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! Report
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) Report
Another great challenge: Turn the TV off . Magically have at least 10 hours a week to do other things. Report
The best advice I ever got was this: You do not have time for anything. You MAKE time for what is important to you. Report
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. Report
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 Report
I love "Fly Lady". She has wonderful ideas and suggestions. Report

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. Report
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.

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!! Report
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"! :-) Report
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. Report
Some great advice.... thank you! Report
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. Report
