It’s also time for New Year’s resolutions! Over the years I have made many, and broken them by February. Hmm… Willpower? Motivation? Or is it more simple than that? Planning? Time management?
We all have 24 hours in a day. What do we do with them? Bly suggests that if you were to log your days, or even videotape yourself, you would be amazed at how much time you waste doing small unnecessary things. He lays out very clearly what you can do to improve your productivity, manage your time better, keep on task, and most importantly: value yourself, and your time!
Simple things, such as making a list, having and keeping a realistic schedule, prioritizing, having goals written down and clearly planned out, reducing clutter, organizing, delegating, and identifying time wasters, such as television, reading gossip, or worrying. (Do I waste time doing that? Nah…)
Does Bly know what he’s talking about? Absolutely. He’s one of the most productive, highly paid executives in the country. And even though I’m not a highly paid executive in a suit with my own personal office and affixed shower, every principle he lays out I can apply to my job as CEO and President of my home and family.
Now, if you will excuse me, I’m going to go rearrange my kitchen, clean out my closet, spend quality time with my kids, write more reviews, blog, make dinner, fold the laundry, and take a shower...with the door locked.
