Will Collins, in his book Work Smarter, helps the reader better understand that it isn’t about working harder or longer hours. Mr. Collins helps the reader to understand that it’s about learning how to improve one’s time management, how to become a better producer, get rid of procrastination, and to reach the goals one has set in their life. The author quickly explains that it is up to the reader to change their viewpoint, and how to become the effective person they desire to become. No one can fix you or make you the best worker, rather it is a decision that each individual must make within themselves. Reading this book won’t change the reader; however, reading this book and exploring its principles and applying them to one’s life could radically change one for the better.

Author Collins gives useful ideas of how the reader can accomplish this concept of Working Smarter. Some of those suggestions include: using Evernote to record all notes in one location, or Drop Box so everything is easier to access while on the move. He suggests helpful tools to use concerning: mind mapping, notes, reading apps, goal setting, and much more. However, all of these fantastic resources won’t help anyone unless they research and find which ones work best for them and put those resources into action. By doing this, it will allow the reader to Work Smarter, not harder. Reading this book will challenge the reader in ways they haven’t considered before to become more effective at what they are doing.
