  • Procrastination is my biggest demon which I battle with...It's all about the baby steps! - 12/6/2010 11:20:58 AM

    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! - 10/3/2010 8:39:43 PM
  • 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) - 9/30/2010 9:05:31 AM
  • Another great challenge: Turn the TV off . Magically have at least 10 hours a week to do other things. - 9/29/2010 4:24:00 PM
  • 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
  • I love "Fly Lady". She has wonderful ideas and suggestions. - 9/29/2010 9:50:25 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
