Publisher's Summary

Do work that matters. Productivity isn't just about getting more things done. It's about getting the right things done - the things that count, make a difference, and move the world forward. In our current era of massive overload, this is harder than ever before. So how do you get more of the right things done without confusing mere activity for actual productivity? When we take God's purposes into account, a revolutionary insight emerges. Surprisingly, we see that the way to be productive is to put others first - to make the welfare of other people our motive and criteria in determining what to do (what's best next).
As both the scriptures and the best business thinkers show, generosity is the key to unlocking our productivity. It is also the key to finding meaning and fulfillment in our work. What’s Best Nextoffers a practical approach for improving your productivity in all areas of life. It will help you better understand:

Why good works are not just rare and special things like going to africa, but anything you do in faith even tying your shoes
How to create a mission statement for your life that actually works
How to delegate to people in a way that actually empowers them
How to overcome time killers like procrastination, interruptions, and multitasking by turning them around and making them work for you
How to process workflow efficiently and get your email inbox to zero every day
How your work and life can transform the world socially, economically, and spiritually, and connect to god's global purposes
By anchoring your understanding of productivity in God's purposes and plan, What’s Best Nextwill give you a practical approach for increasing your effectiveness in everything you do.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Matt Perman is clearly a very well read man in both theology and time-management. What this book is, is a culmination of a lot of other people's ideas into Matt's own system for working. The content is good, however, Matt's reading is quite irritating and as others have said I wish he'd hired a professional to do it. He also won't stop harping on about all he has done in his own career and struck me as quite big headed. I would recommend reading Covey's '7 habits of highly effective people' and Allen's 'Getting Things Done' and forming your own opinions. Leave this book alone.
