Blog: Life Management

If you've ever seen the play "The Pajama Game", you know of the ultra efficient time-study expert, Hinesie, who sleeps in his clothes, shaves in his bed, and eats a raw egg mixture of oatmeal and orange juice. Even if these habits sound a bit extreme you have to agree with this line, "Think of the time I'll save." I suppose you could call this "pajama management".

Well, I'm not going to encourage those exact tips today, but I will offer some of the basics you'll find in most time-management courses:

·     Most begin with the "plan ahead" concept, which is to write out your goals for the day, week, month, and year.

·     Then "priorities" is a key word.

·     The 80/20 Rule is still popular in that 20% of your time produces 80% of your results, thus you'll want to focus on that 20%.

·     Learning to say NO is right up there in managing your time well. Too much time is wasted taking on too much.

·     Delegate is a biggie, too, and you should do so whenever possible. Avoid doing something yourself that can be done by someone else.

·     Group things by doing similar things together like returning phone calls all at one time rather than constant interruptions.

·     Finish what you've begun. Often projects drag on because there is no ultimate deadline. Set one and get it done.

A few additional tips beyond the basics might include:

·     Use email and fax for efficiency

·     Use a lightweight laptop on an airplane or wherever

·     Electronic date and data books and phones are available with beepers to remind you of important appointments

·     Cell phones save everyone time.

Making the most of today's technology can save much time and by making use of it you may just be able to work from home….in your pajamas!
