Time Management


By far, my biggest weakness: Time Management.  Thus I still have a to do list a mile long and I’m blogging.  That being said, I have come a LONG way in the past couple of years.

I recognize, though, that it is something I have to work at and probably always will.  Especially when it comes to the minutia.  I just don’t seem to be naturally wired for all the details.  I wanna dream, create, think down the road.  Not schedule, budget, and do paperwork.  But the fact is it all needs to get done.

That being the case, I’m always looking for tools to help me improve in this area.  There are a few books on my list that I haven’t quite grabbed yet.  Granted, I’m OK with the idea that it will never be a great strength for me, but I have to get better at it to accomplish the things I want to over time.

Today I found a free e-book via a blog by Jonny Baker that I usually pass over fairly quickly in my reader.  The book is by Mark McGuiness and is called Time Management for Creative People.  I’ll let you know how it is as I check it out.  But it is free, so go get yourself a copy too.

Anyone else out there have similar issues?

    ok… so I have a problem with time management too… and ppl that really know me wouldn’t think this because I constantly schedule everything… I have a monthly, weekly, and daily planner and I write out my next week every friday, and I look at it thoughout the week…. but I never really follow it… well at least I never get anything on my check list done… maybe I expect too much… idk. But I think it has to do with time management too… or maybe just motivation… hmmmm :)
