My Time Management = My Life Management

“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing. A schedule defends from chaos and whim. It is a net for catching days....it is a peace and a haven set into the wreck of time; it is a lifeboat on which you find yourself, decades later, still living.”                    Annie Dillard

This website offers a range of strategies to manage time to lead a life of value, to experience the satisfaction of achievement and pride in your accomplishments.

So if you like so many of us feel you have inadvertently joined the new generation of techno-slaves, welcome! Or if you just want to get the very best out of your days, welcome!

Does this sound familiar?

  • Spending 2-3  hours and more reading and responding to emails,
  • Trying daily to manage up to 20 trivial low value interruptions,
  • Responding to seemingly urgent requests,
  • Attending too many unproductive meetings, 
  • Spending up to 45 minutes a day looking for stuff you've lost somewhere in a file,
  • Multiple handling your email, tasks, and documents,
  • Procrastinating on your big ticket items,
  • Waking up at night worrying about the things you haven’t done,
  • Losing sight of your long-term personal ambitions,
  • Concerned that your relationships need more time and care.
 

Your tactics can be found below. Start where you feel the pain the most. Each strategy you apply will strengthen your resolve to go further.

“You cannot start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.”
