In Cut to the Chase, bestselling author Stuart R. Levine reveals 100 no-nonsense rules on how to be more effective at work and make the best use of your most precious resource: your time.

Just before CEO and consultant Stuart Levine appeared on the Today show to discuss his book The Six Fundamentals of Success, co-host Matt Lauer said to him, "You know what really drives me nuts? When people come into my office for a five-minute conversation and an hour later, they're still there! Why can't they cut to the chase?"

Lauer's question echoed the concerns Levine has heard from business people and top executives at every level: How can I get more done? How can I stay focused? How can I condense my workday so that I can become more successful and still spend more time with the people I love?

Levine's answer? By cutting to the chase. Successful individuals are the ones who make the best use of their time and energy. They approach each task with clarity, focus, and purpose. They prioritize. They don't allow others to waste their time. They understand the importance of refueling their batteries outside of work. In Cut to the Chase, Levine distills the expertise of hundreds of CEOs, leaders, and professionals into 100 concise, invaluable lessons about how to get to the point, stay on track, and be more successful in everything you do.

In an age where we spend more hours at work than ever before, Cut to the Chase is the indispensable guide for taking control over your time so that you can lead a happier, more balanced life.

Some of my mother's woven rugs, and a rug class

Some of my mother's woven rugs, and a rug class

My mother passed away on October 26. We brought back an old frame from the house, but the picture in it was, unfortunately, ruined. My wife decided to use the frame for a tribute to my mother, and her rug-making.

Mom developed the craft of creating hand-woven rugs from cloth cut from used coats. She exhibited her work in various venues, and taught classes on this craft. There is a photo of such a class as part of this graphic. She made a few hundred of these rugs, in sizes ranging from chair-seat size to nine or more feet in length. Some were round, some were elongated, and she used both a spiral and a spoke method of weaving. She made several hundred of these during her life in Michigan, where she and Dad moved in 1984, We, and other family and friends, have many of them, and she sold some, too.

My wife arranged a number of photos that were taken by one or more friends of my mother. I scanned them, tweaked them with The Gimp and Corel Photo-Paint, lined the scans up, and merged them into one graphic, in Corel Draw, then tweaked the result in Photo-paint. We have had the resulting graphic printed out at 14 by 18 inches, and, we hope, it will eventually be suitably framed.

I inadvertently placed two copies of one rug in the graphic. My wife decided that she liked it that way. She also picked out the border color at the top and bottom, which we used to fill out the needed dimensions.

There are larger sizes of this graphic available, but be warned -- this picture's original size was 14 Megabytes, more or less. Click on the "All Sizes" button just over the picture if you want to see them.

The picture belongs to a set -- click on the "Rugs by Martin's mother . . ." set in the right column, if you want to see a few other, more ordinary photos of her rugs.

I'll never do anything like this, I'm sure, but I'm glad my mother did, and that my wife decided to create this remembrance.

Thanks for looking.

Crocheted rug for my brother

Crocheted rug for my brother

I made two of these rugs for Christmas gifts this year. I bought pants from the thrift store, then cut them into a long strip (spiral up one leg, across the butt, then down the other leg) about an inch or so wide. I then used a size Q crochet hook to put them together. Although I saw this project in a book (I think it was Not Your Mama's Crochet), I didn't follow the pattern exactly.

The cutting was the hardest part of the project, and my hands got a bit sore. The crocheting went very quick! Some of the greens in this rug are from pants made of a fabric thinner than denim, so it was a bit easier. Each rug took six pairs of pants, at an average of $6 per pair.

I'll definitely be making more of these!
