at work and more of what really matters.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Do less now! Simplicity Survival Handbook is a must-read. 6 novembre 2003
Par Keith Douglas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Bill Jensen's newest book is both an easy-to-read guide to leadership in tough times, and an immensely practical tool for focusing on what matters at work and in your life. For anyone who's followed Bill's teachings since his best-seller, Simplicity, this is the how-to book you've been craving! If you're not familiar with Bill's work, you're in for a treat.
Years ago, I attended one of Bill's workshops as his ideas were just forming. It had a huge impact on my life! What Bill's really about is helping you see the choices you have in life, and then making different ones. Everything he writes about, and is wildly passionate about, comes down to three core ideas: 1) Respect. Doing less of what doesn't matter and more of what does is about increasing the respect you have for yourself and for others. 2) Control. Bill has researched the biggest things that waste our time, energy, and talent, and most of them are within our control. We can choose to react differently, be differently, communicate differently. Bill's how-to's are all about taking back more control in ways that not only keep you employed, they enhance your effectiveness and productivity. 3) Time. If you practice even one-tenth of what Bill teaches, you will gain back a most irreplaceable asset -- time. Time to spend with your kids, or yourself, or others. While Bill writes about workplace issues, really he's giving you the tools to change your life.
Bill Jensen has a place among some of today's top business thinkers -- Jim Collins, Clayton Christensen, Noel Tichy, John Kotter, Peter Drucker, Warren Bennis, and more -- not because he thinks big thoughts, but because he thinks about everyday issues, like Studs Terkel does. He studies organizational structures, practices, tools, and processes, all from the perspective of the people who use them. That bottom-up view grounds his big thinking in day-to-day challenges and realities.
Get Simplicity to change your thinking, and get Simplicity Survival Handbook as the follow-up, how-to manual. Give copies of both to your teammates and your boss. They'll thank you for saving them so much time, and getting back control over their lives too.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One number you need to know... 16 février 2004
Par Marc S. Orchant - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I can't believe there have been ten reviews posted about this book and yet not one of them touches on the single most important thing Jensen teaches in this follow-up to the brilliant Simplicity. The most important number in business is:
1440.
That is the number of minutes you get to spend every day.
How do you spend yours?
When someone asks for some of your time (in an e-mail, hallyway conversation, phone call, meeting, etc.) ask yourslef how many of your 1440 are you being asked to invest.
Everything else in the book is tactics. Great tactics, don't get me wrong. But this is the one great truth in the book. Time is finite. You only get so much. Spend it wisely.
