  • 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.
  • Some great advice.... thank you!
  • 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!
  • this article was great...also try this website for great tips....
  • oops I meant to say Time Saving Gadgets...
  • Personally I believe that all those "Time consuming gadgets" have made us fat and lazy!!
  • I really enjoyed this article and agree with most of the suggestions, except for buying online. While I still do on occasion, I believe that it is better to buy from local stores, even if it's a chain whenever possible, as it helps grow your local economy.
  • Excellent article. Liked the idea of stocking up on items so we don't need the emergency trip to the store. New idea here.
  • It is a great article. Very helpful....I think some people read too much into it. Obviously there are many things that you can multi-task to and some you can't. You can decide. I do it all the time.
  • I thought this was a great article! I think some of the other people may be confused as to what the article is trying to say. I've found that I can more than manage a phone conversation while emptying my dishwasher - something I absolutely hate. It's really not all that difficult to do something involuntary (come on, how much do you have to think about while sorting laundry?!) while talking on the phone with my friends or mom. Honestly, the headset I've got for my phone is a god send because it allows me to have two hands free! The independence!

    I don't think the author is suggesting that you neglect your kids. All you ever hear people say these days is "I don't have enough time for that". I think a lot of the suggestions were very reasonable and in the least, good for some ideas for applying the same principles to your life, even if maybe not quite the same.
    I like most of sparpeople's article. This one I didn't like. It basically tells me to multitask whenever possible. I really do not believe this is helping with anything. I actually believe it makes things worse. I'm talking on the phone to my friends or family and writing lists at the same time? Shame on me! Obviously they're not important enough for me to give them exclusive 10 minutes of my time. I'm doing laundry while catching up the news, or: I'm catching up on the news while I'm exercise, I'm cooking while I'm getting other things done, etc.... This is just plain awful! I might t getting more done, but I'm getting it done with less quality AND it's going to stress me out because there's no time to relax anymore! If I'm preparing dinner, I'm preparing dinner. Fullstop. I want to focus on this, I don't want to jiggle lists and phones while I'm cutting my vegetables and think about the best way to prepare them.

    More and more people find out for themselves that they're too busy, coaches have found a new field of work with all that "do less, get more done; simplify"-strategies. I know I would get crazy if I tried to do it that way.

    Sorry, but for me this advice is just horrible in so many aspects.
