If there is one problem plaguing a lot of people in Nigeria and beyond today, it is lack of money. This is occasioned by lack of knowledge of where and how to actually get it.

This has even led to serious health conditions as many entrepreneurs have become hypertensive and their health state has defied medical solutions.

The Daily Drucker

Author: Peter Drucker

Publisher: Harper Business

Reviewer:  Goke Ilesanmi

 

A dream will remain a dream, not a goal, as long as there is no action plan in place. Even when there is an action plan in place, for a goal to be quickly accomplished, there is need for a timetable that must be seriously stuck to. A timetable contains what is to be done each day, week, month and year. Many people and organisations fail to achieve their goal just because they cannot effectively manage their time well. Therefore, the resolve of Peter Drucker to offer such people and organisations enduring textual solutions through this book entitled “The Daily Drucker”, with the subtitle “366 Days of Insight and Motivation for Getting the Right Things Done” is commendable.
