How Do You Manage Your Time?

organizer.jpgDo you feel that you have too much to do and not enough time to do it in? We're being pulled in hundreds of different directions nowadays which adds to the perception that we can never get anything done. So how does New York Times blogger Marci Alboher catch up? She has a special system of maintaining emails. She also eliminates unnecessary meetings, sets boundaries when necessary, works when she's most productive (which, for me, is typically late at night), and knows when to say no at times when a "yes" will be counterproductive. How do you manage motivate yourself to get things done? Let's hear your tips in the comments.

AU - this sounds awfully familiar to something we ran last week. Either that or I'm getting deja vu.


    Conduct regular calendar threat assessments. I can document everything so that there are no conflicting events - but project due dates, dead lines, and other critical events that have a leadup will bite me on the ass every time. So I conduct a project manager esque threat assessment to consider all of my commitments and which ones might impact on my ability to meet the others. Then I reschedule/cancel/rearrange as required to make sure I can get everything done.
