Time Table

3 x 4 = Time management. Manage three things: activities, spaces (home, office, desk and the objects within them) and information with four methods:

Evaluate

  • Activities-What do you want to do?
  • Space-What do you want to have?
  • Information-What do you want to know?

Simplify

  • Activities-Eliminate time wasters. Delegate. Learn how to say no.
  • Space-Eliminate things you don’t want.
  • Information-Select the best information.

Increase Effectiveness

  • Activities-Set priorities. Do the most important things first.
  • Space-Focus effort on the most important areas.
  • Information-Focus on the most important information.

Increase Efficiency

  • Activities-Determine peak time. Concentrate. Change habits. Set up systems.
  • Space-Organize the things you do want. Use prime space for valued and frequently used items. Keep things near where they are used.
  • Information-Organize the information you do want. Set up a file system.

I enjoy finding great information, combining it in new ways, and packaging it creatively. I'm highly interested in the areas of goal setting, time management, and skills to improve life.
