Manage Yourself in No Time

Tips to Fit More Into Your Day


  • The best advice I ever got was this: You do not have time for anything. You MAKE time for what is important to you. - 9/29/2010 3:38:42 PM
  • 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. - 9/29/2010 1:46:40 PM
  • 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 - 9/29/2010 11:32:09 AM

  • 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. - 9/25/2010 6:04:44 PM
  • 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. - 9/3/2010 5:17:24 PM
  • 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!! - 9/3/2010 3:10:46 PM
  • 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"! :-) - 7/30/2010 4:09:46 PM
  • 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. - 7/30/2010 3:38:47 PM
  • Some great advice.... thank you! - 7/30/2010 9:41:37 AM
  • 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. - 7/10/2010 10:57:04 AM
  • 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.

  • some great thoughts and suggestions ... thanks ... love the observation that we can't manage time --- "self management" what a concept! - 3/12/2010 1:01:07 PM
