I’m all about being organized, but I sure could improve on my time management. Productivity is something I hold in high regard, yet I know I waste too much time not doing things that I want to accomplish. It drives me nuts.
Thanks for the resource.

Now, I don’t exactly want to know how much time I spend reading…

(Groan.) But truly, I was just thinking about this over the weekend. I can’t complain about how little time I have if I refresh Twitter like a mad woman. I’ve gained a lot of awareness recently, but have miles to go. And minutes to claim!

I’ve done this exercise several times over the last two years and it’s life-changing.

I didn’t track things per minute, but I drew up my hours on a grid to see where my time went. I think I should do the exercise again now that I have kids!

And recently, to create time for more productive things, I stopped playing games on my iPhone (I get addicted to games pretty easily!). I’m a bit amazed by the progress I’ve made in my other hobbies since then!
