Manage Yourself in No Time

Tips to Fit More Into Your Day


  • Additionally, I wish that when I was raising my children, I DID NOT MULTI-TASK! Sorry, but multitasking when interacting with others diminishes relationships. Oh why didn't I know this earlier? So this is one flaw in the article I don't find helpful. - 9/29/2009 6:54:41 AM
  • Time is something we can't make more of or save as put it into the the article says, we can only manage it, otherwise, it manages us.

    The quote I like best about time is that "time management is really about attitude management." - 9/29/2009 6:52:57 AM
  • I lean toward the idea that multi-tasking is a myth.. there has been alot written about the fallacy of multi tasking.
    I think we've just made modern life into a rat race where we all have to keep up with some ideal.... I am learning to just say no to many things & I now enjoy my family so much more, We;re not running at breakneck speed all week... it's great. - 9/12/2009 7:35:15 AM
  • Great article - this was the eye-opening sentence for - 'time really can't be managed. You can't slow it down, speed it up, or manufacture it. It just is. Time management is about managing yourself.' - 8/19/2009 11:11:37 AM
  • i like this article. Especially the inclusion of "Just say no." Sometimes the reason we even need to pack more into the day is because we are doing too much! - 6/26/2009 1:26:59 PM
  • I have READ MANY good books on time management. But for me, I like a little
    hectic in my life. The busier I am, the more I get done. By the time you get to be my age,
    ultimately, you are THE ONLY ONE that knows what works for you. - 4/27/2009 4:00:47 PM
    I have a rolling monthly menu plan with shopping lists for each week, week one contains all the meat, fish and other items I can freeze aswell as all the tinned goods which means I buy them online, leaving me free to do my accounts whilst waiting for the delivery man to come.
    It also means that we can look at the meal plan and know what we are eating rather than trying to decide.
    I have a shopping list pad on the wall in the kitchen and next to the calendar to jot down shopping needs when we run out of something. - 4/12/2009 4:26:39 PM
  • For those who use Microsoft Outlook email, take a took at the book entitled 'Take Back Your Life' by Sally McGhee. She's a productivity expert and her methods definitely allow you to decide how to control your time. - 4/7/2009 12:49:14 PM
  • I keep dry erase markers in my bathroom. It lets me jot down things on the mirror to add to a running shopping list or to-do list, and it's a daily reminder first thing when I wake up! It comes right off with a little window cleaner. - 3/30/2009 2:17:39 PM
  • In today's society multitasking is a must! Great article. - 3/30/2009 7:36:22 AM
  • One of my biggest time savers is using a typed grocery list(I emailed it to myself and print it out once a week or whenever I'm getting ready to shop). I cross off the items we don't need, jot down new items that are needed, and paper clip my coupons to it. - 3/30/2009 12:12:14 AM
  • Great advise and we all should plan ahead each day before the next leaving time for ourselves. To make sure we do have time to do our workout, eat right, and even pamper ourselves for even 10 min. if that is all the time is left. But we must take time to plan in the day for everything or we will be rushed and then it puts on stress. I know I have learned from this. Actually I am still learning from it... LOL - 3/28/2009 1:24:05 PM
    While some of the suggestions are very helpful, others like constantly multitasking would lead me not to enjoy the smaller things in life. There's no reason not to concentrate one what you are doing in order to fully enjoy it. For example, there's not reason not to walk through a park and enjoy the grass, flowers, and smell without planning dinner or who you need to call. - 3/28/2009 12:01:03 PM
  • Great article; I'll try it! Thanks Sparkpeep!! - 3/28/2009 11:44:04 AM
  • I'm already using some of these ideas such as stocking up on grocery staples so I don't have to make numerous lengthy trips to the grocery store. I am one of the people who must manage my use of time in order to get what I need to do done and have any free time at all. I'm finding setting aside time for myself to relax is even more important than all the lists and organizing. - 3/28/2009 11:41:03 AM
