9 Ways to Get More Out of Your Day

Time to Ignore the Hourglass


  • I loved this article. It's one of my goals for 2009, to get into the habit of handling papers only once...I tend to look at them and pile them, then sort the piles into piles for filing in various places, then I file the piles...what a waste when I could have cut it down to one step. Some great ideas. - 12/25/2008 3:09:52 PM
    I had to chuckle over this article. God has been saying this for over 5,000 year. In fact, He has the solution to all our work-aholism; its called the SABBATH. The commandment says: You shall do no work, nor your sons or daughters, your manservant or your maidservant, etc..." Wow - a whole day to rest and enjoy Him and your family. Novel idea! I feel so refreshed after the Sabbath that I always get more done the next couple of day. Its also my off day on the diet and off the excercise machines. The muscles are ready to LIFT the next day. Start practicing the Sabbath day rest and see if it helps you too. PS; That means no shopping, no phone or TV or PC; all time and rest robbers. - 12/24/2008 8:02:16 PM
  • This is so timely with a new year about to begin. Constantly feeling pressed for time is draining. I hope to prioritize better in '09 and take care of those things first that are most important to me. The unimportant or less important can wait. - 12/24/2008 2:40:30 PM
  • I so needed to read this this morn! Timing is great! Time to work this into my plan for the new year! Thank you! Sue - 12/24/2008 1:27:13 PM

    So appropriate. Thank you for this awesome reminder of what is important. It is a great source of positive flowing thought processes. - 12/24/2008 12:42:46 PM
  • This is a wonderful article . It states so simple what we know but so often do not do.
    Flylady is great and a kindered soul . As for saying No I say it but need to work on conviction so people know I mean it :) I will keep reading this articlefor encouragement and inspiration ! - 9/7/2008 3:17:28 PM
  • flylady is great!!! You don't need a lot of time to do things.... do one thing, or take 5 minutes to put something back where it belongs, it really does add up. I used to think I wasn't an organized person or a planner but its really a skill that I need to work on. I'm an adult now, LOL. - 7/5/2008 1:31:20 AM
    Great article. I want to come back and read it again. - 6/7/2008 5:03:38 PM
  • The best lesson I ever learned was that No is a complete sentance! I don't have to explain, all I have to do is say No! - 6/6/2008 11:19:26 PM
  • Excellent article. Like CINDYYB, FlyLady has been a God send for me. The routines keep me focused on the tasks that need to be done. - 6/6/2008 10:45:59 PM
  • Great article. Unfortunately the big time drainers are my 5 year old daughter and work and I can't get rid of either of those right now. I'll just ahve to save time somewhere else. - 6/6/2008 6:43:56 PM
    Very timely article. Time management separates the 'Men from the Boys' I honestly think it is one of the most important gift you can give yourself. To quote the old saying:

    Do not squander Time, for that is the stuff Life is made of.
    I Do squander Time and it leaves me unfocused. This is the part of my life I am going to change next. PG. - 6/6/2008 1:19:54 PM
  • This is great information! Thanks Spark!! By the way, Flylady has been a tremendous help for me in learning how to focus my day on the important tasks, including time for myself. She taught me that the hard things you think take forever to do actually can be done very quickly and painlessly. Her method of simple routines has me going to the laundry room to do clothes and being shocked to find they are already done, BY ME!! Routines become an ingrained part of your day and give happiness and freedom. - 6/6/2008 1:12:35 PM
  • This article was very timely and has truly blessed me! - 6/6/2008 10:58:27 AM
    Thanks for his article, I already do most of these things but you gave me more ideas.
