  • Anything is worth a try to improve my productivity. 21 days to make a habit I gotta start somewhere and see what happens. I liked the points made here. Thank you
  • Is it just me, or does that make life sound overwhelmingly busy?!
  • IREMEMBERME
    Some good pointers there!
  • a lot of good advice... and some unrealistic stuff too most people I know couldn't afford 3 months worth of groceries, wouldn't have room to store them, and wouldn't remember what they had.. 2-3 weeks is more realistic...
  • Don't waste waiting time, Multi-task when feasible... These get me into mindless binge eating mode!
  • Procrastination is my biggest demon which I battle with...It's all about the baby steps!
  • KEMCNAIR
    I just started a full-time job, and I think it's going to be a while before I can get my rhythm going and work out a different routine. This was some good advice!
  • I have a lot of trouble saying no, and I just also put this in practice two weeks ago. I had four different events to go to two saturdays ago (bbq's, happy hours, etc) and I was very overwhelmed with having to make it to some of them. I decided not to stress about it, and stayed home instead. I did some homework during the day and was able to relax with my boyfriend that night and watch a movie. It was much better than having to rush to this place then that place and not enjoying any of the places due to the time constraints. I will need to learn to say no more often to plans, I always feel stressed because I have at least one thing every weekend (lots of birthdays in my family)
  • Another great challenge: Turn the TV off . Magically have at least 10 hours a week to do other things.
  • 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
  • I love "Fly Lady". She has wonderful ideas and suggestions.
  • 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.
