In the book, Bill demonstrated an increasing propensity to seek ways to get better – to hack into his life with different gadgets and improvement efforts in order to improve. Ted also displayed this tendency, and so did Vernon.
You may be someone who either loves to find improvements to your life or loves improving your time management skills. Or, you may be like me, and you love both!
If you believe that everyone thinks the way you do, and are puzzled by people who have no interest in a kaizen way of life… well, you are definitely on the right page! Welcome to the club.
People normally write a book before they develop a bunch of resources for their readers. I went in the opposite direction, developing blog content, live programs, online training and most recently I have written The Bill Book.
At the very end of the book, G lets Bill know that the system he is teaching at RingCORE now includes Fundamentals, rather than Ladders. Also, the number has increased from 7 to 11.
If you are interested in doing your own assessment of your skills in the 11 Fundamentals, spend some time completing our online self-assessment for a low introductory price. At the end, you’ll have very quick snapshot of where your skills lie in each fundamental: you end up knowing your belt-level (White, Yellow, Orange or Green) in each of the 11 skills.

Special Reports, and Updates
For an explanation of some of the key ideas underlying The Bill Book, you can access my easy-to-read special reports. The first report was written for Seth Godin’s website, ChangeThis.com. The proposal for the report won the monthly contest on his site: it gained the most votes of all the proposals listed during that month. It’s called The New Time Management: Simply Focus on the Fundamentals and Toss Away the Tips. It covers the 7 Fundamentals that Bill defined in the book, including Capturing, Emptying, Tossing, Acting Now, Storing, Scheduling and Listing. An audio version of this report is available.
The second report covers some of the concepts that are most challenging to the conventional wisdom in time management. 8 Edgy Ideas from Time Management 2.0. When you read this Special Report, you’ll find the philosophy that Bill stumbled into creating in fits and starts, as if it were a finished product. It could stand as a document that he wrote to keep a record of the work he did from the start to the end of the book. You can also listen in to the audio recording of this Special Report.
