Twelve times a year? Do you find out about problems when your users call you to complain? One thing it really encourages you to be very strategic in your thinking, which also helps with achieving long term goals. Putting some time to think about the important long term goals both personal and professional was a real eye opening for me, since I pretty much discovered that I am spending a lot of time and effort on things that are not important from the long term goal perspective. I liked also the attitude towards the vacation time -- you know as a sysadmin you always feel guilty for taking too much vacation time in one lump, now I will feel guilty for not taking vacation time instead: I'm a system admin at my company for about 6 different applications.

I'm constantly barraged on a daily basis with requests for things from user end support to applying updates and changes and info on the latest tech so I am pretty busy. Not to mention when I go home I'm busy with my family and friends along with their tech needs. Nothing wrong with it, I love my work and what I do.

Additional Information

The book is a good investment for any entry or mid level computer scientist, not just systems administrators. The answer is time management. How to secure, privatize and recover your devices. See if you have enough points for this item. Sponsored Products are advertisements for products sold by merchants on Amazon. Thomas Limoncelli is a world-famous author and speaker on many topics including system administration, networking, and security. Lists with This Book.

I saw this book, read the little bit that's offered and it addressed my life to a T so I picked it up. Simply put, any sys admin can and probably needs this book. It is a little outdated in regards to some of the methods the author suggests using like a day planner or PDA. Just replace those with "smartphone" Overall the technics and methods the author talks about really can help you.

A lot of it is common sense and you'll realize that when you read it but if you haven't already thought of them and implemented them then this will help you. I've already increased my productivity and organization. I'm still working on dealing with how to say no and set the proper expectations. I've made a publicly accessible schedule of activities and direct people to it now when they have requests so they can get an idea of whats going on and how quickly I may be able to get to their requests.

This book was written from the unix administrator perspective and has a lot of reference to that side of computing. However, Windows admins can benefit from the methods the author talks about. It's a fun read and not dry and boring like most technical books.

Time Management for System Administrators

The flow is logical but also set up so you can put sticky notes in certain areas so you can reference them later and you don't have to read the two paragraphs before just to remember what the author was talking about. I highly recommend this book to anyone who does system administration but anyone who does other tech work. Even if you only get two things out of this book, its still two thing to make your life a little easier. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful.
