The best advice I ever got was this: You do not have time for anything. You MAKE time for what is important to you.

Great article... I actually just put the "just say no" tip into practice. I'm so over-extended right now and turning something down that would've eaten another 10 hours of my week felt so great.

Flylady is great as long as you actually get up and do the work. Not too much time surfing my bulletin boards and sites on how to get organized. LOL

After having several surgeries, where others had to shop for me, I found that I would really try to map out the route so there would not be any back tracking to find what I needed. I find that I continue to do this when running errands myself. Being retired and having far more time than money, time management really does not seem to be a problem.

What I do to manage my time a little bit better is I downloaded a free timer program to my computer and when I'm online I place it as like 1 hour and than it goes off.It sounds like a cuckoo clock and it dose not stop till I shut it off and when I do I reset it for 10 minutes and do a ten minute walk on my gazelle but I only set the 1 hour timer like 2 times a day so I don't get side tracked.I helps a quite a bit that way I know I'm getting in 20 minutes of walking.

I really learned from this I am horrible at managing my time and getting task done. I am at the last second trying to get things complete. This made a lot of sense!!

My favorite line from this article? "Perfectionism can be a form of procrastination". How true! I have to remind myself that sometimes "good enough" really is "good enough"! :-)

Time management...hummm. I just remember this: "I have all the time there is, there is no more, we all have the same amount of time...24 hours/day." My focus determines how I use the gift of time.

Thank you for the article - it puts things into perspective; especially the observation that we don't need to be perfect. And that a little planning goes a long way - I always get slogged down in the morning because I didn't take the time the night before to pack my lunch and other preparations for the day.

Agree about the part being perfectionist. Feel like a never-ending story fixing one tiny flaw after another. In the end, I try to be in between - check everything is fine and keeping things at the basic level.

(I'm not aware of that Malaysian culture, haha)

some great thoughts and suggestions ... thanks ... love the observation that we can't manage time --- "self management" what a concept!
