Readings on time management and similar topics for graduate students

In Inside Higher Education, Kaitlin Gallagher offers some book recommendations for graduate students. I have taken a quick look at them and they all look useful to organize our time better and to have a more positive state of mind in dealing with theses and exams. Yet I always find the concept of success in this kind of book troublesome and contradictory. Success is about happiness and fulfillment but at the same time about having powerful management roles and playing an important role in society. Do these two definitions always go hand in hand? And isn´t part of our problem that we hope to have it all at the same time?
