THE MANAGEMENT OF TIME by James T. McCay is written in easy to read and understandable language that presents practical methods for overcoming the time pressures of today and preparing us to easily handle the much greater time demands of the future.
Beyond Motivation by James T. McCay builds on the foundation of The Management of Time.
The Management of Time, if written in the 90’s, would be seen to be an insightful synthesis of the philosophies of Tom Peters, Steven Covey, Alvin Toffler, Stephen Hawking, Edwards Deming, Deepak Chopra and James Redfield.
It is amazing then to realize that this book was first published in 1959.
That year the Russians took the first pictures of the far side of the moon; computers used punch cards; Cadillacs had tail fins and Have Gun Will Travel was on prime time TV – Jim McCay was 38 years old.
In THE MANAGEMENT OF TIME James T. McCay delivers usable techniques for development in today’s hot topics: leadership, individual empowerment, value, holistic systems, information management, coping with rapid change, stimulating creativity, among others.
What’s more, this incredibly rich work is presented in an easy-to-follow, readable style.

INTRODUCTION AND APPRECIATION
THE MANAGEMENT OF TIME
THE MANAGEMENT OF TIME is structured in four parts:
McCay goes beyond superficial time saving techniques showing us the intimate relationship between time pressures and rate of personal growth. As he points out
If a man is chronically short of time he is probably being swamped by the growing challenges of his job.
If you study and use this approach to time management and self-development the results will be twofold:
- you will find that the lurking presence of time pressures will vanish;
- you will experience the exhilaration of continuing growth and expanding personal effectiveness.
BEYOND MOTIVATION provides us with additional lessons on how to achieve these goals.
