Chapter 1: Introduction

Welcome to Chapter 1. In this section, we will introduce you to Andrew and Lucy, both of whom have dyslexia. Andrew has a demanding schedule of meetings to attend, reports to write, and deadlines to meet. Lucy will spend the next nine months planning for a major event. Every day throws up unpredictable tasks, and the priorities are changing all the time.

This chapter highlights some of the unproductive habits that are easy to fall into when you don't have good systems in place to keep you organised.

Over the course of this module, we're going to introduce some really helpful principles that you can apply in your own way to suit your requirements. The most important principle is to find a routine that works for you, and in the remaining chapters we'll show you some brilliant strategies and technologies that will enable you to manage your time and your workload more successfully.
